Tuk Tuk North America

News for US residents will be the announcement that the Tuk Tuk which is a common mode of transportation in countries like India, Thailand and Vietnam has been approved by both the Department of Transportation and the Environmental Protection Agency.

They are widely used as taxis as they will be able to weave through traffic without the slightest bit of hesitation, plus it gets you there on time as compared to its 4-wheeled counterpart. On my journey’s to India, I was first a bit hesitant about getting into such a fragile structure on 3-wheels, but because the drivers are quite experienced, you actually enjoy being weaved through heavy traffic, so much so that I used the rickshaw as my main mode of transport in my travels.

The models available will be the standard 3-seater, 6-seater, 12-seater, Dump Truck, garbage truck, and a Van to name a few. There is also an option to build your very own Tuk Tuk as an L5 driveaway and prices for that start at US$ 9650.00. All engines will be provided by Mitsubishi and are 650cc watercooled 4 stroke engines, that feature a four speed transmission and reverse. The Tuk Tuk is a good runabout solution which has excellent fuel efficiency that comes in about 55 miles per gallon.
