Ecofriendly e-rickshaws to ply on Pune roads
Along similar lines, cities including Pune have started promotion of electric vehicles. Recently, Pune city announced that ecofriendly e-rickshaws will be plying on various routes throughout the city. However, it is found that the awareness regarding the benefits of electric vehicles among people is very low.
Thus, this event has been conceptualized to spread awareness by taking out a rally where over 30 e scooters, e motorcycle, e autos, e cars and e bus from various manufacturers will move through popular route in the city. An effort will be made to involve general public and youth in the event by 50 volunteers from Pune Green Champions who will perform interesting skits, and run a slogan contest called “The future is electric because…”. All participating in the contest will be given designer caps as gifts that say “I am a Green Champion”.
The rally will originate at 9 am at Pune University, GaneshKhind Road, and move through the city including special stops at BMCC College and Fergusson College.
