Designer Jacob Mazor has created an electric pedicab with a unique design. Mazor has switched things up here, putting the driver in front of the passengers. His design also includes a canopy to help stop the rain and the sun.

In addition to assisting the rider in pedaling, the pedicab's electric motor also helps with steering. Putting an electric motor in a bicycle taxi is a brilliant idea as it allows cabbies to get passengers where they're going faster. Expediting the pedaling process is sure to make passengers happy and allows the cabby to complete more fares per shift. If solar panels were to be fitted to the roof of Jacob Mazor's design, then it could theoretically run all day, weather permitting. Stats for Plug-In Pedal Cabs Trending: Older & Warm
