  • India E-Rickshaw market crossed USD 2.5 billion mark in 2018 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX.0% during the forecast period 2019-2025. E-Rickshaw is a flexible, non-polluting and affordable means of Intermediate Para-Transit (IPT) system. E-Rickshaw is the latest entry in the Indian road transportation system. Since E-Rickshaw has been introduced in India, it has been playing a significant role in solving the issue of last mile intercity connectivity. Since 2010, E-Rickshaw has been operational in India, mostly in Delhi-NCR region. Since then, this vehicle has gained immense popularity due to environment friendly nature along with its potential to curb the carbon footprint as it is battery operated. Today, E-Rickshaw has become one of the most preferred modes of transportation in major urban and suburban cities of India. SmartE launched in October 2015, has served over 6 million ‘zero-pollution’ rides. By December 2017, SmartE aims to serve over 3 million commuters per month, through its 1,000 E-Rickshaw fleet. SmartE also aims to roll-out 10,000 vehicles by 2018-end and cross the 100,000 vehicle mark by 2020. At 100,000 vehicles, SmartE will help reduce close to a million tonnes carbon emissions, an equivalent of planting 17 million trees per year.
    Across the country, electric rickshaw has become an important part of the transport system and is expected to witness a significant growth over the forecast period on account of government plans such as the National Electric Mobility Plan (NEMP). The government aims to encourage the use of electric vehicles in India along with the commitment to build an efficient electric vehicle network including adequate charging stations and incentives on buying an electric vehicle.

Owing to such benefits, penetration of e-rickshaw is expected to increase over the future. The below figure depicts the comparison of initial cost and earning of rickshaw drivers in Delhi-NCR region.

    Basic Overview of Initial Cost and Daily Earnings of Rickshaw in Delhi
    -Rickshaws are the latest entry in the Indian road and
    Transport system. A flexible, non-polluting and affordable
    system, they have been playing a significant role in solving
    the last mile connectivity issue. Due to the absence of rules
    and norms, they have been largely operating very informally.
    While the licensing of E-Rickshaws has been given the nod
    By the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, the
    operation of this system is still ambiguous which has
    currently led to the ban order by the Delhi High Court.
    There exists the issue of monitoring and framing the rule
    book for E-Rickshaws for the safety and security of the
    commuters using these systems. Policy guidelines are
    required on whether E-Rickshaws are an Intermediate Para-
    Transit (IPT) system, who is responsible for the licensing
    and regulation and how it gets integrated and act as feeder
    to the public transport. Specific provisions are required to
    address questions on speed, vehicle specifications,
    insurance, lane traffic and fare charges. This requires a
    policy framework to address the concerns of both e-
    rickshaw drivers and its counterparts.

    According to the Society of Manufacturers of Electric Vehicles (SMEV), electric vehicles’ sale doubled in terms of volume in the FY 2017-18 compared to the previous year, majorly through unregulated E-Rickshaw market, with 850,000 E-Rickshaw sold in the specified period. The drivers of the traditional manually-pulled rickshaws have found E-Rickshaws quicker, quieter and easier to keep running as they require less effort, compared to the pedal-cycle rickshaws. This results in more rides and lesser effort for the driver, making E-Rickshaws a rather beneficial investment for them.
    The Indian government is currently focusing on promoting electric vehicles in the public transportation and fleets, with emphasis on two-wheelers and three-wheelers, taxis and buses. One of the biggest hurdles in the growth of electric vehicles in India is the dearth of charging and battery-swap stations. The Ministry of Finance is in the process of finalising a plan to spend approximately US$600 million over a period of five years to upgrade the country’s charging infrastructure as well as to provide better subsidies on electric buses. According to BNEF, India had just 425 public charging stations in 2017 and it is expected that with government and public initiatives this number will boost to 2,800 by 2022.
