To date, we dedicated 18 e-cycles and we received a private donation for another 17 e-cycles for KIM, for a total of 35 e-cycles.
How does KIM work?
Aurovilians can become members of KIM by contributing a reasonable Rs.850/month to the scheme. In exchange for this contribution, Kinisi provides members with:
- a completely equipped e-cycle for personal use. This includes the battery, battery charger, battery controller, number lock, front and rear lights, mudguards, front basket or saddlebag.
- a free monthly check-up and maintenance session, free spare parts and full battery replacement when necessary (usually 3-5 years, depending on usage);
- maintenance tips on how to take good care of the e-cycle and battery.
Due to the success of this KIM scheme, we aim to increase to 50 the number of e-cycles available to Aurovilians before February 28, 2019.
In order to attain this goal, we need help to purchase another 15 e-cycles. We hope that you will appreciate this initiative and will feel moved to help it along with a donation (even a small one will be helpful) to support sustainable mobility for all in Auroville.
