The engine-powered tricycle, populary known as 'Keke Napep' or 'Keke Marwa' has come to stay in Africa.More especially in Nigeria,as it's creating economic value and also one of the means of transportation.
Nigerians are widely known for their sense of creativity which they are always proud to put to display. And one of such display is the reinvention of the three-wheeled vehicle,Keke Napep.
Keke Napeps are now more and more popular for its economic value
Here on Naijauto.com, we've shared some stories of some Nigerians that have taken a shot to recreate Keke Napep.One of the news story was the all electric Keke spotted in Aba, made by Aba creatives.The tricycle is powered by electric and has no need for fuel.And it's carbon emission is zero.
Again, we saw the luxurious version of the tricycle as it has everything you can't find in the Keke you see or ride on every day.This luxury version has the looks of a mini SUV. It's built with doors, electric fan,a spare tire at the rear.You can say this tricycle has a promise of being a comfortable ride with these features. And with the rainy season approaching, the doors would shield passengers from getting drenched . You sure know tricycles are not great ride options during the rainy season.
Nigerians are now striving to produce Keke NAPEPs on their own
Also on the news is Nigeria producing the first made-in-Africa Keke Napep that's solar-powered.The tricycle was manufactured in a bid to reduce the dependence on gasoline as the major means of generating power and transportation.
We do hope these tricycles hit the market soon.
We've pieced these photos of made-in-Africa Keke Napep together so you can enjoy the creativity at work on them.Though some have an outlook that's unusual but that's what creativity is all about.Some have also been redesigned into a wedding chaffuer vehicle. However, the tricycle has been designed to look, it's still the Keke Napep we love hopping in and out from.
