Electric Rickshaws have been the last-mile connectivity for the past decade or so, with the number on the road only increasing rapidly. They have proven to be the cheapest and the easiest mode of transportation across cities. 

Starting an electric rickshaw business is not too much of a hassle and does not involve a lot of paperwork. Electric rickshaws are provided on an EMI by a lot of manufacturers. They pose as a gateway to independence for both men and women in the poor and underprivileged societies and to be the breadwinner of the family. Even working individuals can invest in an electric rickshaw and rent them out to earn a decent amount on the side.

An electric rickshaw is cheaper than most petrol/diesel vehicles and is preferred by many as  means of public transport. They incur an initial investment of about 1.5 lacs per vehicle. Investing in a number of electric rickshaws is great if you are looking to rent them out, incurring a cost of about 10 lacs if you purchase 8 - 10 rickshaws. You could rent these rickshaws out for a minimum of INR 300 - INR 350 and generate a daily income of close to INR 3000.

It is also essential to note that rental of electric rickshaws incurs other expenses such as electricity charges and maintenance or repair of the vehicle which would take approximately INR 1000 per day and INR 600 per month respectively. Owning numerous electric rickshaws would also mean that you would need a parking space for all of them, which would also require investment. 

Here’s a mock plan that gives you an idea of how much you can earn from an electric rickshaw business on a monthly basis with a minimum of 5 electric rickshaws:

4Partner SalaryRs.15,000
5Cleaner's SalaryRs.3,000
7Revenue (5 rickshaws)Rs.60,000

An electric rickshaw rental business is the most smart and viable form of business, not just for you but for the drivers as well. And with the growing demand for electric rickshaws as well as the plans being initiated by the government for them, electric rickshaws will soon become the face of public transportation.

Noise pollution is often overlooked and so are its effects. It is one of the biggest pollutants in big cities which have a higher number of vehicles on the road. The effects of noise pollution, unlike other forms of pollutants, are often invisible to the eye. It is found to be linked to an increase in hypertension which in turn is a gateway to numerous health problems. The effects of noise pollution are slow and not evident until it's too late, and automobile traffic is the biggest contributor to it.

The rise of Coronavirus all over the world is very concerning and has forced many countries, including India, to enforce a lockdown. The reduction of automobiles has proved to be a blessing for numerous animals. The cities sound chirpier now because of less busy streets, and the mortality rate of birds and animals has also reduced. The effects of lesser vehicles on the road proves how the world could otherwise be. 

At least 24% of deaths that occur in India in a year solely due to noise pollution. Electric mobility is said to lessen the noise pollution to a considerable amount. Given that electric vehicles are still pretty new and there are not many electric vehicles on the road, it is difficult to measure the impact of them on noise pollution, electric vehicles are still known to produce less noise. 

At the end of the day, lesser pollution is only for a better life on earth for both humans and animals. The advancements in the automobile industry, if used to their full potential, will prove to be beneficial in the long run.

Discussion about the growth of electric mobility has been around for the past decade. Their necessity has grown further given the need for sustainability and reduction in emissions. India has started its widespread revolution of electric vehicles and has been successful over the last decade, and has a promising future in electric mobility.

According to Wikipedia, India is the third largest producer of electricity and the third largest consumer of it. Given that, there have been concerns about electricity being generated by fossil fuels and thus being harmful to the environment, hence electric mobility not being sustainable. But as a long term goal, electricity can be generated using hydropower, solar energy, wind power, etcetera. With the increase in the electric vehicle industry, already existing alternatives to electricity generation can be made use of even more. Heading towards 100% clean energy is also another way to ensure less harmfulness.

It is generally argued that electric vehicles are more harmful than helpful. But in cities like Delhi where pollution is on the high, electric vehicles are its most efficient form of transportation. It is said that spending one day in Delhi amidst all its pollution is equivalent to smoking up to 25 cigarettes a day.

If electric vehicles are powered by clean energy, they can reduce air pollution. They are also the most convenient, cheaper and easier to maintain vehicles. Not just that, electric vehicles are great for the electric grid. With better batteries and an increase in the energy density, the batteries used for electric vehicles could be more useful. If planned correctly, electric vehicle batteries can be used to supply electricity to homes during times of crisis or problems with power supply. 

With a proper study of the electricity consumption by electric vehicles in an area, the appropriate number of charging stations can be built, thus meeting the demand with supply. With smarter technology, the possibility of power failures that come with charging too many electric vehicles at the same time at charging stations can also be avoided.

Electric vehicles are better not only for the environment but also for the people. Combustion vehicles pose a greater threat to the well-being of the environment and people than electric vehicles do. Companies like Uber have been moving toward adapting electric vehicles for their transportation services already. With smart, long term planning, electric vehicles can prove to be the most efficient and sustainable solution to environmental issues.

Climate change in the past decade has made the Earth a hazardous place to survive on. There are a number of factors that contribute to climate change, but automobile emissions stand as the third biggest contributor. The greenhouse emissions from combustion vehicles have been increasing at an alarming rate and call for a curb.

Changes in the climate not only affect the planet but also humans. Unfavorable weather conditions could reduce crop yield leading to malnutrition among people. Increased heat leads to heat strokes and is known to cause infectious diseases. Increased heat could lead to droughts affecting the overall health of people and leading to dehydration.

Although removing combustion vehicles off the road is not the only way to better climate change, it is a small and effective step towards a better living. Combustion vehicles alone contribute about 15% to the climate change and eliminating them would prove to be fruitful for the environment given their higher carbon footprint.

Research shows that the releases by electrical vehicles are less harmful and lower in intensity when compared to combustion vehicles. The emissions of electric vehicles are also said to decrease/ get cleaner overtime as the environment gets cleaner, which is not the case with combustion vehicles. Although electric vehicles are safer, they also generate risk of higher electricity generation and subsequently a harmful emission. But with the use of solar power and wind to generate electricity, the emissions from power plants can also be significantly reduced and improved.

The number of public transport India has on the road, it is even more crucial that we adopt an electric friendly means of transport. Electric rickshaws are one of the most commonly used vehicles of public transport, and the higher the number of electric rickshaws, the better for the environment. 

The sudden rise of Coronavirus has proved that with enough effort, the world can be a cleaner, better place to live in. The pollution in numerous most polluted cities of India has come to an all-time low, and the only way to keep this consistent is to adapt more environmental-friendly means of transportation. For a sustainable future and the better health of the planet, it is necessary that adequate measures are taken to curb climate change, city by city.

Electric rickshaws had taken to the road back in 2011, and their number has been increasing each day. More and more individuals are taking up an electric rickshaw business and so are manufacturers. 

Electric rickshaws come with an ease of driving, are extremely profitable and very easy on the environment. With electric rickshaws comes a decrease in the cost and maintenance. All because it is battery operated. 

But how does one go about deciding which battery to choose? Or what to look for in a battery?

Since the electric rickshaw flourishment in early 2011s, there has not been a lack of manufacturers in the nation. An abundance of manufacturers have taken up the manufacturing of electric rickshaws and their components, and are expanding their business overtime because of the increasing demand.

This blog will tell you what you should look for in a battery before you make the plunge.

Battery life: It’s a no brainer that battery life is the most essential component of an electric rickshaw, but not all batteries are made for you. The batteries of electrical vehicles generally last you about 6-12 months.  Most of the electric vehicle batteries are lead acid batteries, but very few of them are deep discharge batteries. Deep discharge batteries come in their own, different types, lasting from four to eight years. Deep discharge batteries work by using the most of its capacity while discharging energy as opposed to standard lead acid batteries that discharge energy in short, sudden bursts, not using their energy to the fullest capacity.

Build of batteries: Like said above, all electric vehicle batteries use lead acid batteries. They only vary according to their capacity of discharge. But is that all that matters? Even if you bought a deep discharge battery promising a life of 8 years, how can you be sure of it? Without knowing the build - everything that went into manufacturing the battery, its life cycle or durability cannot be set in stone. It is paramount that you talk to someone who is incharge, and ensure that it is a hundred percent safe, and if the batteries have been properly tested.

Maintenance: Maintenance of anything can be a tedious job. Especially if you have invested a huge sum on it, and it demands constant maintenance. Running an electric rickshaw business is not all that easy either, and as a potential electric rickshaw business owner, you do not have all the time in the world to keep yourself busy with repairs and maintenance. When looking for batteries, looking for such batteries that have lower maintenance is beneficial, coupled with easy availability of repair and maintenance, Buying a high maintenance battery with easily available repair and maintenance is just running for a loss. 

Charging stations: The rise in electric rickshaws on the road calls for an increase in the charging stations in the nation. Unfortunately, there are not as many charging stations and petrol/diesel pumps in India. Before investing in an electric rickshaw, you would want to ensure that there are enough charging stations for you to charge your batteries.  

Solar Panels: Solar panels are a great way of charging batteries, considering that your battery supports charge by solar power. It is an ideal plan if most of your business takes place during the day. But if most of your business takes place during the night, solar panels are really not the ideal fit. You could still invest in a solar power charge supporting battery, for the feasibility of running your any time of the day or night. But this also incurs expensive costs of EV panels and battery sets and also increases the depreciation in the long run. Weighing the pros and cons of both kinds of batteries, and then deciding which one would suit your business the best is beneficial.

Battery Costs: Cost is very evidently the most important factor. It is important to note that as the price of the batteries increases, so does its rate of depreciation, and in turn resulting in higher maintenance costs. There are also batteries specifically made for electric vehicles that use other chemicals apart from lead acid, but their costs are 5 times the price of lead acid batteries, and do not provide a great life cycle.

Starting an electric rickshaw business can be very challenging - there are numerous factors you will have to consider before diving into one of the most profitable forms of business. Ensuring you have done your part of the research will help you make the right decisions for a better tomorrow, not just for you but for the nation.

Electric rickshaws have taken the Indian streets by storm over the last decade, and have become increasingly popular as a replacement to the standard rickshaws.

In India, the earliest attempt to design electric rickshaws was taken up by the Nimbkar Agricultural Research Institute in the late 1990s, but they have only picked up steam since 2008, and especially over the last few years, they have shown remarkable growth. Given that the Indian Government has announced its intention of having an all electric fleet by 2030, that growth only promises to prosper even more. 

But how are they made?

Electric rickshaws are extremely lightweight, and have a mild steel tubular chassis, consisting of three wheels. They use a brushless direct current motor, which is usually manufactured in China and India. The chassis in the Chinese version usually consists of very thin iron or aluminium sheets. Fibre versions are also very popular in India owing to their endurance and low maintenance costs. 

The size and seating capacity of the vehicle varies from vendor to vendor, and some of them offer a lot of customisation according to the consumer’s desire. 

China is by far the largest manufacturer of electric rickshaws and its spare parts, due to its low labour cost and high production rates. China imports a lot of such electric vehicles to India and Bangladesh, and the thriving industry has led to hundreds of electric rickshaw manufacturers in the country. 

Electric rickshaws have been gaining ground in India for a decade now, but until a few years ago, they were mostly imported from China. Thanks to the boom of the electric vehicle industry in India, a lot of local manufacturers like Syndicate Motors, have emerged, and are providing stiff competition to their overseas counterparts. 

Electric rickshaws can vary based on body and design depending on if it is a load carrier, which can carry up to 500-1000 kg, or a passenger vehicle. It can vary all the way from having no roof to a full body with windshield and other facilities for the driver and passengers. They are also distinguished based on the controller unit, and voltage supplied by it and its current output; the electrical system used in the Indian version is 48V. The weight of the electric rickshaws differ as well depending on the model, but for the most part, they are extremely lightweight. 

Solar electric rickshaws have also been around, but have failed to make any substantial mark. They work with solar panels mounted on the electric rickshaw, and thereby supplying power to the battery. However, in practice, they have proven to be extremely restrictive for daytime usage, and ineffective, in general.

Syndicate Motors manufactures 60% of its electric rickshaw components locally to put emphasis on local manufacturers. Syndicate Motors is a manufacturer of electric vehicles that combat environmental issues and economic issues in India.

Public transport is essential to the Indian lifestyle, and perhaps no other vehicle is as significant and iconic in the country as the rickshaw. 

Rickshaws have long been the most popular means of public transport in India, and over the last decade or so, a new alternative has emerged in the form of electric rickshaws. 

Why choose electric rickshaws as your business plan?

Electric rickshaws are not only a more cost-effective substitute, but also an environment friendly option. With pollution being an ever growing concern, an alternative to petrol/diesel vehicles is essential.

The battery operated rickshaws save you from the hassle of refuelling while helping you save up your hard earned cash. 

Electric rickshaws are a booming business, and are thus in popular demand, but here are a few things to keep in mind before you make the plunge: 

Do Your Research 

With so many companies emerging in the electric rickshaw sector, it is essential that you do proper research about the brand and the particular electric rickshaw that you’re looking to buy. The internet provides an abundance of information - check out reviews online, talk to people. Most companies allow you to take a test drive – use it as a means to ensure it’s the vehicle of your dreams before you invest. 

Fast Charging

Some electric rickshaw vendors provide fast charging support which makes your life much easier. You’re up and running in no time rather than having to wait hours on end, waiting for it to finish charging. 


The battery is the most crucial component of an electric rickshaw, which is what makes it stand out from all the other vehicles on the road.  When buying an electric rickshaw, you would want to make sure it’s reputable and a branded one. It would also help ensure that it lasts as long as possible before you need a replacement.

Strong Chassis

Electric rickshaws are extremely lightweight compared to other vehicles, but you would want to make sure that it has a strong and robust chassis to sustain any potential damage. Most electric rickshaws in the market come with a front metal panel, to save the vehicle from possible damages and conveniently placed handbrakes. 


While you do not have to worry about refuelling in an electric rickshaw, you would want excellent battery life, so that it continues going, and does not run out of juice when you need to operate it. 

Charging Points

The Government has been working hard to build more and more charging points across the country as the electric vehicles segment is growing at a rapid pace. But you would want to certify that there are enough of them in your city, and your usual route of travel, so that you can charge it up whenever you need to and without hassle.

Seating Capacity 

Your customers would want a cosy ride, so it is important to ensure that the seats are comfortable, and that the seating capacity is to your desire. Usually, 5-6 seaters are considered optimal. A larger seating capacity would also mean more business for you. 


As electric rickshaws are a long-term investment, so it is vital to see to it that you are getting adequate warranty for your vehicle and its specific parts. There is a possibility, like any other machine, that they are a victim of an unforeseen event. A warranty could help you save lots of money in the long run. 

Customer Support

It is indispensable that the brand you purchase from has sufficient service centres as well as great customer support, so that help is never far away if and when you run into any kind of trouble with your vehicle.


The Government is fully on-board with electric vehicles, and provides certain incentives to lure potential buyers, which could be really helpful for you while buying and beyond. 

Electric rickshaws have taken to the road in the most efficient and environment-friendly way. The e-vehicles segment is expected to grow at a rapid pace in the near future, and stepping your foot in now will ensure your sustainability.
