Amritsar, August 19
Pollution-free environment experienced during the lockdown lead a city-based family to search for a battery operated vintage looking car.
Danish Talwar said his family had realised the dangerous levels of pollution, which were prevalent in the state before the lockdown.
Jasbir Singh Bhola, along with his welder Nishan Singh and his sons Jasjit Singh and Inderjeet Singh, assembled and fabricated the e-car for the Talwar family. It’s the third fabricated e-car, which rolled out of Bhola’s small automobile workshop. Earlier, he had fabricated a vintage car for BM Singh, who is a blood donor, and Tarn Taran-based commission agent. Bola said this e-car works on the same principle as that of e-rickshaw.
He said, “The entire body is fabricated with iron sheet. It has four batteries of 12 volts each. We fix the seats and use motorcycle’s tyres.”
He said, “Like e-rickshaw, it does not require any clearance from the Road Transport Authority.” The e-car drives at a speed of up to 70 km per hour to 80 km per hour with four persons. It takes around four to five hours to charge and can be driven for around 80 km.
The e-car also has a button, which puts the motor in reverse. The retro looking e-car costs around Rs1.50 lakh. — TNS
