Hi Gary, that is a very nice project, have you thought about a 2 seater version? just wonder if you thought about supplying the powerplant to other manufactures interested in using your technology ? I'm sure a few might be interested.

Cheers

I'm not convinced of the rear wheel steering syctem, but the Toyota I-Road is continuing it's development all the way to production.

Hi Italo and thanks for the interest.

Up till now I've not really been interested in doing a 2 seater version as personally I have yet to see a modern design which looks any good. I'm not ruling it out but the concept for the vehicle you see is very much a single seater. There's nothing hugely novel about the drivetrain and if it were to go into production a lot would be done differently but if you are interested in doing something, please PM me and we can talk.

This was conceived as a very lightweight EV trike, designed to exploit the L-class regulations and offer a really economical commuter style vehicle that also gives a very fun, pure driving experience. Unfortunately this thread proves that the demand for 3 wheelers is restricted to a few unhinged individuals and most people simply can't get past the fact that it's missing a wheel. The next step is to take the general architecture, add the "missing" wheel and turn it into a light weight EV (or hybrid) "sports" car. (Even if that concept will struggle to find acceptance for on here) wink

I'm aware af the L-Class regulations in EU and think that there is a potential for a new niche in EU, if things move forward towards Urban Electric or Neigborhood Vehicles or Quadricycles with limitations....

I like the idea of a lightweight Single Seater Vehicle and have worked on a few, but yours seems quite ready to me, to accept any body style, being that you have a monocoque chassis that would accept different styles and shapes.

I was thinking two seaters, because in mainland Europe, the niche market would be the older crowd,, maybe with licence limitations or other...

I like 4wheelers and a lightweight EV sportscar might be the perfect evolution, but I'm sure other options might work.

Cheers
Italo

The steering system is fine as long as the speeds are low. Problems would arise in high speed emergency swerving. See this as a forerunner of a self driving urban taxi replacement in the next decade or so.

The Peel P50, often comes back in mind, when I think about frugal Urban Mobility for the 21st century, apart from the micro wheels and a few other things, the concept still makes a lot of sense.

Great to see your enthusiasm remains tremendous, Fuoriserie! Interesting projects well worth seeing.

Time will tell whether these hit the spot!

Merry Chrstmas to you! Good to see that your enthusiasm is undimmed which is just as it should be!

I intend to be building yet more kit car projects next year I will update you in early Jan. Should include at least three kit cars and at least two classics a Frog Eye and a 54 Wolseley both in dire need of rebuilds.

Got to get all my projects OTR Tempus Fugit!

Merry Chistmas to you and a Very Happy New Year!

Thank You Steffan....smile

Hopefully, 2016 we will be an interesting year for threewheelers and I'm looking forward to seeing them all at the various shows:

Stuart of MEV is working on a new 2016 tR1ke Mk II:

On PH, I noticed the Trikolak and I'm sure others are working on new projects...

I'm trying my best to show something in 2016 and will see if I'm lucky this year.
Looking forward to your kitcar updates and projects as they look very interesting.

Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Italo

The Teilhol Citadine was an electric threewheeler in the 70's.

Possibly. There again possibly not.

Kit car magazines seek methods of attracting attention. Personally while I welcome all kit car ideas and enthusiasm for every possible reappraisal, the regeneration of the Peel clones has been mooted previously more than once. Unless there serious effort behind this froth I rather doubt the reality of such a project.

As yet I have enjoyied all manner of kit cars for over 50 years and no one has yet equalled the efforts of Lawrie Bond with his Berkeley three wheelers back in in the 1950's. He really has remained on his own as a volume producer. Never equalled, as yet never bettered. That would seem a far more worthwhile regeneration but sadly I supect even that is unlikely.

Post IVA kit cars are a much more demanding hobby. I am all for progress but I cannot see Peel copies returning. One make rebodies seems to me to be the real future as evidenced by the prodigious output of MEV and others in th field.

Having said that best of luck to the Peel emulators and I hope they succeed. But as I said above, it does seem unlikely to me.
