Developed and manufactured in the Netherlands for the European market, the Virto and Virto S stand-up electric tricycles have received European approval for use on public roads. Approval for North America is pending, the company said.
The Virto trikes are powered by a 48V, 10Ah Lithium Iron Phosphate (Ion) pack. The Virto and Virto S have a top speed set at 16 mph (25.7 km/h) and a driving range of up to 56 miles (90 km) each charge.
All the wheels have hydraulic brakes, giving the Virto a short braking distance. The Virto has a front fork with suspension and rear wheels with independent suspension.
