Dutch-based company Tuk Tuk Factory (TTF) has now decided to bring electric tuk tuks to the European market with a green twist.
Since the gasoline based ones could stand up against the European environmental, quality or safety requirements, they decided to make an electronic one instead. The tuk tuks come with a 15kWh lead acid battery weighing 400 pounds has give an in-city mileage of 70 to 80 kilometers. The cost between $15,110 and $19,231, and will need a Class B driver’s license.
Business is booming for a Dutch company which is the first in the world to produce an electric version of the motorised rickshaw, or tuk tuk, that also meets EU safety rules.
