New Delhi will soon be getting a different rickshaw from the usual ones.Instead of electric ,we will be riding a solar rickshaw.Soleckshaws as it will be known and it will use a strip of silicon to convert solar energy into electricity which will stored in the batteries and used to power the vehicle which will hit a top max speed of 25 km/hr.The first phase will be to introduce 1000 solar rickshaw in Delhi University, Dwarka, Pitampura, Rohini and trans- Yamuna areas.MCD plans to increase it to 10,000 in future.
It has been designed by Central Mechanical Engineering Research Institute (CMERI) with the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR).
Will be avaliable in three variants:
For plastic frame with an enhanced battery – Rs 85,000.
For plastic frame only - Rs 75,000.
For metal frame body – Rs 45,000.
