During the presentation of the three-wheeled motorcycle, Pascal Ranger, general manager of CTA said “We are very proud to be participating in the EVS29 symposium, one of the most renowned in the electric vehicles sector in order to present our ell-electric concept vehicle. The CTA is specialized in the electrification of vehicles, in mechatronics, in the development of lighter structures, in connectivity and sound management. Our predictive approach reduces costs and the length of development for our clients”.
The project to make the three-wheeled motorcycle begun in 2010 by making a hybrid version. More than 20 students participated in the project that took five years to be finalized and also required an investment of 11.3 million dollars.
It’s all-electric so it doesn’t pollute. In addition to that, its 16 kWh battery (patented by CTA), offers 170 km autonomy. Aerodynamic-wheels, reduce by 5% vehicle drag.
The three-wheeled motorcycle is powered by a Rotax three-cylinder liquid-cooled inline engine mated to semi-automatic gearbox.
When “sport” mode is activated by the driver, the latter can perform controlled rear tire spins while maintaining stability.
In the US, the three-wheeled motorcycles are immensely popular, especially amongst the senior crowd and disabled riders, who still want to experience the joy of riding in the wind.
