Current Plans & Developments
The competitive gain has enabled Bajaj Auto to launch innovative BS6 products to meet emission norms. The company has also managed to retain its advantages by offering best-in-class reliability, power-packed performance, and fuel efficiency. Bajaj Auto’s Maxima C three-wheeler has been a major success in India’s urban and rural markets due to these attributes. Bajaj has also ensured to transition its products from using diesel to CNG to achieve its leadership position.
The manufacturer has stated that the low operating costs of CNG have proved to be quite advantageous in recent times. Due to this, the majority of the population is making their shift towards CNG products as a viable buying option.
