240v tuk tuks? - sweeper driver - 01-21-2006 08:00 AM

Is there such an animal as an [i]electric[/i] powered tuk tuk? It would be great for transport to and from work, as I only travel 18 miles a day.

I know that at one point we were looking at some electric scooters but Mike will be able to tell you more about electric tuk-tuks. One of the difficulties posed however, in my own personal experience of electric-powered vehicles, is that of battery degradation over time, and the other of course is charging (though the vehicles I was using could be charged on the mains). I'll drop Mike an email to get him to give you a more useful response though.
