Officials asserted that the electric rickshaws have the capability to travel up to 150 kilometers on a single charge. However, details regarding its price and availability have not been disclosed at this time.

Notably, recent amendments to the Motor Vehicles Rules 1969 by the caretaker government have granted legal recognition to the Qingqi rickshaw. This recognition allows the Qingqi rickshaw to be officially registered as a three-wheeler.
