Venture One: Tilting Trike

Is there something in the water?  I’m wondering why because after decades of draught we now have several new and discount propecia online cool 3 wheel designs?  (Link, Link, Link)  Not since Buckminster Fuller designed his Dymaxion Car has there been so much interest in three wheel transport. 

The VentureOne tandem tilt tricycle is a sleek design that keeps the center of gravity safely on the inside of a turn by a patented tilting mechanism.  The VentureOne owes much to an earlier prototype called the “Carver” which is a clunkier design but shows the potential of a tilting 3 wheeler.  (Check out this fantastic video

The VentureOne as currently designed comes with either a hybrid drivetrain or as an all electric vehicle. The Hybrid propulsion system consists of a small internal combustion engine connected to a generator.  Electricity powers two in-wheel 25 kW electric motors.  Energy storage is provided for by a four gallon fuel tank and a 3 kWh Li-Ion battery pack. The system uses “regenerative” braking where wheel motors become generators and pump energy back into the dose cialis batteries.

The VentureOne's electric propulsion system has two in-wheel 20 kW electric motors, and a 17 kWh Li-Ion battery pack. Like the Hybrid system the electric Venture is able to return energy lost due to braking to the battery.

Powered by either its hybrid or all-electric drivetrain, and combined with its low weight, the VentureOne is extremely energy-efficient, has low or no emissions, and provides a practical and economical alternative to other low-emission concepts. Moreover, it looks like a lot of fun to drive.

The manufacturer, Venture Vehicles states that all three models will exceed 100 mpg in fuel efficiency, and achieve speeds of over 100mph.

No... there's no in-wheel electric motors. That design element has been changed.
