Countering climate change is the need of the hour. The concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere is at a record high and it continues to rise. While emissions saw a slight decline during the pandemic, they are on their way back to pre-pandemic levels. According to a United Nations report, the world is set to see its warmest five years on record, and this trend is likely to continue in the future. There’s a lot of work that remains to be done to reach our goal of keeping the global temperature increase below 2°C or at 1.5°C. We need rapid and impactful changes in tandem with economic or industrial development. This makes sustainable infrastructure crucial.
The primary reason why electric vehicles (EVs) are projected as the mode of transport for the future is their potential to save the environment. When EVs become more common, air pollution caused by two-wheelers are expected to decrease significantly. But this will only be possible if there is large-scale adoption of EVs, for which, there are a few barriers along the road. The most common one is high prices. While this is true to some extent, EVs cover up their extra cost very early in their lifecycles and can hence contribute to significant savings in the long run.
The Earth needs saving and it’s high time we get serious about that. The effects of global warming have become apparent already and are affecting our daily lives. According to NASA, 2016 and 2020 were the warmest years on record, as the global average temperature was 1.02°C warmer than the baseline 1951-1980 mean. Extreme events like cyclones, draughts, and forest fires are becoming more frequent. Polar ice in the Arctic and Antarctic regions is melting, and could cause severe flooding events in the near future. While all this is happening, most of us are making small changes to our lives like using organic products and recyclable goods, but the fact that our vehicles are still actively polluting the environment can be hard to live with. EVs can be the most practical solution to this problem.
At Kabira Mobility, our objective is to offer eco-friendly solutions. This belief is part of our RideToLiv philosophy, which is the driving force behind the development of all our e-bikes. We are environmentally conscious and offer products that are emission-free and technologically advanced. We have designed our portfolio to meet the e-biking needs of a wide range of customers that include college students, office-goers, hardcore biking enthusiasts, and fleet users.
Manufacturing accounts for nearly 17% of India’s GDP and provides millions with employment in the country. This sector is connected in many ways to several other industries, helping India thrive as an economy. However, one of the biggest issues that the sector has had to deal with is its contribution to industrial pollution and environmental degradation.
