LOOK: La Union’s “Kotse-Kel”

Pinoys are undeniably creative. When a Filipino inventor creates something, he attempts to make it  multi-purpose, unique, and leaves a trademark reminiscent of our culture.

Take for the example the vehicle invention made by Lyndon Olba from Bangar, La Union which was featured by ABS-CBN’s Umagang Kay Ganda. For five months, Olba transformed an ordinary passenger tricycle into a “kotse-kel”. A hybrid of a typical car and a tricycle, the one-of-a-kind vehicle features a cooler and a compartment inside the “car portion”. It can accommodate two passengers inside.

According to Olba, the “kotse-kel” is intended for public use and not for public transportation. It is priced at P60,000.

In his interview with Umagang Kay Ganda, the inventor of “kotse-kel said: “Balak lang namen single-seater lang siya na panghatid ng mga anak ko sa eskwela. Hanggang sa nagkaron kami ng idea na ‘ba’t hindi tayo gumawa ng mas kakaiba naman yung parang kotse.”

Check out the unique Pinoy invention called “kotse-kel”.
