Tuk Tuk electric trike aims to connect the city with its peripheries

Tuk-Tuk Concept

Automobiles, especially, cars have revolutionized the way we travel. But despite modernization in cars, dense cities find it complex to use cars in their urbanized landscapes because of environmental issues and gridlock. It is becoming practically impossible using car in such busy and urbanized cities. Though various alternative transportation systems have been used, they do not meet all the real needs of individuals traveling from one place to another. Therefore one of the best systems of transportation has been adopted in such cities to meet the individual needs keeping in mind the environmental as well as the social development issues.

The concept of easily accessible light rental vehicle, Tuk Tuk introduced by Audric Galzy, has helped a lot in facilitating urban travel. The basic motives are to connect the city with its peripheries and to provide transportation service to the travelers in an eco friendly and simple way. They are designed to be available at every important location of the city be it a railway station, an airport or a shopping network. One can ride them from any location of the city and park it in its place thus reducing conventional traffic.

Interested users can avail Tuk Tuk from any periphery to the center of the city and can reserve its time during a stop, or put it free for other travelers in the place where it is parked, thus making its rotation possible. The city promotes Tuk Tuk use by offering free public parking lots.

The structure of the Tuk Tuk has been created in a very advanced and technical way keeping in mind physical as well as economical aspects. Minimum material is used for its construction and its size has been kept small to suit human body structure. Both the sides are kept open to facilitate lightness and access at short distances. Simple and small structure helps in its maintenance and understanding. Tuk Tuk ensures safety, stability, and usability with its three wheels suspension system. It is powered with 15KW electric motor positioned near front wheel, which offers 100km range and 75kph performance to follow any kind of way to the city. The cockpit is pivoted on the swing arm through an ankle. The turning radius of the front wheel is minimized for safety purpose. The Tuk Tuk, a triple bond in ground not only makes traveling easy and safe but also saves city from pollution and traffic and preserves its beauty.
