2013 Vectrix ES-3

Posted on by  

This fancy looking three wheeler is in fact a pretty interesting vehicle. Due to its configuration, it can be compared to a Segway trike, because it comes with standing stance. Its technological architecture consists of dual rear-wheel hub motors and an electronic differential which helps you move with agility even in the tightest spots. Moreover, you also get a reverse gear which further enhances the maneuverability.

The electric motors are powered by a set of 1.0 KWh Lithium (Interchangeable) batteries which offer a riding range of 24 miles (per battery) and can be fully charged in 3-4 hours. Like you’ve probably expected the Vectrix ES-3 is far from being a speed demon and its motors can send you to a modest maximum speed of only 25mph (40 km/h).

The stopping power is assured by front and rear hydraulic disc brakes.
