Greaves Retail crosses 1000 e-rickshaw sales

Kolkata, Jul 11 (UNI) Greaves Cotton, one of the leading and diversified engineering companies in India, crossed a new milestone of 1000 e-rickshaw sales.
With this, the company paves the way for a strong foundation for promoting clean shared mobility in the last mile transportation segment. These energy-efficient and reliable product portfolios of e-rickshaws are widely preferred due to superior cost economics, higher savings-per-km of the usage, and extensive aftermarket support of spares, service, charging and financing options today.
Greaves has been retailing eco-friendly e-rickshaws through a select network of over 325 retail outlets and is committed to get closer to the customer and equip with solutions that enhance the overall product usage experience.
E-rickshaws have been gaining prominence in short commute point-to-point transportation for shared mobility users. Also, it has been a boon to the unemployed youth, cycle-rickshaw pullers who find this battery-operated and motorized version as a dependable partner to earn and grow.
Commenting on this occasion, President, Special Projects, Greaves Cotton Limited, Mr K Vijayakumar said, “We have received a favourable response from the users of e-rickshaw, a smartly engineered and rugged e-rickshaw, now accessible from select Greaves retail outlets across the country. We have seen quick adoption of these e-rickshaws especially in East and North India owing to low TCO giving superior everyday savings and peace of mind due to huge Aftermarket assurance from Greaves. With the increasing need for mobility, lack of properly developed public transportation facilities, growing working population, the e-rickshaw market will further grow significantly”.
The market observations have shown that switching to e-rickshaws has reduced the physical fatigue that these cycle rickshaw pullers were facing earlier and improved their quality of life. Now, these drivers are able to spend more quality time with their family and making approximately Rs. 200-300 more every day than what they used to make earlier as it has empowered them to do more trips on a daily basis. E-rickshaws from Greaves has truly transformed their lives by improving their earning ability. With growing e-rickshaws, there lies a huge opportunity to build sustainable eco-footprint and create social inclusion that enables building India responsibly.
