Hanging out in Thailand for a couple of weeks, enjoying the Monsoon.

Randomly hailed a tuk-tuk last night and it turned out to be 100% electric.

It has li-ion batteries and around 100km of range. Which sounds fine for daily use.

Not sure if it has regen, but we should find out later today if the owner takes us to the mountains in it.

So if you’re visiting Chiang Mai in the near future look up Nui for first class transportation around town:

Well new for me then.

They certainly weren’t around when I grew up in India.

From what I remember of Bangkok they need a few thousand of these and a few million electric mopeds to make a start on their massive pollution problem.

New or not, it's the way to go!
