Safar Smart Highlights
The Kinetic Safar Smart is a three-wheeled electric passenger vehicle designed for last-mile mobility in urban and rural areas of India.
Featuring an attractive design and available in four colour options, this electric rickshaw can seat 4 passengers (though it can even seat 6 people, if needed). The seating arrangement offers ample legroom and headroom, and a durable roof material for protection from various weather conditions. The battery of the three-wheeler is placed under the passenger seat, away from external conditions like heat and rain for better safety.
Additionally, the Kinetic Safar Smart is offered with a 3-year warranty on the battery, ensuring peace-of-mind ownership. The vehicle itself is covered under a 3-year warranty providing additional assurance of its reliability. Currently, the Kinetic Safar Smart is available for purchase at a starting price of Rs. 1.45 lakh (price indicated is ex-showroom Delhi).
Kinetic Safar Smart: Battery Specs
The Kinetic Safar Smart is powered by a 1.2 kW BLDC motor, which draws its power from a 4 kWh lithium-ion battery that can be fully charged in just 2 hours. The battery offers a range of up to 100 km on a single charge, making it perfect for intra-city travel.
The company also offers an option to choose a 140Ah lead-acid battery pack, which is much cheaper in cost than the lithium-ion battery. However, it is unclear if the range and charging times in the lead acid battery pack version are lower than the lithium-ion battery.
Regardless, it is recommended to choose lithium-ion batteries since they ideally last 3-4 times longer than lead-acid batteries without losing their effectiveness over time.
