Vanderhall Edison 2, electric three-wheeler from America
The American company Vanderhall, manufacturer of two very attractive tricycles, expands its range by an all-electric model, called Edison 2 – a very well-chosen name – and in order to offer in the market of electric vehicles something very unique, a two-seater three-wheeler that guarantees great satisfaction in driving. But it is not unique, it will compete with the Morgan EV3, with similar connotations.
Vanderhall is a manufacturer from Utah, United States, which in 2016 presented its model Laguna, a open-air two-seater between a motorcycle, a go-kart and something that can not be described; very fast, very pleasant to drive, but with only a space for two people and little else. In other words, to go from one place to another it is worth, but not to travel.
And what else to prepare this model also with an electric motor! It’s obvious! And now a super-fast tricycle was born, “the quickest Vanderhall we have ever produced,” as Daniel Boyer points out. With two AC induction motors on the front wheels, which push the tricycle in just over four seconds from 0-100 km/h, with a top speed of 170 km/h. They reach a total of 180 HP of power, and a torque of 325 Nm. Its pack of 30 kWh lithium-ion batteries offer a range of about 300 kilometers per charge.
