E-Rickshaws are popular and convenient mode of transportation for last mile connectivity and are typically used for short distance (<10 Km) commute. As per recent reports there are more than 1.5 million e-rickshaws plying on Indian roads and approx. 10,000 vehicles are adding every month. Owners of these vehicles are inclined towards the overall range these vehicles can give on a single charge. Range can be improved by using efficient powertrain. Range can also be improved by optimized Battery Management systems and Controllers. Though there are certain evaluation criteria (such as curtailed Indian Drive Cycles) which can be used for efficiency estimations, manufacturers are more interested in extending the range in real world scenarios. Hence, the availability of real-world drive cycle is imperative. Through this paper, we have attempted to derive a typical drive cycle by collecting road data of various types of e-Rickshaws under different environment conditions. The paper also attempted to present how these derived drive cycle can thus help in powertrain optimization and overall efficiency improvements.
