Solar-powered tuk-tuk reaches UK after road trip from India

Solar-powered tuk-tuk reaches UK after road trip from India

An engineer and his solar-powered tuk-tuk have arrived in Britain at the end of a seven-month, 6,200-mile overland adventure – despite a last-minute mishap.

Naveen Rabelli, 35, who set off from India in February, reached Dover five days later than expected because of the theft of his passport and wallet in France.

After obtaining an emergency passport and crossing the Channel from Calais, Rabelli said of his epic journey: “It was fantastic up until I got to Paris where from there I got some things stolen and two battery packs died.

“The highlights have been the way people have helped me out along the way and supported me. People love the tuk-tuk, particularly in Iran and many other countries. They come forward and take selfies. And the moment I tell them it doesn’t require petrol, their minds are blown.”
