Hase Klimax: These e-trikes offer partial weather protection with the included fairing (can be removed). Currently Hase offers their Klimax 2K series e-trikes with the Shimano Steps mid drive and their Klimax speed trike (up to 45 km/h or 28 mph) with a front hub motor.
RideKick: This is a trailer that literally pushes your bike or trike! It can also carry some cargo.
RoadRACE Power Pod: This is not exactly an electric trailer but it functions in a similar way by pushing the bike.
A Look at the Future
The following are a few designs to give you a look at what the future may hold for e-trikes.
ECO FUV: From the designer “A bicycle as we know it needs to offer other benefits to becoming a complete and ideal urban vehicle. In the FUV project was intended to complete this idea, functional and technological additions to the bicycle a more viable alternatives to travel the city looking after the environment.”
E-Trike: Concept e-trike from industrial designer, George Cooper. “My initial research showed that a new form of human powered vehicle could be designed to encourage more people to cycle. This would benefit the rider’s health and financial situation while at the same time improving the environment by reducing pollution and the consumption of finite resources.”
Toyota i-ROAD: Okay, there is no pedaling option for this electric trike but it is an interesting look at the future of e-mobility that is happening now.
