TRIAC – Three-Wheeled Electric Car

February 18th, 2010 by GreenDan Leave a reply »

Green Vehicles, a company that makes eco-friendly cars, recently presented its latest creation that aims at addressing the issue of the high prices for electric vehicles.

The company’s new three-wheeled car is called TRIAC and its price is $24,995. The most interesting thing about it is that because it has only one rear wheel, the car is lighter, less expensive and can be registered as a motorcycle too. However, those who look forward to drive the TRIAC will still have to have a regular Class C driver’s license.

The top speed of this eco-friendly vehicle is 80mph. The TRIAC can travel 100 miles on a single charge. The driver can recharge the TRIAC using the regular household outlet. It takes about 16 hours for the car to recharge using an 11-volt outlet and about 5 hours using the 220-volt outlet.
