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.

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.

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.
