Bagh Eco Motors is bringing completely eco-friendly three-wheeler vehicles to Bangladesh. These cars are being made in the country. These vehicles will use the electric battery. However, there will be no batteries made of acid that is harmful to the environment. Combining solar and lithium batteries, the eco-friendly vehicle has been named 'Bagh.'
Bagh Eco Motors has not just taken such an initiative out of business thinking. Their purpose is not just to do business. Moreover, they are working for the country, the environment, and the people. Here is what we know about electric three-wheelers in Bangladesh.
What is an Electric Three-Wheeler?
An electric three-wheeler is a light electric vehicle. An electric three-wheeler is a battery-powered vehicle with three wheels. It is a low-speed vehicle and does not require a license to operate. Electric three-wheelers are increasingly becoming popular in many countries as they are an eco-friendly and economical mode of transportation.
Electric three-wheelers are available in a variety of styles and sizes. Some are designed for carrying cargo, while others are meant for passenger transportation. They typically have a range of 20-30 miles on a single charge (however, it depends on the battery) and can reach speeds of up to 30 mph.
How Does It Work?
A rechargeable battery powers the engine, and the driver can charge the battery with a standard outlet or via a solar panel on the rooftop or trunk. When you are ready to ride, you press a button to kick off, then coast as far as you like. A braking system keeps you from sliding into things. If you want to turn left or right, just move the steering, and your vehicle will head in the direction you want.
Advantages of Electric Three-Wheeler over Regular Three-Wheeler Vehicles
Electric three-wheelers are different from regular ones in many aspects. In the following part of this article, we will be discussing some of the advantages of electric three-wheelers.
These are just a few things to keep in mind when considering buying a new vehicle or planning on expanding your fleet.
Cost of Ownership
Like anything else, vehicles are subjected to wear and tear. A regular three-wheeler has a higher cost of ownership as it needs to be sent for repairs more often. On the other hand, electric 3 wheelers are much younger in their existence and have fewer moving parts compared to regular three-wheelers.
Electric vehicles are usually seen to be sustainable because they are powered by electricity, a clean energy source. Besides that, these vehicles have been proven to have less impact on the environment than conventional three-wheelers. Since their power consumption levels are much lower and hence generate less emissions.
The lower maintenance and lower cost of ownership of electric three-wheelers mean that they are naturally more fuel-efficient than regular three-wheelers. As an effect, the fuel efficiency goes up, and so does their running cost.
Electric three-wheelers are also more efficient in maintaining a quieter running noise level compared to regular 3 wheelers. The electric 3 wheelers are even more appealing as they can be fitted with a small motor that is as quiet as a regular scooter. The reduction in the noise level means that it will not disturb anyone and is friendly to both the rider and the people around them.
Electric three-wheelers are designed to have stable and steady handling due to their low center of gravity. The center of gravity is the point where the vehicle stands or, rather, from which the entire vehicle can be balanced vertically. Because of this, electric three-wheelers also require a lower turning radius than four-wheeled vehicles, so they can navigate through little streets easily.
Low Maintenance Costs
The maintenance costs of electric three-wheelers are less than regular three-wheelers because they don't require frequent lubrication or maintenance as well as oil changes every month. The maintenance costs for electric three-wheelers are usually limited to replacing the tires and the brakes every once in a while.
When and who will bring Electric Three-Wheeler to Bangladesh?
Bagh Eco Motors is going to introduce a Bangladeshi-made electric three-wheeler vehicle. The vehicle is expected to be launched in April 2022. The parent company, Royal Bengal Battery, started its journey in 2013 by manufacturing sealed, maintenance-free VRLA gel batteries at Tongi TSS Complex. Now they are focusing on an eco-friendly three-wheeler.
Expected features of Electric Three-Wheeler in Bangladesh
Bagh two-wheeler motorbikes and auto rickshaws are the most modern, comfortable, and eco-friendly vehicles in terms of models and overall aspects of the present time.
The main feature of this vehicle is that it can be tracked from any place at any time with the help of the Internet of Things (IoT).
The three-wheelers will run on a combination of lithium batteries and solar. Lithium batteries work 30% better than acid batteries. Also, these are one-third the weight of an acid battery and charge at least 3 hours faster than an acid battery. This battery does not contain lead acid, so pollution will not occur. Royal charging stations have been set up in different parts of the country to facilitate easy charging.
Besides, the three-wheelers will have a WiFi facility through Robi. There will also be a TV.
The vehicles can run at maximum 45 km/hr and mileage per full charge is 90km.
The three-wheelers are insured by the South Asia Insurance Company. As a result, the passengers of the three-wheeler will get compensation in case of death or damage due to an accident.
The electric three-wheelers from Bagh Eco Motors are ready to hit the road before Eid-ul-Fitr in April 2022. In addition, the country-made 'Bagh' four-wheeler cars, buses, and even double-decker buses will be made by 'Bagh Eco Motors.' An agreement has already been reached with foreign companies to manufacture these vehicles jointly.
