Trikke Pon-e 48v Human/electric hybrid vehicle

Just to disclose, I am an employee of the Trikke company. That said, I am also an avid rider of both the strictly body powered line of vehicles, and the electric line of vehicles. I personally use one of the Trikke Pon-e 48v for my daily commute to work to save gas and reduce my carbon footprint. Simply said, I love, LOVE, my pon-e.

I snagged the specs from the trikke website:
– Foldable lightweight robust frame built with
aircraft grade aluminum AL6061
– Fully adjustable handlebars
– Dual disc brakes with parking lock
– Aluminum rims with Abec5 sealed bearings
10" front 9.5" rear, motorcycle grade tires
– slick aerodynamic design fairing,
UV resistant and impact absorbing ABS.
– 350W brushless free-wheel hub motor
(550W peak power)
– 48V-11.25Ah Panasonic lithium-ion quick-swap battery
– 46lbs with battery – 37lbs w/out battery
– 18mph (25km/h) max speed – motor only
– 24 miles (38km) range
– 3h recharge time (full)

* Suggested Weight Limit: 250 lbs
* Suggested Height Range: 5' to 6'3"
* Recommended Ages: 12+

I seriously recommend giving these a shot. You can use it for in-town commuting or small runs to the store, and it is a blast while you save your gas.

No sweat. The current state of the forum makes this easy to do. I unposted the duplicate.

Reviving this thread with updates as Trikke has moved into a higher end #LightEV niche. Note: l am not affiliated with the company, but I am an ardent supporter of their products. All eTrikkes fold up and allow battery pack removal and fold into a package that can fit two eTrikkes in the back of a small SUV such as a Chevy Bolt or Kia Niro EV/PHEV.

  • 2019 Trikke Pon-e 2WD was popular replacement for Segway Transporter in tours. Members of our TEVA of NC team have acquired two. These 2WD Trikkes have hub motors in each of the 2 rear wheels. The rider can still "carve" for exercise with the throttle available for the uphill or heavy traffic area.
  • 2019 Trikke Positron 60V Standard and 72V Elite AWD. These are a good bit heavier 3 wheel drive beasts with higher top speed (35mph+) and greater range.

Sorry to see Trikke leave the consumer sector for the special security transporter sector. This is an understandable move given the price pressure in the consumer space. Trikke products are high quality all around, and it shows in the riding experience!
