Shift to Electric Vehicles to escape from the ever hiking fuel prices.

Adapting to Evs is a great Idea from the environmental perspective, eco-friendly Evs are a great alternative for gasoline/diesel and petrol vehicles, with fuel prices almost touching Rs 100/litre, electric vehicles are a great alternative to cut down the costs. If you own an electric vehicle you are obviously the one with a greater vision for future.. you are not only counted among the group of the “smartest people on the globe”, you’ll be creating a big difference for the environment, and saving lots money.

Although Electric cars are a smarter alternative for orthodox fuel vehicles on many grounds, electric cars still has its own cons which are to be yet addressed considering the long mile drives pickup and safety, but Electric Autos are one segment which has defined the purpose of utilization, considering their limited usage and range of utilization. Hyderabad based Adapt Motors has designed two stunning Electric Autos Sweekar (Passenger Auto) and Sweekar- L ( Electric Load puller Auto) which are a smarter alternative over Diesel/petrol autos and can effectively address 80% of this segment needs.

Adapt motors has done extensive research before designing these two electric autos and arrived at an understanding that passenger autos are nowadays being maximum utilised to commute passengers from on route to the other and in majority cases they have fixed and specific routes with overall commuting distance per day not exceeding 100 km, keeping this in mind it launched Sweekar – Passenger E – Rickshaw which gives 100/km mileage with a overnight charge of 5 to 6 hrs. It can be easily plugged in into power in the night time and can be used throughout the day without any interruptions.

Even commercial cargo pullers are majorly being utilised by Appliances stores, Hardware stores to deliver customer orders or by restaurants to deliver food from their central kitchen to different own outlets. Electric Cargo Autos can be a smarter alternative for all these categories as their usage is very much defined and the driving range is not exceeding more than 100 km/ day, Sweekar- L  comes with a 500kg load pulling capacity and gives 100 km millage with just 5-6 hrs of charging which is very much meeting the requirements and public is happy to replace diesel autos with E- cargos as it gives better ROI and it costs them only 40 paisa/km.

In both the cases, Passenger E Rickshaw and E – Cargo if the driving range is beyond 100 km, owners can charge the autos in the lunch breaks and other small breaks between the rides. Maintenance of Electric Autos is also very easy, you just need to change the distilled water once a month. With the ever-growing fuel prices, customers are finding Electric Autos as a great alternative to fuel vehicles.


Sweekar – The nextgen Electric Passenger Auto

According to a recent research by Peter Lilienthal of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, if we can transform from diesel/ petrol vehicles to Electric Vehicles, we would see a 42% national average reduction in CO2 emissions, with all these hustles and bustles in Ev segment top car brands are still finding it tough to crack Indian market as the transformation from fuel vehicles to EVs is not progressing as expected. But surprisingly, e-bikes. e- rickshaws, e – cargos and other commercial utilities has been drastically adapting to electric vehicle usage to cut down the fuel costs which will finally result in bringing down the overall product cost.

In this historic transformation, Hyderabad based Adapt Motors has been a step ahead in the race in bringing the maximum number of “Make In India” e – rickshaws on to the Indian roads. Currently, thousands of Electric rickshaws are being commercially utilised across Telangana for commuting passengers from one place to the other. Not only in Hyderabad, our Passenger E Rickshaws are also been widely used even in remote areas across south India due to its ease in operation and a throwaway cost/ kilometre rate. In metro cities, these passenger electric Autos are being used to commute passengers from one place to another place with almost no noise and pollution and allowing the urban living to breathe clean and helping nature to stay greener.

Passengers commuting in the cities are appreciating the efforts of the company for giving such a eco friendly EV product to the world and are taking this as inspiration to live more eco friendly and trying to eliminate all kinds of eco hazardous products from their life, whereas rural users are  finding it as a solution to the real big problem of not finding petrol pumps nearby all these days.

Adapt Motors – A new friend to nature and going strong towards its goal.

We started in 2014, with a motto of keeping the planet more green and clean by launching electric autos to address the pollution problem. Till 2014, thousands of Diesel/petrol autos were moving across the city throughout the day leaving hazardous emission which was polluting the air very badly and making it unbreathable, Adapt motors was launched with a single point agenda and goal to address this huge threat to the planet and to eliminate the pollution problem completely.

We know It’s a big challenge, and we also very well knew that we have chosen a tough path but, we strongly believed in our passion and we have set our mission vision very clearly to eliminate pollution causing vehicles completely from this planet and help to breath clean. Although we had big plans to enter into various other segments, we have first chosen to enter into e rickshaw segment considering the affordability and ease of push. When we released our first Auto, as usual, we faced so many rejections due to various reasons, primarily due to less awareness among the public on sustainability and durability of Electric Vehicles, we struggled initially as the doors were not wide opened for electric vehicles across India,

We quickly changed our game plan and strongly decided to first bring awareness among the public and to help them understand the benefits of using electric vehicles for them as well as for nature. we reached them in various ways, conducted many workshops, encouraged them for trail runs, displayed vehicles across Hyderabad. although we were a normal startup like everyone with limited funds, we still opted for costly television and print media slots to reach people to drive this awareness campaign of educating them in adapting to electric vehicles, though it was tough to run finances in the initial days almost with no sales, we know what we are doing, we were able to see the future clearly and we were well determined and prepared for everything. Slowly our hard work started paying back.

With these campaigns, we succeeded in creating a positive buzz in the market, the public started enquiring about our electric vehicles, in the second year, we were able to bring hundreds of electric autos on to the roads and as expected almost all our customers were so satisfied with the deliverables, mileage and performance of our electric autos. Customers found it very economical in terms of capital investment, as well as maintenance, compared with diesel/petrol autos. We were very so happy that we are able to create a positive buzz in the market and slowly the public started adapting to Electric Autos. The word of mouth spread so strong as our e- rickshaws started delivering 100 km mileage with just 4 to 5 hrs charge as we promised. Several NGO’S, Large-scale organisations and government bodies came forward and gave us hundreds of E – Autos orders across Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, we were able to meet all their requirements, and kept all our promises and delivered their requirement in time. To give easy access to all our spare parts, we opened 22+ dealership locations across South India and in no time emerged as one of the Leading Electric Vehicles Manufacturers in India.

With our growing popularity, we even got a place in Telangana’s prestigious T- HUB which helped us to come under the limelight, we won several prestigious awards and supplied our Electric Rickshaws to various government organisations, with all the efforts, today we are the proud supplier of electric autos for Telangana government for its various requirements. We even customised our autos to make them fit for various purposes and our customers are loving it. With all the hard work and dedication and never dying fire within to see this planet green, today we are happy to see thousands of our electric autos running on roads causing zero pollution to nature. All these efforts made us the best electric vehicle manufacturing company across south India and we are heading strongly to emerge as India’s Best Electric Vehicle Manufactures in the near future.


How Hyderabad is emerging as the new hub for Electric Vehicles in India?

Hyderabad Biryani and its innovative startups are the two things which amazed the world. Hyderabad is always a step ahead in innovating and experimenting, may be due to its strong Tech connections with Silicon Valley or the fire in the youth to deliver global products, whatever the reason may be, Hyderabad Startups are emerging as new solutions for the toughest problems the world has been facing so far.

Be it Tech startups, Mobile Apps, IoT, Automobiles, Agri and what not, Hyderabad startups are always in news for all the good reasons. But surprisingly and necessarily Hyderabad is emerging as a new hub for electric vehicles in India which is a good sign to protect our natural resources, when it comes to Electric Vehicles from decades, thoughts go only on much-hyped Electric cars, but there are many other vehicles which are polluting the nature as bad as Diesel/Petrol cars pollute. One such segment is Electric rickshaws and E -Cargo carriers which are widely known as Load pullers or Carrier Autos.

The huge number of Diesel/Petrol Passenger Rickshaws and Cargo Carriers are being used for public transport and commercial usage. With increasing population and huge movement of people and goods from one place to the other, the number of diesel and petrol rickshaws hitting roads are doubling year by year and these heavy usage of fuel rickshaws has become a real problem which is polluting the air very badly and resulting in many breathing related diseases and natural disasters.

But few startups in Hyderabad as taken it as a real challenge, It’s in fact a great news to the world that from last five years at least ten companies from hyderabad has come forward to address this problem by launching Electric RIckshaws, E- Cargos and Electric Load pullers. As Hyderabadis always welcome new adaptations and products there has been an overwhelming response from the public as well from the government to switch from fuel autos to E – Rickshaws.

Among these new startups Adapt Motors has emerged as one of the strong and innovative companies ithe n Electric Rickshaw Manufacturing segment. With Make in India and Make in Telangana slogan and having a huge and well equipped manufacturing unit in Hyderabad, Adapt motors has established a strong network with 30+ dealer locations across south India and moving fast and firm towards expanding its presence across India.

The revolutionary products of Adapt Motors Sweekar – (Passenger E- Rickshaw) and Sweekar – L (Cargo E – Rickshaw) has hit the market like a storm couple of years ago and are today being widely utilised in public transports and commercial cargo movements. Sweekar E – Rickshaws come with appealing look and powerful battery which is easy to charge and delivers 100+ kms mileage with just 4 to 5 hrs charging. Thousands of E – Autos are already moving on roads of Hyderabad and very quickly spread into tier two cities of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.

The core team of Adapt motors are very dedicated to deliver much powerful E – Autos/Rickshaws with yet stunning features and the R&D is happening so strong to deliver a solar power run E – rickshaw by next year. With its innovative ideas and problem solving products that protect the nature, Adapt Motors got succeeded already in grabbing many prestigious awards in this segments.

The highly motivated marketing team of Adapt motors is not leaving a single stone unturned to educate business owners who run Hardware shops, Home Appliances, Colleges, Schools, Transport businesses, Courier services to utilize Electric Cargo vehicles for their commercial use which are very less in price compared to fuel autos. Couple of NGOs are also helping this noble cause by educating the passenger auto drivers and owners to switch to Electric Rickshaws which are cost effective. Telangana government has procured a huge number of E – rickshaws from Adapt motors and distributed them to street Vegetable/ Fruit vendors which is a huge encouragement for Electric Rickshaw Manufacturers in Hyderabad and Telangana.

State government is also exploring the other possibilities of switching completely to E – Rickshaws and E- Cargos Autos which will be a great inspiration to the public as well to switch to Electric vehicles and keep the nature more green and clean.


Why Sweekar E-Rikshaws?

We have so far witnessed many changes in our lives, things changed so fast, the best tools which are helping us today to sustain and perform better are nowhere in our lives before a decade or half. Facebook, Gmail, Twitter, Online shopping, Giant Shopping Malls and Online Taxis was never part of our lives during our childhood, but today it is tough to imagine our life without them.

Correspondingly we have seen a quick shift from orthodox habitual living to modern and well-equipped lifestyle, although this major adaption is making our lives better, there is still one vast segment in which we need to drastically upgrade to save this planet from being polluted i.e Diesel/Petrol/Gasoline usage to Electric Vehicles.

The revolution from traditional Diesel/Petrol/Gasoline Rikshaws to E- Rikshaws is slowly picking up, consumers were bit disappointed initially as few China imported vehicles didn’t meet their expectations, gradually companies like Adapt Motors made the trends shift very fast with their innovative, stronger, sleeker, safer, economical and easy to operate India made E- Rikshaws. Adapt Motors’s Sweekar E-Rikshaws are now being widely purchased as the vehicle comes with boasting features like immediate torque, silent ride, and premium performance, Sweekar E- Rikshaws also have lower fuel and maintenance costs and consumers ultimately garner social pride and responsibility from creating a better, healthier planet. For all of these reasons and more, E-Rickshaws have caught the attention of Business owners and drivers and they are loving in engaging them as they are cost effective and economical.

Have Glance at the below advantages of adapting to Sweekar E-Rickshaws 


A battery electric vehicle (BEV) has far fewer moving parts than a conventional gasoline-powered vehicle. There’s no need for liquid fuels or oil changes. There’s no transmission or timing belt to fail when you least expect it. In fact, most of the maintenance costs associated with an internal combustion engine are eliminated. Sweekar E-Rikshaws have a better emissions profile than internal combustion vehicles which helps in maintaining a clean environment.


The overall cost of EV ownership is actually lower than Diesel/Petrol/Gasoline-powered Rikshaws, one gets the maximum advantage to minimize the capital costs, our Sweekar E-Rikshaws comes with a powerful battery that gives 100 km mileage with just 3 to 4 hrs charging and that is just 40 paise or less per kilometre.


Like the Diesel/Petrol/Gasoline-powered Rikshaws Sweekar doesn’t require monthly servicing, just refill the distil water once in a month and that’s it. Spares also have a longer life than the traditional rickshaws and are much cheaper in price.This helps the business owners to save the high servicing costs, Our E-Rikshaw is easy to operate and almost anyone can drive it, all these features help you to save big money.



If you haven’t looked at what’s going on with E- Rikshaws lately, you may be surprised. Sales are growing. The EV industry is creating jobs for Indians. With Adapt Motor’s expanding network, it’s becoming more common to find our distributors stores in almost every city and small towns across South India. We encourage you to join the movement. Lead the way for a cleaner, more energy-efficient future.
