Prices of fossil fuels like petrol and diesel shows no mark of decreasing since they hit the Rs 100 a litre mark in certain part of our country. And we all know in major cities like Mumbai and Delhi these prices have breached the rupees 80 per litre mark.
Despite of every chapter on social media platforms. Political parties with new issues to put up with each other. Some have rightly spoken on the extraordinary excise duty imposed by the central government.
Although fuel prices didn’t reach searches astronomical levels before this spike in global but in this regard the government has defended itself by citing how global crude oil prices have been risen by more than 50% since October 2020. But the fact remains that for the past few yours the cost of buying petrol and other crude oil like diesel speeder man leave for personal vehicle used as it and into the household budgets of many ordinary Indians.
But still this site over this crude oil at transitions that help to introduce for the opportunity e of electric vehicle in the India. There are a plethora of vehicle purchase options in the Indian market.
According to Economics time EVS runs at 110th cause of guzzling diesel engine costs. Meanwhile, this article concludes how the cost of running an EV on a per month basis is 85-90% cheaper as compared to a fuel vehicle. One of the starter owner said “A conventional vehicle has more than 2,000 components, but when we convert it to electric, there are hardly 20.”
RACEnergy: This Hyderabad-based start up has developed a conversion kit that can be retrofitted into an existing diesel-powered three-wheeler and convert it into an electrical one using a battery swapping model for just Rs 50,000. Once converted, auto drivers, save anywhere between 40-50% of their running costs, depending on certain variables. The auto drivers recover their cost of buying the kit in about 12-15 months, and this tenure is calculated only based on the amount they save in operating expenditure. With each battery swap, these three-wheeler EVs obtain a range of 100 km.
ETrio: Founded in 2017, this Hyderabad-based startup has reimagined EV adoption with a uniquel approach converting ICE (Diesel/ Petrol) vehicles into electric.
Obtaining certification from regulatory bodies like ARAI and ICAT for electrification of commercial vehicles, the startup is converting cars like the Maruti Alto and Dzires into electric ones with a battery range of up to 150 km on a single charge. The cost of the electric conversion kit is about Rs 4 lakh, but consumers can also opt for a lease on the kit or they can purchase the electrified car directly from them. The initial investment in this regard may seem high, but the long term savings in converting to electric cannot be denied.
Folks Motor: Calling itself India’s first hybrid-electric retrofit car company, the Delhi-based startup claims that it can convert any manual gearbox IC-engine car into a hybrid for just Rs 1-2 lakh depending, of course, on the make and model, according to Express Drives.
Backed by their proprietary technology platform ‘Hybrid ReGeN Drive’ regenerative braking technology, “the hybrid retro fitment system combines the benefits of both hybrid and EV drive modes, with pure-electric driving enabled on neutral gear within the manual transmission of the car,” as per this article.
“When driving on default hybrid mode, the batteries get self-charged internally and can be used to drive the car on electric mode for up to 50 Kms depending on the battery size,” it added.
Altigreen: Founded in 2012, the Bengaluru-based developed a low-cost technological solution that can essentially convert any existing fossil-fuel-based vehicle from bikes to trucks into their hybrid version, and in the process, improve the vehicle’s fuel efficiency.
“Making partially-electrified vehicles possible, Altigreen HyPixi is a 4-wheeler electric kit that works alongside existing internal combustion engines and can be retrofitted on in-use vehicles (both diesel and petrol) converting them to a hybrid-electric vehicle. HyPixi operates without needing any external charging from the grid, and using regenerative braking, intelligent 48V charging and electric assist, it can achieve 25% improvement in vehicle mileage, thanks to Altigreen’s proprietary modular architecture,”
