Tuk Tuk vehicles get EPA and DOT approval for the stateside

Tuk Tuk North America has announced that the company’s vehicles have been granted both DOT and EPA approval. Soon enough you’ll be seeing those Mitsubishi powered three-wheelers driving around town.

There are many different Tuk Tuk variants most of which are powered by a water-cooled 4 stroke 650cc engine. That helps the Tuk Tuks return an estimated 55 mpg.

Passenger vehicles include a 3-passenger, 6 passenger or a pickup truck model mated to a 4-speed manual. For commercial vehicles Tuk Tuk North America is offering a 12-passenger model, a dump truck, garbage truck, a flatbed, a utility and a van model.
