When I was in India in March I admired the autorickshaws, to the point that when I returned home I observed to some co-workers that if I could import one to the U.S. and make it street legal, I would. One of them called my bluff by informing me that someone already does. And that there’s a local dealer.
It doesn’t appear that they import the diesel version, which is too bad, because a biodiesel version of this would be even cooler. I would love to drive my kids to school in one of these and spew a load of french fry-scented exhaust into the cockpits of my neighbors’ SUVs and vans at the drop-off.
