We have seen quick adoption of these e-rickshaws especially in East and North India owing to low TCO giving superior everyday savings & peace of mind due to huge aftermarket assurance from Greaves. With increasing need of mobility, lack of properly developed public transportation facilities, growing working population, the e-rickshaw market will further grow significantly”.
