These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

Electric three-wheelers, commonly known as e-rickshaws, have emerged as a convenient and eco-friendly mode of public transportation in India. These vehicles operate with the help of battery-based electric motors that reduce additional costs related to fuel consumption. Electric three-wheelers are primarily classified into passenger carriers and load carriers. The high adoption rate of these electric vehicles depends upon their zero carbon emissions, compact design, cost-effectiveness, and noise-free travel experience. In India, the rising concerns towards high vehicular pollution levels are currently driving the demand for electric three-wheelers.

The soaring prices of several transportation fuels, such as diesel, petrol, LPG, CNG, etc., have led to a rising inclination towards electric three-wheelers in the country. Furthermore, the growing number of initiatives and awareness programs by the Indian government to reduce GHG emissions from fuel-powered vehicles is also propelling the market growth. In addition to this, the government has also introduced numerous subsidies and financial aids on the purchase of electric three-wheeler vehicles, thereby further augmenting the market. Moreover, the rising investments in the upgradation of public charging infrastructures for electric three-wheelers are also driving the product demand in the country. Apart from this, several ridesharing companies in India are getting inclined towards electric three-wheelers for providing noise-free and ecologically-sustainable rides to their customers. Moreover, electric three-wheelers are increasingly being adopted by various courier companies for providing last-mile postal services and reducing carbon emissions at the same time. Numerous technological advancements have led to the integration of three-wheelers with GPS navigation, remote sensors, anti-theft locking systems, etc., which are further expected to drive the market growth in the coming years.
