During the World Travel Awards Asia & Australasia on October 1, the new e-Tuk was unveiled to the masses. Already used around the world, the upgraded version of the three-wheeled rickshaw will now be employed at The Palm Resort & Spa in Dubai as transportation around the property in place of the typical golf cart. Dutch company Tuk Tuk Factory will be delivering the full fleet of electric vehicles to The Palm within the next couple weeks including the e-Tuk Limo for up to six passengers, and the e-Tuk Vendo & Cargo to be used by the housekeeping and kitchen staff. While originally built for conventional street use, their versatility and eco-friendly appeal has quickly gained interest from the luxury hotel industry and are expected to be a fixture at various resorts worldwide.
