Hybrid Auto rickshaw

Was wondering what may really help the world. One idea found was a Hybrid Auto rickshaw.

Auto rickshaw is a very popular common man travel in India. I think its popular in all developing world where there is more man power available.

Looks its a very good use case for a Hybrid power train as

1) it has a lot of possibility for regenerative breaking as its runs more in city traffic and low speeds

2) An electric motor for low speeds can make the efficiency improvement

3) Most important : less pollution

4) Millage increase as ICE works more on optimized conditions

I am not sure why companies like bajaj is not considering a hybrid powertrain for an auto rickshaw
