It began as a joke on Twitter that a car would be as cheap as R150 a month.
The car is called Bajaj Qute.
Spoiler alert; however, the Bajaj Qute does not qualify as a car. In fact, according to Bajaj the vehicle falls under what is called a quadricycle. This is because of the car’s characteristics, which are those of a three-wheeler and a car.
With the skyrocketing price of living in the country- surely this would be a consideration, right?!
Many South Africans have taken the mickey out of the car; however, because of how it looks, let’s be honest though it is appealing to think about making owning a car more affordable with lower instalments for car payment too.
The Bajaj Qute has a 0.6 engine capacity and can do 36 kilometers with just a litre of petrol. The car can carry four passengers at a time, including the driver.
Unfortunately, the car is not R150 a month; the Bajaj Qute retails at R75 000 and is available in Madagascar, Mozambique, and South Africa.
