Electric Rickshaw provides efficient use of energy and saves money. Electric Rickshaw are not only helpful in cutting the air pollution but also help in reducing noise pollution. Electric Rickshaw are very silent and smooth and do not produce loud noise like the auto rickshaws. Electric Rickshaw helps in preservation of the environment. Almost all types of fuel used cause pollution. Electric Rickshaw is a means of livelihood for many people in India. They can earn decent money through this vehicle and can support their family. Since they use electricity, they do not require oil to lubricate the engine. Thus oil changing was a cumbersome procedure of past. Autos have an engine and a gear box which is burdensome. Electric rickshaws don’t have this problem. The motor is much smaller and the battery is below it, thus maintaining them is easier as there are less moving parts. A very important advantage of these rechargeable batteries is that almost 100 per cent of these batteries can be effectively recycled thus solving the problem of disposing these batteries.
