All the way back in 1897, electric cars existed and found their first commercial use as taxis in Britain as well as the United States.

Over the years, its design has remained consistent, but Aldekas Studio had other things in mind for the iconic vehicle. How so? They used a fender as well as a few other parts from a VW Beetle to create ‘Bugkart Wasowski,’ or a small go-kart to be more specific.
