A Sudanese entrepreneur, Mohamed Samir successfully introduces eco-friendly rickshaws to the city of Khartoum.
Electric Rickshaws In Sudan!
Mohamed Samir, a Sudanese entrepreneur, has recently worked in developing the game and taking it to the next level with his electrically-powered rickshaws in Sudan.
Known for being one of the most common uses of transport across Sudan, rickshaws have been a reliable go-to source, but with the rising costs of fuel, they’ve become harder to maintain and have posed as a challenge for those driving them for their livelihoods.
Meet Mohamed Samir, a Sudanese entrepreneur and owner of a factory that assembles electric #tuk-tuk or rickshaws. With soaring fuel prices, tuk-tuk drivers in Khartoum barely make any money. With #electric vehicles, they can make a living again.https://t.co/0qWTffXTrK#sudan pic.twitter.com/clvA86ZFKt

This Solution Is Environmentally Friendly AND Cost-Efficient!
Mohamed has been diligent with his work, and has continued to address the many issues that pushed rickshaw drivers out of business – by installing solar panels on the upper over-head of the rickshaw, the vehicle was able to be battery operated.
With a large concentration of the traditional rickshaw in the city, it has been detrimental to the environment. But with this fascinating design? Mohamed was able to hit it all!
