Kinetic Green Energy and Power Solutions signs an MoU with Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation(MahaMetro) to supply Kinetic Safar e-rikshaws for providing last-mile connectivity in the city.

The company had launched the Kinetic Safar in 2016, which it says is India’s first ARAI approved electric three-wheeler. These e-rickshaw can be booked from mobile app and people will be able to pay online using debit/credit card or mobile payment methods. At present, as part of the initial pilot, this e-rickshaw service will be made available to commuters at Khapri, New Airport, Airport South, Airport Jaiprakash Nagar, Sitabardi Subhash Nagar and Lokmanya Nagar Metro Station in Nagpur.

Sulajja Firodia Motwani, founder and CEO, Kinetic Green Energy and Power Solutions said, “We are extremely happy to partner with MahaMetro to provide environment friendly yet cost effective mode of last mile transport to their passengers. With this MoU, we will be offering affordable rides at Rs 10 per ride to commuters of MahaMetro and I think this will also contribute to increasing popularity of the metro services. With this MoU we will be starting with a pilot batch of 20 vehicles and then eventually we will ramp to 15 vehicles per station. Kinetic Green has been providing similar fleet operation for last-mile connectivity at Kochi Metro successfully and we are confident that the citizens of Nagpur will be pleased with this service.”

Dr. Brijesh Dixit, MD, MahaMetro said, “We are excited to partner with Kinetic Green to provide e-rickshaws to our commuters in Nagpur. At MahaMetro we always have a sensitive approach towards environment, therefore, our Rail Projects are one of the greenest projects in India with up to 65 percent energy to come from solar panels.”

MahaMetro Nagpur has started to establish charging stations across the metro stations, with the first charging station at Khapri Airport metro station already being ready.
