E-lax plans to solve Pollution Crisis in Mumbai
Kaustubh Shinde, They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store. Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!
In India, an Auto Rickshaw is the life blood of transportation. It performs so many important tasks such as talking the kids to school and making sure their parents reach their office as well. But it is not the most refined among other means of transport.
Sure, the new CNG Rickshaw give more mileage and pollutes less but at the end of the day, it is still a combustion engine and will emit some toxins in the air.
So a budding designer, Prajwal Ullal decided to solve this pollution crisis by presenting a concept called E-lax – a low cost, highly efficient, eco-friendly product.
E-lax is powered by a 3.5kW wheel motor with a battery pack that can help you travel 75kms on a single charge. The entire pack can be charged by a normal household plug within 4-6 hours. E-lax also boasts of an improved space and comfort over the current rickshaws.
Sure, it is not as radical as Taxi Green Mumbai Concept but might just do the job.
Which one do you support? Taxi Green Mumbai or E-lax?
