From Rickshaw to Smart Car

Jinrikisha is a Japanese word meaning jin (man) plus, riki (power) plus, sha (carriage).

The carriage top left is pulled by one or two people on foot .

The three wheeled rickshaw top right is also called a trishaw or a pedicab.

The motorized/power rickshaw below left  is basically an auto rickshaw, or tuk-tuk.

The smart car below right is the ultimate powered rickshaw.
