A modern-looking and environmentally-friendly version of the “”tuk tuk”” three-wheeler vehicle will hit the streets next year.

The new “”Chaiyo”” tuk tuk is made of fibreglass and powered by a 150cc four-stroke engine that gives it a top speed of 60 kilometres per hour. The government hopes the vehicle, which was developed and manufactured in Thailand, will replace older model two-stroke tuk tuks which belch exhaust fumes into crowded city streets. “”This tuk tuk will have very few pollution problems and we have developed it to European standards,”” said an official at the Thai Automotive Institute ‘s research and development department. “”If there are no problems, by early next year the first Chaiyo Tuk Tuks will hit the road,”” he told AFP.
