From Electric Commuter Rickshaws to Urbanized Transport Pods

 - Jun 25, 2013
While passenger carriages on the street are often regarded as slightly dangerous or flimsy to sit in, these magnificently modernized rickshaws are bringing these traditional carts back into the 21st century.

Rickshaws are the types of transport carriages used in the past when automobiles had yet to be invented. Comprised of a seating area that is then pulled forward by one person, these old school transport carriages are still often used in some parts of rural Asia as a technique to get around town. These modernized versions however, have transformed these simple carts into powerfully compact vehicles, providing a much sleeker and visually impressive way to travel around.

From sustainable city cabs to suped-up solar carts, these modernized rickshaws are allowing a whole new generation of individuals the opportunity to experience these unique transport vehicles.
