T3 Motion’s R3 Electric Three Wheeler will be hitting the streets soon — and you can reserve yours today for just a $500 deposit. The R3’s ultramodern dashboard features a Galaxy Tab that digitally controls the vehicle. The two-seater is classified as a motorcycle and can hit a top speed of 70mph.
Appearing as a squished sports car, the R3 will run for 80 to 100 miles on one full charge. A lithium-polymer battery powers the AC induction motor, and the rear double-wheel provides better traction, stability and handling. Initially, T3 planned to have an iPad dash, but decided to go with the Samsung tablet (sorry Mac lovers).
The R3 doesn’t come cheap — at an estimated $25,000-$35,000, the $500 deposit is just a drop in the bucket. Interested buyers can pick one up in the next few months.
