NID alumnus does 500-km ride to Manali-Leh highway on e-bike to popularise use of electric vehicles to cut carbon emissions

EVs are becoming the latest rage but there is a limit on how far you can go owing to battery capacity constraints. But not for the enthusiasts and adventurists, however. An alumnus of National Institute of Design (NID) rode an e-bike from Manali to Leh to test the boundaries of endurance of man and machine. The Manali-Leh highway is regarded as one of the toughest road routes in the world.
Abhishek Dwivedi, a 38-year-old social entrepreneur and an avid rider for decades, successfully finished his first 500 km ride in three days on an e-bike.
