About Prakriti:

Prakriti has been established with a goal to start a global revolution in the industry of commercially used electric vehicles (EVs). Though, initiating in India, we thrive to expand our services globally in a bid to combat climate change and reduce the carbon footprint while enhancing the user experience for our customers. Our unique app-based taxi service will not only get customers from Point A to Point B but will also contribute for the greater good of the planet. This app will allow users to book cabs that are all electric. As a result, their journey will give off no emissions and will help reduce the carbon footprint one journey at a time. We have also worked on the shortcomings of other cab services to optimize the user experience for customers. Some of our key features include:

  • Zero Surge Charge: No amount of traffic or demand will bring about a change in the cost of the journey. As a result, customers can book cabs without worrying about absurd prices.
  • Zero Cancellations: Our driver can’t cancel the trip and only our customers have the ability to cancel their trip.
  • Zero Emissions: As our fleet is all electric, there will be no emissions in their lifespan. As a result, cities will eventually be able to breathe easy without worrying about toxic fumes from exhaust pipes.
