In Italy, there are scooters everywhere,
. . . in Amsterdam, people love their bikes,
. . . Thailand has its tuk-tuks,
. . . in India, there are rickshaws by the thousands.
These low cost people movers,
. . . are now being converted to low cost electric vehicles by the thousands, with over
. . . 1.5 million battery-powered electric rickshaws,
. . . already zipping silently around the country.
This is being driven by pure economics,
. . . as rickshaw operators opt for the:
. . . . . . silent,
. . . . . . low maintenance,
. . . . . . lower cost to operate electric rickshaws,
. . . over petrol or manual cycle rickshaws,
. . . because it’s just good business.
Compared to a cycle rickshaw,
. . . an electric rickshaw enables the operator to give more rides per day,
. . . which translates to more profit.
The lower cost per mile of the electrified rickshaws, compared to their petrol powered friends,
. . . means all those extra rides, come with a lower operating cost per kilometer,
. . . which also translates to more cash in hand at the end of the day.
Combined with the better cost of operation,
. . . easier charging is just one more reason these compact personal electric vehicles,
. . . could prove to be the best way for the people of India to slash their emissions, and
. . . take ownership of their local air quality.
