Intracity Vehicles have become a part of the social fabric of India and with
Qute, we are now raising the bar and ushering in a new ecofriendly solution,
which will hit a sweet spot in intra-city mobility between three-wheelers and

3-wheelers has been a leader in the last mile passenger segment and we intend
to raise the bar with the launch of Qute in Maharashtra. ”
