4 wheels, yes. Seatbelts, yes. Engine, yes. Car? No.
IT'S got four wheels and seatbelts, but Bajaj Auto, the creator of India's first quadricycle, would rather you didn't call it a car.
Bajaj Auto is marketing the RE60 as a more stable and comfortable alternative to the three-wheeled autorickshaws that are ubiquitous on India's roads, even though it looks like a small hatchback and is expected to cost less.
Weight, top speed and other specifications, including safety standards, mean the RE60 will not be classified as a car.
Mr Rajiv Bajaj, the company's managing director, insists the RE60 is neither a car nor an autorickshaw.
The government is even creating a new classification category for the vehicle, which is expected to be launched within months.
"In every market that a three-wheeler is available, the quadricycle should be relevant," Mr Bajaj said.
The RE60 weighs 400kg and the engine, which can run on petrol or compressed natural gas, goes up to 70kmh.
