The social media users are going gaga over a vehicle that was spotted in the thick of Mumbai traffic. While some termed it as a real-life Batmobile, others termed it as a sophisticated e-rickshaw. But what is this? This is the Lynx Lean Electric three-wheeler.

On social media, there’s a video going around of a really cool vehicle spotted on the busy roads in Worli, Mumbai. It’s not your usual auto-rickshaw, and it caught the attention of people at a traffic signal. The three-wheeled vehicle looks amazing, and everyone who saw it couldn’t help but say ‘Woah’ because of how cool it looks.

Lots of people shared the video online, trying to figure out what kind of vehicle it was. One person, in particular, said it’s a Lynx Lean Electric, a special three-wheeler made by a Danish company called Lynx Cars.

They shared the video with a message that says, “People are guessing about the vehicle driven in Mumbai. Here’s everything I could find about it. This is the Lynx Lean Electric, a two-seater, three-wheeled tilting vehicle by Lynx Cars, a Danish company. Priced at €35,000, or Rs 31,00,000, plus import costs.”

The Lynx Lean Electric offers impressive performance features. It can reach a top speed of 169 km/h and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 7 seconds. With a maximal tilt angle of 45 degrees and a maximal tilt speed of 85°/sec, it ensures a thrilling driving experience.

The turning circle, from curb to curb, is only 9.5 meters, providing excellent manoeuvrability. The electric vehicle is powered by a 12 kWh Lithium Manganese battery pack, boasting a cycle life of 80% of the original capacity after 2000 full cycles. The battery warranty covers 80% of the original capacity after 300,000 km or 5 years.

The motor has a rated (nominal) power of 40 kW, with a maximum power of 75 kW peak and a maximal torque of 100 Nm. In ECO mode, using the 12 kWh battery pack only, it can cover a driving distance of 150 km, while in SPEED mode, it can go up to 100 km. The vehicle also comes with various customization options, including a full leather interior, metallic exterior paint, special exterior colours, a rear spoiler, different wheel packs, and technological features like a radio/CD/MP3 player with USB and Bluetooth connection, DVC mode selector, HUD display (extra), and more.

Right now, there are two levels of taxes on imported electric cars. If a car costs less than $40,000 (around Rs 30 lakh), the tax is 60%. But for cars that cost more than $40,000, the tax is higher at 100%. The government is thinking about making a change. They might lower the tax for cars under $40,000 to 40%, and for cars over $40,000, they might reduce the tax to 60%.

On the official website of the vehicle, we could see that the pre-orders are open. However, we could not find any launch information. The vehicle spotted in India does not have a registration plate. We are not sure if this is a pre-production model or a knockoff of the original product that is yet to be shipped.
