Goodbye, nasty 'tuk-tuk'; hello, clean, green machine
Bob Eco eTricycle Is the Next Generation of Electric Tuk Tuk
Bob Eco is wining a big slice of Africa's tuk-tuk market, knowing battery-operated buggies will cut burgeoning city pollution.
Tuk Tuk is a unique traditional transportation that you can find in many Asian and African countries such as Thailand, Indonesia, Kenya, Uganda, Malawi etc, unfortunately, they also contribute to urban pollution and high fuel costs.
Bob Eco is replacing this vehicle with an electric version, it will reduce polluting vehicles on the streets. This eTuktuk features orange color scheme, modern and stylish version of the 'old' Tuk Tuk. It is powered by lithium-ion batteries which can travel 60 kilometre for every 1.5-hour charge. The overall dimension is just less than 3 metres long and steered with handlebars, well, just like the traditional one.
The first fleet of the new eTuktuk's is already on order for Africa, as part of a plan to replace 65,000 gas-powered tuk-tuks by 2025, with more efficient, cost-effective electric vehicles.
