Description and History

The Amphibious Rickshaw (also called Amphibious Three-Wheeled Vehicle) is a wheeled land and water use automobile operated by the indigenous people of the Planet Zola. Despite the limited technology employed by the Zolans, the Amphibious Rickshaw is a robust vehicle capable of carrying roughly 8-9 people within the rear cargo bed and the cab can accomodate additional passengers. When operating in the water, the vehicle deploys propellers for propulsion and utilizes a rear-mounted rudder for maneuvering. The Amphibious Rickshaw has a maximum road speed of about 30 kilometers per hour (19 miles per hour). Nekki Basara travelled as a passenger in an amphibious rickshaw operated by Elma Hoyly when he visited the Planet Zola in 2047.
