At the Tokyo Motor Show, the innovative Japanese design firm, D-Art has introduced the all-electric three-wheeler called – “Style” – a sound method of urban transportation in congested areas.
The 30-kilogram Style costs approximately $6,500 and will run at 25 kilometers per hour for some 20 kilometers before charging is required.
The company has produced a limited edition tilting three wheeler named the Hagane a few years back – the Hagane used a proprietary D-Art two-wheeled front end on a Yamaha majesty scooter.
Elsewhere in the world of three-wheelers, gizmag reports more news:
“Yamaha showed a three-wheeler which will sit somewhere between electric wheelchairs and electric scooters and bicycles. Yamaha’s role in the shaping of the global EV market might yet be very significant.
“The company works closely with Toyota, which is the world’s largest automotive manufacturer and its electric scooters, bicycles and other small mobility devices look likely to supplement Toyota’s own efforts in micro-mobility such as the iReal, Winglet and its partner robots.”
Gizmag adds that two other electric three wheeler prototypes were announced at Tokyo, coming from start-up Kobot, a joint venture between one of Japan’s Kowa and Tmsuk.
These good tools will impact change in the urban environment.
