E-rickshaws are widely acknowledged as a viable alternative to gasoline, diesel, and compressed natural gas auto rickshaws. It is anticipated while analysing the market in depth that growing end-user affordability, better daily earnings than cycle rickshaws, the attainment of cost-advantage over auto-rickshaws, and increased investment made by the manufacturers for the development and design of more affordable and efficient rickshaws are expected to boost and benefit the e-rickshaw market during the forecast period.

According to the findings of Future Market Insights, the demand for electric rickshaws is on the rise as they are causing zero tailpipe emissions and are widely used for first/last-mile connectivity in cities across the country. These three-wheeled electric-powered vehicles are also helping in bridging the public transport service gaps for commuters. Therefore, e-rickshaws can be viewed as the best low-cost shared mode of public transport for last-mile connectivity in the country.

However, the cost of charging stations and the quality of EV batteries are considered the primary challenge in adopting e-rickshaws. These vehicles cannot be utilized while being charged due to their need to be connected to a single place. The experts of FMI have also revealed the fact that overcharging of EV batteries can cause severe issues to the vehicle like rusting of the grid, shortage of water in the battery, spoilage of battery material, and others, and is expected to pose a considerable threat to the expansion of the market.

FMI has analyzed that the government is likely to support the electrification of auto-rickshaws as a proactive policy toward sustainable mobility in urban areas. It has also been identified that adopting this mode of commute is likely to reduce the level of carbon emission and help keep the environment green. Hence, a consistent rise in sales of e-vehicles across the world is projected to boost the market further.
