There’s nothing quite like sitting for hours every day in traffic-congested streets to make you want to get away in a pollution-free vehicle. That’s exactly what happened to Naveen Rabelli
, an electrical engineer from Bangalore
, India who got tired of dealing with the polluting three-wheeled tuk tuks on the streets of his city – so he decided to build an electric one that runs on solar power, and he's planning to drive all the way to London! The New York Times
reports that Rabelli, 33 plans to drive his custom-built solar-powered tuk tuk
from Bangalore to London in an effort to show how a small team without much in the way of resources can make a long journey using clean energy.
