Plickshaw / Plastic rickshaw

Plickshaw
Plickshaw

This is a cycle rickshaw made in plastic which will be very light weight and so would cause very less fatigue to the driver. This is designed in Indian context. Many of the times the rickshaw drivers in India sleep inside their rickshaws and so a bed has been accomodated in this new design. The arm rest opens to form a 6 feet bed. The sitting arrangement has been looked into a new way as to facilitate better interaction between the passengers in the Love sitting position. The luggage space is increased and the boarding height is very low so as to facilitate Ingress and egress. Space for advertisement is also provided.
