KINISI - Sustainable Mobility for All


KINISI is a new unit dedicated to bringing e-mobility to Auroville. We are located at C.S.R., first floor to the left on the spiral staircase. You can call us at 97875 58837 or come 2:00 to 4:00 pm.

We offer several options for moving towards sustainable mobility:

Cycle conversion to turn your favorite cycle into an e-cycle, we install:

  • A very silent and strong 250W motor;
  • A powerful 480Wh removable Lithium-Ion battery that can be charged from any AC outlet in 2.5 hours from zero to full charge. The smart charger has overcharge and short-circuit protection, so you can recharge at any time, also when the battery is not empty. This battery is good for at least 1000 full charge cycles (3-4 years depending on use). Without pedaling, you get a range of 30 km, extended if you pedal at the same time. Maximum speed is 25 km/h;
  • A 5W very bright LED front light and back brake light;
  • A charge indicator and a horn.

Please come with your cycle, so that we can determine the possibilities according to your cycle's frame. A converted ecycle is available for testing on our premises. You can also buy a new normal cycle and we will electrify it for you.

Purchase of a ready-made e-cycle or e-scooter - We can help you choose the model of e-vehicle that fits your needs.

Buy-back options: We offer buy-back options on newly purchased e-scooters to long-term guests or volunteers who need e-mobility during their stay.


We look forward to seeing you at C.S.R.!
