The Rs150 lakh Ashok Leyland joke called “Circuit”

150 lakh Ashok Leyland joke called Circuit… don’t know if they pulled the name right out of Munnabhai MBBS movie.

The things people do in the name of Electric vehicles, clean and green energy. Just like Kodak tried to stay in the game by meddling in copy machines Ashok Leyland tried to jump the curve by buying a electric bus company called Optare in the UK.

Any Indian company that invest in Europe has seen red… even if they are the top companies in the world. Be it Suzlon… be it Tata Motors… be it Tata Steel… be it Amtek Auto… all have seen losses and had to sell those investments… not because of economics but because of “gamesmanship” which is a new word for cheating.

Why would Indian company buy UK technology and try to sell it in India??!!?? Make the bus and try to sell in UK… they bloody well cannot do it so try the govt to buy their stuff…

If you are still gaging for the numbers its almost identical to what one hears about li-ion vehicles 120kms range, 3 hrs charging time 75kmph top speed. The bus can carry about 30 (sitting) to 60 passengers.

The bus will cost between 1.5 Crore to 3.5 Crore…

All I have to say is give one finger salute… _l_ for the visionaries and the makers of this vehicle.

But you dont see any action on the ground. You dont see any company coming forward to create electric cars, nor do you see the government placing any orders for Electric Bus or Cars.

Gadkari’s “pilot project” on 15 year old Technology.

One fine day Mr Gadkari, Indian Transport minister woke up from his slumber in August 2015 and decided that running electric buses would be cost effective and set about with the Indian Space Research Organization to deploy 15 buses on a pilot project. Possibly he believes that electric vehicles are rocket science and after the Agni Missile Programme, Moon Mission, Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV) , Mars Orbiter Mission the mission of making an electric Bus for the people of India should be the next biggest task assigned to India’s biggest Organization.

Now a Pilot project is a small scale preliminary study conducted in order to evaluate feasibility, time, cost, adverse events, and statistical variability in an attempt to study the design and its function prior to implementation of the Technology.

The problem is that the technology in question is 15 years old and…
