Cuba promotes 'cocomovil' taxi in Brazil.
Last month, the unusual vehicle was featured at an exhibition in Brazil co-sponsored by the Federation of Industries of the State of Rio de Janeiro, the Brazilian-Cuban Chamber of Commerce and ALADI (the Latin American Integration Association).
The cocomovil--a cross between a motorcycle and a conventional car--is used as a taxi in Havana and Varadero. It can carry 3 passengers and travel 100 kms on 1.5 liters of gas. It is manufactured by Unecamoto, a Cuban state entity that has already begun exporting some units to Mexico.
