In 1971, the Government of Maharashtra proposed a new urban township of Mumbai to tackle problems such as congestion, crowding and environmental degradation in the city. As a result of this, a public sector undertaking named City Industrial Development Corp. ( CIDCO ) was administered to plan and develop the new city, Navi Mumbai.
The city is well known for its peaceful life, less congestion and open air spaces. To further improve the quality of living, CIDCO has strategically planned a transportation infrastructure consisting of an automobile friendly network of wide roads, flyovers and skywalks, which makes the future of transportation in Navi Mumbai quite promising.
For public transport in any city, the general public face difficulty due to crowded modes of transportation, high number of halts between the start point to the final destination, longer distances and discomfort during commute. These are a few other reasons why a huge opportunity lies in Navi Mumbai for electric cycles and scooters. Cycles require very little investment on the part of the user but are suitable only for short distances. Whereas, electric scooters are a better and safer alternative for daily commuting in and around the city.
Moreover, the railway station in Navi Mumbai has ample parking space to accommodate private two-wheeler vehicles. As there are no specific cycle stands at such stations, electric scooters are comparatively a much safer option for those who’d like to take the train to work occasionally. A chain of air-conditioned buses also drop passengers off at the station, although their fares are higher and aren’t feasible for the average Navi-Mumbai resident.
Factors like these are why automobile brands such as BGauss are choosing to manufacture vehicles that are sustainable, affordable, user friendly and reliable.
Some key reasons why electric scooters are the future of Navi Mumbai:
Environmentally friendly: Since electric scooters are entirely battery operated, they are not only economical but also help people reduce their carbon footprint. Both BGauss B8 and A2 come with rechargeable batteries that can cover a considerable amount of distance in a single charge. This reduces fuel dependency, thereby reducing harmful gas emissions released by fuels. What better way to preserve the greenery around you than to switch to affordable, sustainable alternatives.
Budget-friendly option: If you own a fuel-powered vehicle and don’t have another mode of transportation, no one understands the pain more than you do. The rise in the prices of petrol and diesel has been a source of anxiety for everyone. When it comes to electric automobiles, they save you time as well as money. Rather than paying for gas, you may simply charge your electric vehicle’s battery. Comparatively, e-scooters are quite simple to repair and far less expensive than taking your automobile to a local technician. That being said, while the manufacturing and battery cost of BGauss is comparatively lower than other electric scooters in
the market, the brand does not compromise on the quality of manufacturing and final output of the e-scooters.
Hassle-free commute: People in Navi Mumbai prefer a less crowded and peaceful lifestyle. Both BGauss A2 and B8 are two-wheeled electric scooters that are easier to ride through hurdles and reach your desired destination on time, thus providing a noiseless, hassle-free experience.
Protection against theft: You can conveniently park your BGauss e-scooters at your workplace or at the railway station. Both BGauss B8 and A2 come with features like anti-theft motor locking and anti-theft alarm that alert the users in case of any suspicious activity. Moreover, you can stay informed about BGauss’s whereabouts at all times with its Find Your Scooter Feature.
Suitable for weather conditions: All electric components of BGauss B8 and A2 are IP67 rated which make it suitable for riding in extreme weather conditions such as rains, upto 120 mm for 30 minutes. For extra added precaution during monsoon, you can place your belongings in a waterproof backpack or zip-lock bag and place it in BGauss’s spacious boot space, where such belongings can be safely packed and shielded from exterior elements.
Suitable for everyday use: BGauss is lightweight, fun and easy to ride in and around the city. You can commute to work or college with BGauss B8 and A2. In case you leave the house in a hurry, you can conveniently charge your phone using BGauss’s USB charging port too.
