4 reasons why Audi is building this electric tuk-tuk

Audi itself speaks of an e-rickshaw, but in our eyes it is an electric tuk-tuk. Whatever you call the zero-emission tricycle, the fact is that it gets its power from used battery modules of an Audi e-tron.

Why does a car brand like Audi build an electric tuk-tuk? Good question! We can think of four reasons:

1. Second life for electric car battery

Audi is looking for ways to give battery modules a second life after use in an electric car. It is not a problem for a tuk-tuk if part of the capacity is lost, because it does not need much. Just look at the 12 hp Opel Rocks-e (review): it achieves 75 kilometers from 5.5 kWh.

2. Helping women in India

Audi has developed the three electric rickshaws for India. In particular, to boost employment for women in India, they get the e-rickshaws to transport their goods to the market and back.

3. Train Audi employees

A team of Audi trainees worked on the electric tuk-tuks. Probably recent graduates who learned valuable things along with the seasoned bodybuilders, painters and IT specialists at Audi.

4. Stand out at the Greentech Festival in Berlin

Before the e-tuktuks go to India, Audi will steal the show during the Greentech Festival in Berlin. Visitors to the festival for green technologies and a sustainable future can take a test drive themselves. Then everyone sees how good and green Audi is doing.
