Proud developer and manufacturer of the best electric Tuk Tuks. Three wheelers are lighter, more agile and especially suited for clean, fun and friendly transport. You name the job... We will showcase it here!
It was love at first sight. We were on a backpacking trip to Thailand. And when a tuktuk nearly drove us over, it knocked us off our feet. It’s friendly looks and bright colours made it irresistible to take a ride. And when we did, the deal was sealed. Head over heels.
A few years later opportunity came knocking. We decided to brighten up the dull grey streets of Holland with some of these babies. In 2006 we imported 50 tuktuks. It was a smash hit: we sold all of them in no time. Alas, we soon discovered that looks aren’t everything …
Soon, the number of mechanics equalled the number of Tuk Tuks. If this was going to be a long term relationship, we thought, we’ve got to keep what’s great and improve the rest. Good looks aside, they were also polluting, loud, expensive and frankly: not too well built. So in 2007 the idea was born: why don't we make Tuk Tuks that are clean, premium, low maintenance and have smart automotive solutions like part numbers and type approvals and stuff ? If it works for Mercedes, it might work for us!
We assembled an A-team of engineers and simply retrofitted the gasoline Tuks. Bad move. We learned that a small battery wouldn’t crack it. Back to the drawing board. Literally. We needed to think different.
While everybody was thinking lightweight electric vehicles, we took the opposite approach: a battery of over 400kg that could transport over 6 passengers. To achieve our goals, we knew we had to make a product that would sell itself. And the only way to do that was to make sure it would actually make our customers money on the streets.
In 2008 TukTuk Factory was born. A brand new company that set out to make the world a bit more fun, friendly and colorful. And by friendly we mean sustainable. And by sustainable we mean electric. Now look at us. We’re selling our unique e-Tuks all over the world. Entrepreneurs from Portugal through New-Zealand instantly see their potential. They connect to our mission and vision. They recognise themselves in it.
They fall in love. Just like we did so many years ago.
Since 2011 we produce our e-tuks in Thailand, home of the tuktuk. With our dedicated production team we put the heart in our fun vehicles. As a responsible company with a family feeling we focus on each member's personal growth, as well as team spirit. As a proud result, we are growing our production numbers rapidly -even doubling- every year.
