Lohia Auto Industries has launched Narain, battery run E-Rickshaws. Narain E-Rickshaw is designed for Indian roads and commuting. Two variants – e-Riksha Narain (passenger) and Narain LC (cargo) have been launched now with more variants to be available later in the year.
Ayush Lohia, CEO, Lohia Auto Industries describes Narain as a unique offering with additional features. The brand already offers two e-rickshaws named Humrahi. Adding Narain to their portfolio makes available a wide range of electric vehicles. Narain vehicles are sensitive to Indian road conditions, climate, riding style and commuting habits etc”
Narain and Narain Lc are powered by a 1,950 watt motor and are equipped with higher battery capacity. A bigger wheelbase with 3X17 inch wheels offers highest ground clearance. Hydraulic suspension aims for a smoother and silent ride over varied road types.
Narain e-Rickshaw works on motor with chain drive mechanism tech, seen on motorcycles. This warrants durability, long battery and motor life. Narain e-rickshaw accommodates four passengers. They are low-maintenance, easy to operate and cost less as compared to traditional auto-rickshaws.
Lohia Auto Industries looks to take its electric vehicles to new corners of the country through dealer network expansion. Lohia Auto is the only company to offer 2 years warranty on electric rickshaws.
Lohia highlights the availability of cheap imported and spurious products across India that are nothing short of a honey trap. Offered for cheap at the onset, running cost are high. Non-availability of spare parts and reliable service centres makes imported variants three times more expensive than a certified made in India e-Rickshaw.
Part of 630 crore Lohia Global, Lohia Auto’s automobile interest extends to the commercial vehicle segment with diesel 3 wheelers in passenger and cargo variants launched recently.
