IKEA's First Store In India Is Using Solar-Powered Rickshaws

By Marissa Higgins

If you're a fan of affordable furniture and home decor, you're probably familiar with IKEA. But IKEA offers more than just great deals on bed frames. In fact, their store model is surprisingly eco-friendly. Most recently, their first store in India opened with the news that they will deliver goods on solar-powered, electric rickshaws

This IKEA store is located in Hyderbad, a southern city in Indian. The rickshaws will be charged using 4,00 solar panels that are installed on the building's roof. 

These rickshaws will make up about 20 percent of the store's delivery operations. Along with being eco-friendly, there's hope that they'll be smooth in navigating local traffic. In terms of appearance, they're pretty fun, covered in bright prints.
