e-Trike - new degree of urban mobility



Elevator Pitch

e-Trike – ultra-light transforming electric car that allows to move around modern megalopolis regardless of traffic and parking issues. Unlike Segway our product gives consumer the degree of comfort and safety like in full-sized car.

In unfolded mode it is safe and stable like ordinary car and drives at 80 kmph max on car roads. But if you faced traffic jam or need to park in narrow space - your press one button and in 5 seconds it becomes 1.5 times shorter, can overcome high borders and road kerbs and travel across pedestrian zones with speed limitation of 10 kmph as well as park on a square less than 1,5 m2.

Our eTrike is a gadget on wheels. It has joystick instead of steering wheel and tablet PC instead of control panel, providing access to the Internet, navigation, audio/video, and other cool features.

Prototype is ready and being evaluated. Road safety certifications pending. Seeking for round A investment.

In 2012 our team of 6 completed other EV project (EV utility vehicles) from idea, prototype, production to sales and made 8 sales so far.

Product

Our eTrike is a solution for three main problems of large cities all over the world: traffic jams, lack of parking space and increasing price of gas. This electric vehicle has futuristic design with transformer capability - the distance between the front and rear wheels can be changed dynamically. In unfolded position it can use common roads along with ordinary cars with speed up to 80 kmph and once folded it will drive on pedestrian zone (sideways) along with pedestrians with speed up to 10 kmph.

This way it becomes the first bi-modal vehicle which can feel comfortable within both car and pedestrian zones and switch between them within several seconds while making its road through the complex urban environment. Its construction allows easily overcoming different obstacles like high road kerbs and outdoors walkways, even entering large buildings.

eTrike doesn’t have steering wheel, it is controlled by joystick. eTrike will become not only a way of transportation, but the first “gadget on wheels”. All control panel functions (indication of speed, climate and audio control, navigation) are performed with tablet PC which is essential part of eTrike. It also gives an access to the social network designed especially for eTrike owners and allows remote control via smartphone. The tablet PC can be easily unplugged when driver leaves eTrike.

Environmental and energy problems are emerging so many of the developed countries are investing in the development of electric vehicles. Electric vehicles market grows by more than 30% per year. It is predicted that this year about 1.5 million electric vehicles will be sold, and in 2015 this number will hit 5 million. By 2017, the electric vehicles market will grow by about 7 times and reach $227 billion.

Advantages over competition: a small amount of space taken up on the road, safety for the environment, extremely easy parking, solution for traffic jams, low price and mileage charge, improved maneuverability, easy operation due to joystick, integration with digital environment, coexistence in car and pedestrian environments, social interaction functions, good potential to become an object of fetish.

Target groups: existing car owners (as second or third car in the family), young people, businessmen. In the nearest future the target audience can be widened by all people who dream about low-cost and comfortable transportation in complex urban environment.

Agreement with major Russian distributor of electric vehicles – Ekomotors - is signed.
