The three-wheeled colorful auto-rickshaws called “tuk-tuks” are a popular mode of public transportation in many Southeast Asian countries. They are prized for their practicality and economy in countries including Thailand, Indonesia, Cambodia, and Laos.
However, these three-wheelers usually run on fossil fuels, which contribute to air pollution in the region. According to the World Health Organization, Southeast Asia’s air pollution burden is among the highest in the world.
