How much is an electric bike worth ¥20,000? In a market where e-bike prices have almost doubled, a 20-year-old from Chatapur, Madhya Pradesh, has developed an e-bike that can compete with established brands in terms of performance and features. The e-bike developed by Aditya Shivhare is also capable of carrying loads of up to a quintallon. Electric bicycles can travel 30 kilometers on a single charge.
Aditya Shivhare developed the electric bicycle from scratch. It took him about a month to complete the project and finalize the e-bike. It’s far from a basic e-bike. Shivhare adds modern features such as accelerator, brakes, lights and horn. The e-bike also comes with a separate holder for mounting a smartphone for navigation and other purposes.
Shivhare’s e-bike has been the talk of the town since its launch. “Nowadays a poor person cannot afford a bicycle, and a bicycle costs thousands and lakhs of rupees, so I came up with an idea and I ended up preparing a bicycle that everyone can buy. If this is quoted by the ANI news agency, In the words of the 20-year-old: “Once the model is put on the market, it will bring about a revolution. The name of this electric bike model is A1. “
Shivhare was inspired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s encouragement for his early exploits. “I would like to say that before this, at the age of 16, I was ready for electricity without wires, which was appreciated not only in the state but also by our Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Till today , whatever I have learned in life, my source of inspiration is Thomas Alva Edison who invented the light bulb,” Shivhare added.
Aditya Shivhare now aims to seek help from the government to get his dream e-bike on the road and help others. “My dream is that the government should help so I can move forward with this project,” he said.
