Given the rise in pollution levels on highways around the world, there has been a lot of interest generated by vehicles powered by renewable sources that also produce less toxic gasses from their exhaust pipes. Taking advantage of the new trends, industrial designers have come up with electric concept vehicles that cater to just about any job out there, from garbage trucks to electric motorcycles.

Designer Hazman Malik has just revealed his new concept vehicle that can be used as a zero emission taxi. Called the Green Cab, it looks like a combination between a rickshaw and a go-cart. The vehicle has not been designed to provide a luxurious ride, but meets the demands of a simple tourist vehicle.

Thanks to its open-air configuration and skylight roofing, passengers will be able to enjoy the sites, while riding in this total silence. The idea looks perfect for a busy tourist destination like London or Paris, where congestion and pollution is a big problem.

The concept features seating for three people, two passengers and the driver. The driver sits in a centrally mounted seat and controls the futuristic craft using a couple of joysticks. The battery that propels the vehicle is stored in the rear compartment of the vehicle. A solar panel, placed on the roof, provides a constant charge to the battery during daytime. There is also a kinetic energy generator which produces energy when the vehicle is braking. The designer hasn’t provided any technical specifications or performance numbers, but considering the lightweight construction we expect to see some decent figures.
