Around India in 60 Days

IN A retrofitted TUK-TUK

We’re travelling along India’s Golden Quadrilateral on a retrofitted solar powered electric auto rickshaw (tuk-tuk) and a support vehicle for 60 days and 6000 kilometres.

We started our ride from Bengaluru on May 25th 2019, and are currently on our way to Delhi NCR via Jaipur.

Other major cities along the road are - Udaipur, Gurgaon, Lucknow, Varanasi, Agra, Kolkata, Vizag, Chennai, and Vellore.

 

Our Mission is Sustainability.

The SunPedal Ride is a movement to create awareness about solar energy, sustainable mobility, and healthy living. This time we’re spanning a 6000km journey along the Golden Quadrilateral in India in 60 days. The aim is to trigger in area locals and stakeholders, UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to care for a world deeply threatened by climate change.

How Electric Mobility is Clean

2. Lower per-KM cost than petrol rickshaws

3. Super-low noise pollution

4. One battery charge = 120 kms
