This latest version of Ecotrike incorporates regenerative braking. This improvement was developed in collaboration with a student design team from the Department of Mechanical Engineering of the University of Utah.
The cost of a commercialized (mass produced) version of the vehicle is targeted at under $8000. This small 400 pound vehicle uses only 1/3 of a parking space. It can be tilted on its rear for easy access to wheels and brakes.
It is envisioned that a modest home solar system will be sufficient to keep the vehicle’s 5 kilowatt-hour Lithium batteries charged. This eliminates the need to burn fossil fuels for everyday travel such as for work, recreation and shopping. Solar energy feeding of the efficient 8 horses stuffed into the electric hub motors of this vehicle is leading to a healthier and sustainable future.
