The Taxi has been out and about lately, at Science Alive during National Science Week and then at the University of South Australia’s Open Day.
Thousands of children, many parents and at least one dinosaur climbed onto the Taxi to try it out.
This long weekend in Adelaide, the African Solar Taxi is on display at Womadelaide: an annual festival of international music and culture.
As the first time that the taxi has been properly on display after many months of design and construction, it’s worth reflecting on the African Solar Taxi project: why it was started, what it hopes to achieve and who is involved.
This evening we added some typical luggage to the taxi’s rear ute tray, including Funky the chicken.
With the chassis now painted a glamorous coat of orange it’s time to accessorise. With carpet, a swing arm, rear lights, ‘number plates’ and rear mudguards initially.
