  17. Dear op Goyat ,
    Your idea sounds good . this should work .
    one more doubt . is that possible to change the battery by ourself ?
    For example if my vehicle stops in between due to battery down . I can swap the battery with another one as we change the stepney wheel of our car ?

  18. Dear Senthil
    i Appreciate yours concern regarding environment as well as best option of transportation in form of E-bike which are available in Indian Market having upgraded technology & good performance at competitive price . Regarding yours problem i would like to say that you please use/keep charger @ yours premises /room and use a extension wire upto ground floor ( from charger in your room to yours ebike @ ground floor). It is 48 V system & can not be used for another purposes so can avoid misuse easily . It is also very safe in use even if there is any leakage in yours wiring system . Hope idea will work .

  19. I’m very interested to buy a Electric vehicle . But i have series problem . I need your suggestions ….
    I live in a rented flat in 4th floor and i used to park my bike in the ground floor- common parking . i have a problem – how to charge it ? If i run a power cable from 4th floor to ground it would not be nice . Moreover i may need to convince my building owner and other people for doing this . because it has a risk of shock / power leakage. And also some people may mis-use this line for charging phone or using vacuum cleaners from this point , for which i need to pay the for their consumption. Request you to share any idea /Experience on this issue .

  22. Hello Maddy
    Even though Thermal plants produce pollution, they don’t produce it in the streets. Also with Nuclear, Wind production ramping up electricity for electric bikes will have less carbon footprint.

  23. Hello, dear sir, can any one provide details of the free services provided by the company after sale of the electric bike ? What are the basic and common problems seen in electric bike ? As I want to have a new ele. bike, please suggest best electric bike presently available in indian market with better service network. thanks…please….

  24. Fellas, how does electric bikes runs. By electricity. Now how does electricity comes. There are two sources
    Thermal power plants ( coal powered, nuclear, hsd/naphta powered) and hydal power plants. Hydal power plants cant produce not even 20% of total requirement. I guess all of you can understand how much pollution coal power plants/ nuclear power plants causes..

    • Generate Electric power through solar panels .
      Dont convert them in AC
      charge battery for Electric Two wheelers,four wheelers & emergency /night use

    • Sir, I do not agree the two wheeler petrol engine the efficiency is very low compared to power plants even if we assume that we have a petrol based power plant the electricity generated accounting for losses like power generation loss(loss at generating plant due to iron and copper loss), transmission loss (iron and copper loss) and loss at the two wheeler motor (iron and copper loss), it will still be a cheaper and less polluting compared to burning petrol in our engines. Also regenerative braking can be used to avoid breaking losses which is not possible in case of petrol based engines. This would also save lot of energy.

    • Exess electricity is available in india at night period charge vehicle at night then electricity board wil get exess income in all aspects e bykes are good

    • It is shameful for us to not upgrade our power generation technologies. We have different ways like using solar/sun for heat generation or direct power generation. Ocean waves, wind power etc…
      Only problem is we are used to over usage of electricity because of non-power efficient products. As situations changed now world is looking at alternates. Even ever person on earth should think about their individual responsibility in making earth a safe place for future generations, by encouraging alternate vehicles too.
      May be we need hybrid’s before we can switch to complete electricity or fuelcell based technologies. In our country, our governments should fuel/support research on alternate fuel technologies, instead of buying or depending on other countries research or findings. My India is great and i want our intellectual young engineers to rise up with new ideas and government/ indan companies to find/support such activities. Else by using foreign technologies and products we will keep on sending our money out of our country.

    • I wont want to take any countries name, because it is responsibility of every country, every government, every person living on earth to use alternate efficient technologies for power generation and power usage.

Else by using foreign technologies and products we will keep on sending our money out of our countries or at least this sort of or all green technologies should be developed collaboratively so that every country on earth can have the benifit and earth can become a safe place again. Love Earth and love your future generations(your children).
