Topic Off-Vespa: E3 means Electric Tricycle!

December 28, 2008

e3-tricycleHere in the Philippines, a tricycle is a mini-taxi / public utility vehicle (PUV) assembled with a motorcycle and a roofed, all-steel sidecar. But like our iconic jeepney, there are mounting concerns about it’s environmental and economic viability considering the constantly rising fuel prices, toxic emissions,  and the overall livelihood sustainability of the drivers and operators.  Local government started addressing the problem last year when Electric Jeepneys started plying Makati roads.  Recently, Taguig City joined in when it started to roll-out electric tricycles!  COOL! 8)

These electric trikes  (E3 for short)  are supplied by Electric Vehicle Solutions Inc. (EVSI), a company specializing in eco-friendly, viable, and sustainable electric vehicles for a variety of purposes.  When used as public transport conveyances, the power requirement for our vehicles is minimal compared to the exorbitant use of fuels by vehicles currently in use. The minimal power cost ensures that PUV drivers earn more, giving them a chance for a better life.

Among the other products they offer are the electric scooter/motorbikes and electric bicycles.  For the E3s, the came up with five models/prototypes.  There’s even a detailed FAQ about the E3.

To know more about this new electric transport, here are a couple of articles:

    how long it takes to order the E3 trike? And is it okay to ship it in the province? Just need the info about this technology, especially the warranty and maintenance. I hope the power will be adjusted at least 50km/hr. Thank you for the green power technology
