The electric multi-rider passenger vehicle can easily move through crowded places and busy cities.
Anand Mahindra, known for his witty and insightful posts, shared another gem that reflects the idea that ‘innovation is the mother of all inventions’.
He took to Twitter to share a clip of an electric multi-rider passenger vehicle that can move smoothly in crowded places and busy cities. Mahindra wrote, “With only small design inputs, this device could find global application. As a tour ‘bus’ in congested European tourist centres? I’m always open to rural transport innovations.” where necessity is the mother of invention.”
It is a good idea for closed loops like zoos, parks and corp campuses but will not be suitable for normal traffic because, 1.turning radius, 2.centrifugal balance while turning, 3.suspension on uneven roads, 4.no luggage Space for, 5. Battery capacity at high load, pointed out a follower.
Turning radius – can be overcome by breaking the straight shaft with 3 smaller interconnected shafts, with some sideways movement. Like a toy train, another suggested.
Yeah I think it’s around 30k considering the size and looks but if he managed to get a second hand item or salvaged here and there it might be doable. Another follower said that if we deduct the labor cost and the item purchased is at a cheaper rate, it may be possible around 15k.
With just small design inputs, (cylindrical sections for the chassis @BosePratap ?) this device could find global application. As a tour ‘bus’ in crowded European tourist centres? I’m always impressed by rural transport innovations, where necessity is the mother of invention. pic.twitter.com/yoibxXa8mx— anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) December 1, 2022
