Pedal-Powered Ecocabs comes to Stockholm

Pedal-Powered Ecocabs comes to Stockholm

You might have seen these pedal-powered Ecocabs rolling around in cities like Toronto, Dublin and Berlin the past few years. And now these eco cabs can be seen in Stockholm, Sweden.

Stockholm's Ecocabs will be available from May through September each year and will costs you 40 Swedish Kronor (about $6.50) per 15 minutes.

The drivers of these ecocabs won't have to do all the pedalling for themselves. Each ecocab have a 12v self-charging battery-driven engine that helps the driver go up hills (and to run the indicator lights). The maximum speed is 25 kilometers per hour but the average speed is usually half of that.

Compared to ordinary cabs these ecocabs have to rely on advertisements to keep them rolling.

Compared to ordinary cabs these ecocabs have to rely heavily on advertisements to keep them rolling. That's why they are filled with advertisement, as you can see on the above picture.

Now we only need some pedal-powered delivering and transporting firms.

Anything to give people an option of green power in lieu of pollutive automobiles is a good thing. How are these ecocabs different from traditional pedicabs? I blogged about a local organization, Newburyport Pedicab, here.
