Global Edition: Bajaj Tuk Tuk – Vuga District, Zanzibar (Tanzania)

January 7th, 2011 by Emir

Not quite a car, not a motorcycle, there are a lot of names for these three-wheeled, motorized rickshaws…tuk tuk, trishaw, rick, mototaxi, etc. No matter what you call it, one thing is for certain…they’re kinda funny looking. This one is made by a company called Bajaj, an India-based manufacturer of 2 and 3-wheelers sold in India, Indonesia and South America.

Good news for you Americans who find these things appealing. Somebody is actually giving North American distribution a shot. I can just picture it now…America’s newest taxi cab. Hey, its maneuverable, fuel efficient and they even have an EV version available. What more does Bloomberg need?

Would you ride through city streets in one of these things? Weigh in after the jump…
