T3 Motion GT3 three-wheel eletric vehicle revealed [Video]

T3 Motion has released some details pertaining to its two-passenger GT3 plug-in electric vehicle. The tri-wheel design features two front wheels and a single rear wheel with two separately integrated low rolling resistance tyres. Front suspension consists of a MacPherson strut layout. A multi-link dual-shock rear suspension system keeps things exciting as far as handling is concerned.

The front-wheel-drive GT3 has an overall length of 140 inches (355 cm), a width of 63 inches (160cm) and a standing height of 45 inches (114cm). Front track width is 55 inches (140cm), the wheelbase is 100 inches (254cm) and minimum ground clearance is 5 inches (12.7cm).

Power is supplied by lithium-polymer battery technology and goes to the AC induction motor sitting at the front. According to T3, the GT3 has a range of between 80 and 100 miles (129km - 161km) per charge. It has a top speed of 70mph (113km/h).

T3 will be selling the vehicle at between US$35,000 (€28,700) and US$42,000 (€34,500). Interestingly because of its 3-wheel design it is classified as a motorcycle.

Watch this very short video for an idea of what it looks like.

The range is allright I guess. How fast does it accelerate? If it's not fast, doesn't drive far, and has no top then how is this car usefull? You cannot rely on it to commute because what if it rains! I'm starting to see a trend here. It's starting to appear that all cars that carry the GT3 moniker are useless, "hey look at me" cars.

It is an electric car and generally electric motors can accelerate faster than gas motors. I have also seen pictures of this vehicle with a top on it before. So the rain wont be a big deal.
