How Switching to Electric Tempo Saves on Running Costs

How Switching to Electric Tempo Saves on Running Costs

Switching to electric vehicles is no longer just a trend, it's a smart financial decision for many businesses and individuals. Electric three wheeler, including electric loaders and electric cargo vehicles, offer significant savings on running costs compared to their petrol and diesel counterparts. In this blog, we will explore how switching to an electric tempo can reduce your expenses and why Altigreen’s electric vehicles are the best choice for maximizing these savings.

Understanding the Electric Tempo

Electric tempos, often referred to as electric three wheelers are vehicles powered by rechargeable batteries. They are designed to carry passengers or goods and are particularly popular in urban areas due to their efficiency and environmental benefits.

Types of Electric Tempos

1. Passenger Electric Three Wheelers: These are used for transporting passengers within cities and outskirts.

2. Electric Loaders: Designed for carrying heavy loads, ideal for industrial and commercial applications use.

3. Electric Cargo Vehicles: These vehicles are used for transporting goods, making them perfect for delivery services and logistics companies, particularly used in last mile mobility segments.

Major Running Costs of Traditional Vehicles

Before diving into the savings, it's essential to understand the major running costs associated with traditional petrol or diesel vehicles:

1. Fuel Costs: Regular refuelling with petrol or diesel vehicles costs ₹4 per km.

2. Maintenance Costs: Frequent servicing, oil changes, and part replacements.

3. Repairs: Breakdown repairs can be expensive and frequent due to the complex mechanics of internal combustion engines.

4. Emissions Taxes: In some areas, there are additional costs associated with emissions and environmental impact.

How Altigreen Electric Tempos Save on Running Costs

1. Lower Fuel Costs

Altigreen Electric vehicles run on electricity only, which is significantly cheaper than petrol or diesel. The cost per kilometre for an Altigreen electric three wheeler is ₹0.92 paisa per km which is much lower compared to traditional vehicles cost of ₹4 per km. Charging an electric tempo is far more economical than filling up a tank with fuel, leading to substantial savings over time.

For example, the cost to fully charge an electric loader can be a fraction of the cost to fill up a diesel loader. Over thousands of kilometres, this difference adds up to significant savings.

2. Reduced Maintenance Costs

Altigreen Electric vehicles have fewer moving parts compared to traditional internal combustion engine vehicles. This simplicity leads to lower maintenance costs. There’s no need for oil changes, spark plugs, or complex exhaust systems. The primary maintenance tasks for electric tempos are related to the battery and electric motor, which are generally more reliable and have fewer issues.

3. Lower Repair Costs

Due to the simpler mechanics of electric vehicles, repair costs are generally lower. Traditional vehicles have many parts that can wear out or break down, leading to expensive repairs. Electric three wheelers, like those from Altigreen, are designed with durability in mind, reducing the frequency and cost of repairs.

4. No Emissions Taxes

Electric vehicles produce zero emissions, which means they are not subject to emissions taxes or penalties that are increasingly being imposed in many cities to combat pollution. This can save you a significant amount of money, especially if you operate in urban areas with strict emissions regulations.

5. Government Incentives

The Indian government offers various subsidies such as EMPS and incentives for electric vehicle buyers. These incentives can significantly reduce the upfront cost of purchasing an electric three wheeler, making it an even more attractive option. Additionally, lower registration fees and taxes for electric vehicles can further reduce running costs.
