Solar e-rickshaw is a new means of transport and advanced technology that blends solar energy with mechanics. In simple words, a solar e-rickshaw is a three-wheeler powered by solar energy, suitable for short distances (Mulhall et al., 2010). Solar-powered e-rickshaws can support the daily operations of the drivers, helping them overcome range restrictions and make more money as they can avoid charge-wait periods during work hours. These solar e-rickshaws are also clean, environment friendly, sustainable energy. This study aimed to identify the lack of knowledge due to communication gaps in spreading awareness regarding advantages of solar e-rickshaw, which has led to less usage of e-solar rickshaws that has the potential to enhance the performance and energy efficiency for achieving environmentally sustainable transportation. This study is with special reference to Gurugram city in India. The methodology used for this study is in-depth interviews using semi-structured questionnaire and purposive sampling. The outcome of the study indicates that measures are needed to communicate and educate the e-rickshaw drivers and owners on its solar version and its benefits, for the solar e-rickshaw to come to mass use and acceptance.
