Just a little research on global warming will inform anyone that we are way beyond the point from which a slow and controlled approach will save the planet. We’re too late for that and drastic steps are now needed, not just from industries, but also from individuals. At Kabira Mobility, we believe in providing ample solutions in the e-biking space, allowing the environmentally conscious to embrace the RideToLiv approach. By taking this route, not only can you actively contribute to making your environment a better place, but also spread awareness about the same. Here is why your next bike should be electric.
Regular vehicles are huge contributors to the rising air pollution levels in our cities. That’s mainly because of the harmful carbon and nitrous oxides that are emitted from their exhausts after the burning of petrol or diesel. Since e-bikes run on batteries, they don’t have any fossil fuels to burn, and no harmful gases to emit. If more and more electric vehicles start hitting the roads, air pollution levels are definitely bound to go down.
Low running costs
In multiple states, petrol prices recently crossed the Rs. 100 mark. At these rates, the running costs of petrol vehicles can reach up to Rs. 9 per km. Compared to that, the cost of EV charging based on current electricity prices around India is just Re. 1 per km. This makes it clear that the running costs of e-bikes are much lower than those of conventional vehicles.
E-bikes, or EVs in general, utilize much fewer parts compared to regular vehicles. Furthermore, there is no oil to change, and no engine to manage as well. This significantly reduces their maintenance costs. And this also contributes to the long-term benefits of owning an e-bike.
When a bike runs out of petrol, you have no other option than to take it to the petrol station. As opposed to that, an e-bike can be charged right at your home. No waiting in line, no digging your wallet for cash, and no waiting for the attendant to swipe your card. Plus, you can also take advantage of charging stations spread throughout your city.
Under Section 80EEB of the Income Tax Act, anyone can get a tax benefit of up to Rs 1.5 lakh for interest paid towards a loan taken to purchase an electric vehicle. This applies to both electric bikes and cars. Moreover, the Indian government has already moved the GST Council to lower the Goods and Services Tax on EVs from 12 percent to 5 percent, so there are further hopes in this department as well.
As you can see, there are plenty of reasons to take the electric route when buying your next bike. The various e-bikes that we offer at Kabira Mobility can help you take advantage of all those benefits, while also making a positive contribution to the environment and seizing the RideToLiv opportunity.
