"The proliferation of many EVs in #Jaipur inspired us to start our venture,"says Nikhil Gunda and Meher Sai, who have launched #GearHeadMotors (GHM) that builds low-cost e-bikes that can charge in 45 minutes. @ev_ghm

“We made our own detachable battery box made of aluminium alloy. It’s anodised, which acts as a cooling paint. In Indian temperatures, when the battery heats up, the battery box absorbs and transmits the heat outside.
Our 5.8 Ah battery charges from 0 to 80% in 45 minutes with our 6 A fast charger."

Today, the startup manufactures #ebikes with 80% of the components developed in-house and has sold more than 100 units while raising an amount of 1 crore at #SharkTankIndia.

#Thread about EV Bikes & why @ather is solid?

The biggest lesson that @OlaElectric taught to all aspirational startups is that if you wanna disrupt the market come with a solid foolproof product rather than dumping the garbage. ⬇️ (1/14)

It was in the year 2017 I read about a passionate product incubated in IIT Madras. A group of engineers trying to build a world-class eScooter naming the company Ather Energy. EVs are not new to South India. (2/14)
*Below image is the first newsletter I received from Ather
↗️Reva 1994 - a pioneer & first functional EV car started in #Bengaluru later sold to @MahindraRise
↗️@ampere_ev bikes started 2007 in #Coimbatore later invested by @RNTata2000 himself & now sold to Greaves.
They're way ahead of their time when India is not ready for EVs (3/14)

Meet the cycling Culcavy mum doing the school run on two wheels after ditching her car.

.@MargaretCan picks up the story 🚲🚲🚲

#climateni #cycling #onyourbike
.@divedivajade the acting manager of @ClimateNI, said she has cycled more than 4,000km with two kids on the back of her e-tandem. “That’s 4,000km of fuel for a car I didn’t need to buy”.

The Bermans now are a one car and biking family. "The kids love it too and wave at people as we pass."

💡🚲🧵 @ArlingtonVA @BikeArlington @USDOT. In May, I bought an #ebike. I named it #SlayerPete after our bike-loving Secretary of Transportation, @SecretaryPete. Image
I ride #SlayerPete to my office in DC, for errands, and, yes, for exercise. While #Arlington #Virginia has a great network of paths and trails, it still lacks the kind of secure bike storage/parking recently opened at the East Falls Church Metro @wmata. Image
In fact, safe/secure bike parking/storage is the biggest impediment to me using my #ebike even more.

It's tweetsorm time! @GovofCO released proposed budget for FY22-23 today - and it contains transformational investments to improve air quality and #ActOnClimate. $424 million to decrease pollution in transportation, industry, buildings, + $125 in related housing $. (1/n)
Transportation is our biggest source of pollution, so that's where the biggest investment goes: $255 million. Supports electric school buses, bikes, cleaner trucks, expanded transit service, and free bus/train fares during ozone season. (2/n)
$ 150 million for electric school buses to help school districts switch from dirty diesels. For many kids, being on and around the school bus is some of their highest exposure to pollution. Goal is to move towards every school bus replacement being electric. (3/n)

Dear @SenKennedy & @BillMagnarelli: Congratulations on becoming Chairs of your houses in the #NYSLegislature. Some thoughts to keep in mind when making policy. (cc @BikeNYBC @transalt @StreetsblogNYC @NYC_SafeStreets)

1) Transportation choices are shaped by public policy.
2) We need to give people safe, convenient transportation choices. Example, loads of people want to cycle places, but they're #2scared2bike.
3) Transportation is the #1 cause of injury death for kids and #2 for adults. But it doesn't have to be this way. Mortality rate in Netherlands is 1/4 of ours. That's because of good engineering (#VisionZero, transit, etc).

The western US has been on fire for weeks, with unbreathable air confining people to their homes and keeping some from getting out on a bike. In other parts of the world it’s straight-up car pollution doing the same. We’re going to CLEAR THE AIR with #bikeschool #bikes4climate.
We’re heading toward Global #ClimateAction Week so you’ll see that hashtag + #bikes4climate tonight along with #bikeschool.
My hot take: Too many discussions under headlines with words like #sustainability or #climate or #green ignore bikes as clean transport.
****Q1: How have forest fires, pollution, other air quality issues affected your bicycling? Fun fact (h/t @andrealearned): Bikes invented as tool due to volcano eruption pollution. See by @lloydalter. #bikeschool #bikes4climate #ClimateAction #bikehistory

Pilot in BC Canada: @velometro 3-wheeled enclosed #ebikes operating as shared vehicles. Think Car2Go+bike. Geofenced to keep off pedestrian walkways. #TRBAM
If @velometro classified as bikes they can be in bike lanes but you couldn't park these at a bike rack. Lots of policy issues to be worked through. #TRBAM #bikeshare (?)
Traffic operations questions created by low-power vehicles that aren't quite bikes. If they operate (maybe in general motor vehicle lanes) + you want smaller vehicles used for urban delivery + working for bike mode shift, what happens? #TRBAM #LEVs
