Bajaj Auto Ltd. on Monday said it has launched its BS-VI range of commercial vehicles across brands --RE, Maxima, and Maxima Cargo.

The company has launched 14 BS-VI compliant products across the RE, Maxima and Maxima Cargo brands and thus has transitioned to BS-VI regime for the entire three-wheeler range, Bajaj Auto said in a statement. With the upgrade, the RE brand now comes with fuel injection technology in a 236 cc engine across three fuel options -- compressed natural gas, liquefied natural gas, and petrol, it added.

In the Maxima brand, the same engine has been re-configured to meet BS-VI emission norms, the company said. The diesel range across RE and Maxima brands meet the stringent BS-VI norms through systems like exhaust gas recirculation and catalytic converter with the same 470 cc diesel engine.

Commenting on the launch, BAL Joint President, Intracity Business Unit, Samardeep Subandh said: "The introduction of these models completes the transition of our entire product range to BS-VI emission norms ahead of time." He further said, "We are confident that the new BS6 products in RE and Maxima range will further strengthen our leadership position in the market." Bajaj Auto said it will also be providing three full free services inclusive of labour, filter and oil change across the range.
