Limo GT is a three-wheeled motorized vehicle commonly used as a taxi. It is propelled by an electric motor that is powered by a battery pack. The battery pack is charged through a solar array on the roof of the vehicle. The array acts as a supplementary power source, extending the range of the vehicle.  The battery system can also be recharged via connection to a conventional power grid.

It is distributed by Tuk Tuk Factory through a number of local distributors in different countries. The product is currently commercialized.
