We have heard the famous saying that “Necessity is the mother of Invention”, and here is the implementation of it in the real world.
This unique electric cycle has been developed with a fingerprint sensor for ignition and a range of 60 km. The new electric powered vehicles are fast getting popular in India and they seem to be getting better with every passing day. Much of this is thanks to geniuses like Samrat Nath, who hails from a small village in Assam and recently approached us with details of an electric cycle designed in-house. The highlights of this EV is that it comes with many modern features and amenities despite being built with a strict budget without any external financial aid. Let us check out the specifications and details of this unique handmade e-bike.

Electric Cycle with Fingerprint Sensor and Range of 60 km
Samrat demonstrates the working of this e-cycle using his smartphone. He had been working on this for a long time as it was his passion project and it was a one-man show. The bike looks fairly basic but has plenty of functional and practical bits. Without a large reserve of financial aid, not much work had been done to the exterior and appearance aspect. He had tried to incorporate utilitarian features like a fingerprint starting system to prevent the stealing of the bike which is a common issue, a GPS tracking system to know the exact location of the bike at a point in time, an anti-theft system that will send notifications to the owner, internet connection facility, and much more.
Samrat also mentions that the battery takes around 3-4 hours to get fully charged and offers a range of around 60 km. With a few improvements, this range could also be extended quite significantly. The cost of this bike is a mere Rs 25,000 and he has been using it personally for quite some time now. He wishes to commercialise it for which he requires financing to design a much more sophisticated version of this electric bicycle. What is even more interesting is the fact that Samrat is not an engineer and this is a result of an innovator inside of him.

It must be commended, the dedication and handwork Samrat has put into this affordable and sustainable solution while encouraging people to buy electrified mobility solutions. With adequate and suitable investors and support from the big companies or government, this could certainly become a viable solution to tackle the astronomical fuel prices and increasingly stringent becoming emission regulations.
