New Delhi : In India, electric vehicles are being promoted under green mobility to reduce air pollution caused by vehicles running on petrol and diesel. Luxury electric SUVs (Sports Utility Vehicles), premium cars, electric bikes, electric scooters, electric three wheelers, buses and electric trucks are also being introduced in the market by vehicle manufacturing companies and startups. Along with this, due to high mileage at low cost and being equipped with advanced features, the demand for these electric vehicles is also increasing rapidly in India. Till now, companies providing auto, cab and bike rider services have also started using electric vehicles rapidly. In this sequence, there is also news that to compete with Ola and Uber, a company that provides taxi cabs and bike ride services in India, a bike-taxi startup has also started preparing to expand by entering the cab market. .
Ola-Uber’s dominance in cab market will end
Till now Rapido was providing only bike or auto service in different cities of India, but now this company is going to bring car cab service also. At present, Ola-Uber rule this market, but people have to wait for a long time for their taxis and bikes. In such a situation, Rapido is being seen as an alternative to end the dominance and lateness of these two companies. Rapido is more likely to benefit from the shortcomings of Ola and Uber.
