Portugal’s Interesting Proposition: The EV Veeco RT Three-Wheeler

Environment

A 250-mile range EV three-wheeler is a curious thing.

The VE Veeco RT is an interesting proposition. For those desiring an EV with serious range and cutting-edge looks, the RT delivers in spades. The biggest drawback - and distinguishing feature - of Veeco's design is that it only has three wheels and two seats. VE, an EV auto manufacturer from Portugal, has given the Veeco RT a range of 125 miles with a 16 kWh battery and, most impressively, a 250 mile range with the 48 kWh pack. These ranges are achievable, they say, on a single charge.

The Veeco RT puts out 108 horsepower and 331 pound-feet of torque from its electric motor right off the line. These figures are good for a 0-60 sprint in about 8 seconds and an electronically-limited top speed of 100mph.

VE (in Portuguese, Fabricacao de Veiculos de Traccao) developed the Veeco RT with help from the Lisbon University of Engineering. It was given its official debut back in February of this year at the Casino Lisboa in front of "over 5,000 people." Deliveries are expected to commence sometime in 2013, with pricing set to be announced later this year.
