Conventional Pakistani rickshaws get make-over, wifi

The campaign is yet to be officially launched

Web Desk April 09, 2015

KARACHI: The regular blue rickshaws we see on the streets are all set to be replaced by newly-designed rickshaws as part of a new marketing campaign.

The silver coloured, oval shaped vehicle is part of a marketing campaign by a Karachi based marketing agency Brand Activate for Ufone's new campaign.


The company is known for activating brand names through creative ideas.


Designed by an engineering company in Lahore, the rickshaws will include connections for wifi enabled services, as well as GPS navigation.


The campaign is yet to be officially launched with the exact features and functions of the new vehicle to be announced at the press event.

Twitter has seen a fair share of the newly designed vehicles.
