Three-Wheeled Electric Taxis

The 'Lindo' May Be a More Eco-Friendly Taxi Option for City Dwellers

— June 16, 2015 — Eco
Kyle Armstrong recently developed a design for a new kind of eco-friendly taxi, which draws inspiration from the three-wheeled auto rickshaws of Africa and Asia. The design student came up with the idea for the 'Lindo' after observing the congestion and pollution that plagued his hometown of Melbourne, Australia. Amstrong explains that the new electric taxis would operate as a sustainable alternative to full-sized taxis and Uber cars.

The Lindo would be designed similarly to existing three-wheeled taxis, which are often called tuk-tuks or auto rickshaws. The difference is that the Lindo would be lightweight and powered by electricity, thereby significantly reducing urban emissions. The Lindo would also boast a modern design, with a sleek motorcycle-inspired body. The new eco-friendly taxi is designed to appeal to urban consumers who are looking for a more sustainable way of navigating city traffic.
