ETI Dynamics brings solar-electric hybrid scooter in India
Riding a scooter in harsh summers is quite challenging. ETI Dyanamics has showcased a prototype of its solar electric hybrid scooter which comes with a canopy of bendable solar panel to provide some shade to the rider and also power the vehicle.
The prototype can be charged on the go and can travel for more than 50 km on a single charge at a top speed of 45 kmph. “It is light weight, has a weather proof design and propagates the concept of mobile charging infrastructure,” according to the company.
ETI Dynamics is looking for other adaptations of this prototype such as auto-rickshaws, buses, golf-carts and shuttles in the near future. “The addition of solar panel to the vehicle increases the distances the scooter is able to travel by 15-20% thus providing more efficiency gains,” said the company in a release. It has partnered with Sunon Energy of India and is also in active dialogues with the Digit Group of USA.
