Earlier, Anand Mahindra, the chairman of Mahindra Group, shared a video about an innovative invention. The industrialist shared a clip of an electric multi-rider passenger vehicle which is suitable for crowded places. The six-seater cycle auto-rickshaw was created by a young man from rural India.
While sharing a demonstrative video of the India-made vehicle, Mahindra wrote on Tuesday, "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."
