China Odyssey

Beijing


Motor Tricycle


Although cars have taken over the main thoroughfares of Beijing, there are still many motor tricycles (such as this one), e-bikes, scooters and bicycles. Such vehicles are much more practical than cars in the narrow streets of the hutongs and are manufactured by Chinese companies such as Pomo and Huajun Motor Tricycle Manufacturing. The unbelievable capacity of these (and other vehicles on China's roads) is documented in an article from the Daily Mail Online entitled Danger, VERY wide loads: Chinese drivers push their vehicles to the limit with hilariously huge cargoes.
