 With the electric launch of the iconic horse-driven Victoria carriage, Maharashtra Tourism is set to return to the historic charm of Mumbai and serves as an addition to the historical treasures and rich heritage of the city.

On March 14, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray launched the electric Victoria carriage from his official residence, Varsha.

The Li-ion battery-operated 'Victoria 2.0' will be operating at less than 20 km/hour at the town's most renowned sites including the Indian Gateway, Marine Drive, and Nariman Point, in its new avatar capable of servicing six passengers with one driver. In the first phase, said Maharashtra Tourism.

These 12 red and dark e-carriages are also equipped with a dynamic software GPS Intelligent Proximity Triggering that triggers your multi-language commentary on the museums, historical and cultural sites following the press release, precisely at the right location.

“We are encouraging e-wallet payments through all popular e-wallet platforms. As for the bookings, we are also tying up with multiple platforms such as Khaki Tours, Bookmyshow, and our own Facebook and Instagram pages,” said Ketan Kadam, founder, and CEO of UBO Ridez.

The GPS audio tours will be carried out from 4 pm to 2 am by Ubo Ridez, the private transportation company.
