E-Rickshaw

Powered by batteries, this eco-friendly mode of public transportation with its zero emissions aims at drastically reducing the capital city’s rising carbon footprint

The latest hit in Delhi is The E-rick. This striking vehicle is an initiative by Eco-Activate, sponsored by Vodafone.

The E-rick, with its state-of-the-art battery powered transmission has been introduced as an emission free mode of public transport. The vehicle’s main components are claimed to be made from fully recyclable polyethylene cabin, supported by a heavy duty modular steel frame and an advanced, digitally controlled electric propulsion system.

Applauding the initiative, Chief Minister of Delhi, Smt. Sheila Dikshit said, “There is a need for collaborative efforts to make Delhi a pollution-free zone. We are extremely proud to lend support to E-ricks in Delhi and look forward to more and more people opting for green technologies such as this.”

Taking about the initiative Minaal Mehra, Chief Executive Officer & Co-Founder, Eco Activate says, “Eco-Activate takes pride in giving India its first ever Eco-friendly mode of public transport, E-rick.” Adding to this, Mr. Ashish Jain, Managing Director & Co- Founder, Eco Activate extends his special thanks to the research project on cycle rickshaws, undertaken by the Institute of Urban Transport, Ministry of Urban Development, Government of India which has helped them shape up the project. The new E-rick will be operating on some of Delhi’s busiest roads, which sees a high density of traffic movement each day.

While 10 of these battery-operated, eco-friendly rickshaws on the roads, MCD hopes to launch 4,000 of these before the Commonwealth Games. Said an MCD official: “We hope to replace all rickshaws plying in the city with the new e-ricks. There are a total of 99,000 licenced rickshaws in Delhi.” Sources: The Times of India , ZigWheels and Auto Veda
