T3 Motion Debuts GT3 3-Wheel, Four-Tire EV

T3 Motion, Inc. has unveiled the GT3 plug-in electric vehicle. The proprietary rear-wheel design of the GT3 features a single, wide-stance wheel with two high-performance tires sharing one wheel. The two-tire design improves traction, stability and handling, while the low rolling resistance and rounded profile of the rear tires increase energy efficiency, according to the company.

The EV features a multi-link, dual-shock rear suspension. Due to its three-wheeled design, the GT3 is classified as a motorcycle.

The two-passenger GT3 is driven by an AC induction motor powered by an 18 kWh lithium-polymer pack. Top speed is 70 mph (113 km/h) and the expected range per charge is 80-100 miles. GT3 will be priced between $35,000 and $42,000.

T3 Motion currently offers the T3 Series electric standup vehicle and CT Micro Car. (Earlier post.)



Body extra..


Now if these had been available 2 years ago, how many would they have sold by now?


Awful gizmo!


Hopefully all 4 wheels and tires are of same size.
I was wondering why these 3 wheelers, having a significantly wider tire in the rear, do not use two smaller tires/wheels in the back, like rear wheels on trucks, so a single spare can replace any wheel.

I see your point but most motorcycles do not carry a spare anyway. Looking at the photo, the front tyres are low profile and not compatible with the rear tyres.
