In the far reaches of East Asia, where the streets are a frenetic tapestry of life, they call it the “Tuk-tuk.” In the heart of India, it goes by the moniker “Auto-Rickshaw.” You’ve seen them, you’ve ridden them, and you’ve likely wondered, “When will these three-wheeled wonders get a tech and design makeover?” Well, the wait is over, ladies and gentlemen, because Montra Electric has bestowed upon these humble trikes the upgrade they’ve been crying out for over the decades.
Now, most of these auto-rickshaws, or “autos” for those in the know, chug along on LPG or CNG. But Montra Electric is rewriting the rulebook, swapping out those fossil fuel engines for a zippy electric powertrain that’ll whisk you along at a respectable 55 km/h (that’s 34.1 mph, for the uninitiated). What’s more, they’ve got the range to take you over 150 kilometers (or a smashing 93+ miles) on a single charge. Perfect for those last-mile commutes, these rickshaws are as ubiquitous as street food vendors across the Asian landscape, ensuring you get from point A to B without breaking a sweat.
Now, let’s talk design. The Montra Electric Rickshaw retains its iconic form, but it’s been given a healthy dose of sleekness. Picture this: chiseled surfaces, a forward-leaning silhouette, clean lines, and a front fascia that’s like a splash of boldness in a black canvas. At the back, you’ve got adorable circular taillights and a tailgate that swings down for your precious cargo. But that’s not all – step inside, and you’ll find space for three, or maybe even four, with the driver leading the charge upfront, gripping the handlebars like a pro biker.
But here’s where Montra Electric takes it up a notch. The handlebars are no longer just handlebars; they’re surrounded by a redesigned dashboard featuring an OLED display that elevates the whole driving experience. Yes, you read that right – no more antiquated, rickety interiors. And as if that’s not enough, this electric marvel comes with secure doors, offering safety and peace of mind to both the driver and the passengers in the back. The seats are also revamped, boasting higher backrests and extra legroom, all while keeping an eye on the affordable price tag, which is a wallet-friendly $3,700 USD.
Now, here’s the cherry on top – Montra Electric has gone digital. They’ve thrown in an app to give you a whole new rider experience. You can now monitor your vehicle’s status, keep tabs on your daily earnings, and digitally stash all those critical documents and IDs in one secure place. It’s a digital revolution on three wheels!
But that’s not all, folks. The Montra Electric ‘Super Auto’ has been crowned the winner of the Red Dot Award: Design Concept for 2023. That’s right; it’s not just practical; it’s stylish too. So, whether you call it a Tuk-tuk or an Auto-Rickshaw, Montra Electric is giving these iconic rides a makeover they rightfully deserve, blending form and function with a dash of eco-friendly electricity. It’s a winner in our book, and we can’t wait to hit the streets in style!
