Bajaj Auto unveiled its small car prototype claiming that it will be twice as economical to run as the most fuel-efficient small car in the market.
Unveiling the car, Bajaj Auto Managing Director Rajiv Bajaj said it will be priced competitively but will not sell on the basis of price, twice the fuel efficiency being more effective than offering discount price.
He said that the car is two to four years in making it to consumers and will come in both diesel and petrol versions. It will be fitted with a "unique" two-cylinder engine as well as gear system.
The company is in talks with French car maker Renault and Nissan to develop the car for mass production.
The car will be manufactured at Chakan, near Pune. The plant, which is being built with an initial capacity of 250,000 units, will also produce the light trucks, which Bajaj expects to launch in 2009.
