Sohinder Gill, CEO Hero Electric says Raahii e-rickshaw looks to ease hassles daily commuters and drivers face, while providing long term benefits to the environment. Raahii e-rickshaw uses a HPF Charger that consumes less power and can withstand voltage fluctuations. It also features LED light for passenger and driver, and an USB mobile charger for the driver.

Raahii e-rickshaw is ARAI certified. Vehicle maintenance is made easy through company trained personnel to troubleshoot problems. Parts are easily available at company dealerships. Doorstep service caters to institutional customers.

Raahii e-rickshaw body structure uses nut and bolt under cover with chassis, and 3mm thick L-Plate Gussets at the joints for a strong body while also keeping rusting at welds at bay. Raahii uses a superior double coat painting on the surface (25-30 microns thick), under chassis parts and front and rear side of wheels. Under body is covered in Epoxy Resin to prevent rusting. Military grade fasteners help. Nuts and bolts are redesigned to be fixed inside body covers to minimise exposure to the environment.
