OK Play India’s E-Raaja, a completely made in India eco friendly e-rickshaw
‘Make in India’ initiative of Government of India has brought some fruitful results. Among such initiatives, OK Play India’s recently launched E-Raaja, a completely made in India e-rickshaw, is highly commendable. And the best part is, this is a zero emission rickshaw.
We are extremely happy to launch the E-Raaja at a time when India is moving towards a pollution-free vehicular transport solution, said Rajan Handa, OK Play India’s Managing Director.
It took about two years of in-house research and development for the company to launch E-Raaja. Rajan Handa claimed that E-Raaja has been made completely in India unlike other e-rickshaws that use about 95% Chinese components. The company has its manufacturing units in Sohna, Haryana and Ranipet, Tamil Nadu. Both the plants have a production capacity of 3,00,000 e-rickshaws per year.
E-Raaja weighs 320 kg and has a load capacity of 700 kg. A charged battery can run up to 80km. The price of the rickshaw ranges from Rs. 1.15-1.25 lakh. E-Raaja has been approved by the International Centre for Automative Technology (ICAT). The rickshaw has many good features, including LED lights, comfortable leg space, aerodynamic grooves, and comfortable arm rest. OK Play has a global patent for the product and it is also designing rickshaws with solar panels.
