Between the noise and the pollution of two-stroke engines, the Solar Mototaxi is a great improvement. This green Mototaxi runs around the streets of Lima, Peru soaking up the 350 days of sun a year.

A professor at the University of San Marcos has designed this solar-paneled vehicle that can run on pedal-power or a battery hooked up to the solar panels. The Solar Mototaxi is the perfect city transportation, and this could be a sign of what is to come in eco-transportation.
