Autos and Evolution

Autos and Evolution

Auto rickshaws, known as 'tuk-tuks' in Egypt, originated in Japan and are common in many Asian countries. Each country has its own version of these vehicles.

In India, there were initially hand-pulled rickshaws which later evolved into auto rickshaws.

Nowadays, auto rickshaws are widespread. There's a shift towards e-rickshaws, which are slowly replacing traditional ones. However, their increasing numbers have become bothersome. E-autos are becoming prevalent on the streets, and it's likely that they'll soon dominate the market.

Despite their convenience, auto drivers often drive recklessly.

Auto engines have evolved similarly to car engines. Initially, they used basic combustion engines, and their efficiency has improved over time. According to some information I found on Quora:

"Bajaj has been using a 165cc 2-stroke engine for years, along with a 4+1 speed sequential gearbox. They still sell this model. They also have a 4-stroke engine with 198cc available in LPG, CNG, and a diesel version with a 435cc engine.

Other companies like Mahindra use a 345cc Lombardini engine with a 4+1 constant mesh wet clutch gearbox. TVS uses their own in-house two-stroke and four-stroke engines."

All vehicles undergo similar improvements because the principles behind them are the same. Enhancements that make truck engines powerful also apply to auto engines. The difference often lies in size due to the nature of large-scale manufacturing processes.

I cannot comment more on autos cause of my limited knowledge on combustion engine, manufacturing ideology and not having eidetic memory.
