Pedal and solar Ambulance: clean energy for african transportation

What about a pedal ambulance? And what about an hybrid vehicle that could be used in tandem? This is the idea of Benoît Angibaud, a designer that address his effort to create an ambulance for the africans rural areas, where it’s not so easy to refuel a motorized vehicle. The Jaambaaro is literally a pedal-car with a stretcher, driven by two persons pedaling and assisted by electrical power generated from solar energy. Made of salvaged materials, and will hopefully fuel the local economy through localized manufacturing, thus making this vehicle not only sustainable but also fun for the kids. Yaabaadaabaadooo!
