Naveen Rabelli, 35, set off from India in February and reached England five days later than expected because his passport and wallet were stolen in  France.

Rabelli was quoted saying: “The highlights have been the way people have helped me out along the way and supported me. People love the tuk-tuk, particularly in Iran and many other countries. They come forward and take selfies. And the moment I tell them it doesn’t require petrol, their minds are blown”.
His self-modified tuk-tuk is fitted with a bed, a seat for a co-passenger, a cupboard with food donated by people and a solar-powered cooker.
Rabelli commenced the journey to raise awareness of electric and solar-powered vehicles as a sustainable low-cost alternative mode of transport.

The idea of converting a fuel-based tuk-tuk to renewable energy came to him when he and a friend were stuck in traffic in India surrounded by noisy, polluting tuk-tuks.
He started his trip in India before his tuk-tuk was shipped to Bandar Abbas in Iran.
His overland mission then began in earnest; he drove through Iran, Turkey, Bulgaria, Serbia, Austria, Switzerland, Germany and France.
