Extramile Gas Tech has launched the Road King electric rickshaw on to the roads of the country. The Road King is priced at Rs. 1.25 lakhs.
The indigenously fabricated Road King e-rickshaw can easily carry a total of 5 people ( passengers and the driver) and weighs in at 450 kilograms. It needs an 8-hour charge to be able to travel 100 kilometers and consumes just 8 units of power and runs at a cost of just 65 paise per kilometer.
E-Rickshwas are fast becoming a popular alternative to petrol, LPG and CNG auto rickshaws thanks to the non-polluting status and low running costs.
