India’s ubiquitous three-wheeled Auto, the humble transport that’s become the international symbol of India across the globe, completes 60 years.
Let’s take a moment to celebrate the 60 years of your neighbourhood Auto/Rickshaw/tuk-tuk, shall we?
Of all the things that have changed over the last half century, the auto has remained pretty much the same. Sure, today’s autos look a little different than their forefathers. But at their core, they’re a refreshingly practical, ridiculously simple form of transportation on three wheels. It doesn’t get any simpler than that.
That’s not to say that all autos are alike, of course.
As you can see in our animated tribute, no two autos are ever the same – they come in every shape and size known to man. Colours, creeds, stickers, sayings. Each auto reflects its time in a way few things do.
60 years on, the advent of Ola Auto marks a bold new era for autos everywhere. Never before, for instance, has an auto been connected to an app of all things. One that allows you to book it in just a click.
Or to find all the autos in your neighbourhood, just by looking at a screen. Even better – you no longer have to go to an auto – this one comes right to your doorstep. Or street. Or landmark of your choosing – no questions asked. Which makes it an altogether better, more improved version of the ol’ Indian auto, we think you’ll agree.
And just what it needs to stick around for the next 60 years. Like we said before, the auto isn’t going anywhere – thanks to Ola Auto, it’s here to stay.
