From Streamlined Hubless Rickshaws to Electrickshaws

 - Jun 7, 2012
If you want to see the evolution of the rickshaw, then look no further than these rocking rickshaw creations. The rickshaw has come a long way since its inception as a people-powered people mover. Modern rickshaws are no longer powered by strong legs, being moved instead by electricity, gasoline and the occasional text message.

While many forms of transportation succumbed to the rise of the automobile, the rickshaw has been able to adapt and survive. Today, these rocking rickshaw creations can be found moving millions of people a day around some of the most crowded streets in the world. The most exciting thing about all of the rickshaws featured here is that many of them are still concepts, meaning that the best is still yet to come.
