Jugaad can also refer to a quadricycle, a means of transportation in north India, made of wooden planks and old SUV parts, variously known as kuddukka, fugga and pietereda. However, jugaad could be used as a term for any low cost vehicle. Jugaads are powered by diesel engines originally intended to power agricultural irrigation pumps. They are known for poor brakes, and cannot go faster than about 60 km/h (37 mph). The vehicle often carries more than 20 people at a time in remote locations and poor road conditions. Today, a jugaad is one of the most cost-effective transportation solutions for rural Indians. People living in North India, especially in the states of Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Punjab and parts of northern Rajasthan, have seen this vehicle on the highways, in villages and small towns, carrying people, livestock and agricultural produce.
