Dutch-based company Tuk Tuk Factory creates a mobile catering food truck that runs solely on electricity called 'E-Tuk Vendo.' The three-wheeled car is more common in India and Asia where taxis and food vendors ride in rickshaw-style autos.

The E-Tuk Vendo is crafted with a pull out table and opening window that act as a vendor designed specifically for food service. It can run up to 60 kilometers for every charge and is powerful enough to sustain an onboard refrigerator. It's designed to be plugged into an outlet at every stop, absorbing energy to power the sink, fridge, water pumps and electrical outlets.

There's three cubic meters of service space with a canopy top and pull-out countertop. It cost 24,000 euros and is equipped with a solar roof and rain shield.
