Page 17. Triporteurs in India

India manufactures and uses more triporteurs than anywhere else in the World. In its heirarchy of traffic, until recently three-wheeled commercial vehicles outnumbered 4-wheelers. No 3-wheelers are used for pleasure – all triporteurs are used commercially.

This includes the ‘tempo’ and ‘bajaj’ (generic terms for any 3-wheel transporter), the ‘auto’ (or autorickshaw taxi triporteur), and a variety of pedal-assisted triporteurs, cycle-rickshaws and handcarts.
