The idea of e-vehicles in Delhi is not new. Only recently, the government approved a proposal by the New Delhi Municipal Council(NDMC) to procure 1,000 electric scooters in 100 locations across Delhi. The electric scooters will surely herald a new era transportation in the city. Here’s all you need to know about these electric scooters.

What’s the update?

To make sure that the electric scooters are put to use, the NDMC has also roped in a few private players. They will also help in procuring, upkeep and overall check-ups of the scooters. Once the proposal is approved, it should take about six months to finally be active in the streets of Delhi.

Details of the electric scooters

As far as the scooters themselves are concerned, they can travel up to 100 kilometers on a single charge and will reach an average speed of 45 km/h. Much like it’s predecessor, the smart cycles, these electric scooters have one goal- to reduce the carbon emission in the city.

With the growing number of vehicles in the city the carbon emissions are hitting new levels. These electronic scooters will surely help in keeping a control over the emissions.

The scooters will be implemented in two phases- where 500 will be installed in one phase, while there will 500 more in another phase. Right now, there is no word on what the 100 places are, but we do have an idea of how much the scooters will cost.

The scooters can be rented for a minimum of 15 minutes- which will cost less than ₹10. Potential commuters can rent the scooters for up to two hours. To actually make use of the scooters, all you have to do is download the app and scan the QR code when you’re at the scooters.

The scooters are especially beneficial for those who don’t have their own means of transport and are looking to return to their starting point in just a few hours. Apart from that, it will also help you beat the rush in a stylish yet eco-friendly manner.
