Fuel costs are going up and the air pollution is on a constant rise. One ideal solution to solve these problems altogether is to design vehicles that do not rely on hydrocarbons or other non-renewable and polluting fuels. Trikes could be quite the hero in such situations, making the best out of available resources. Take a look at some designs that propose a greener alternative for your commute:
