The kickTrike® is a new vehicle type for the
needs of the urban city life. It enables
personal mobility transportation including
many different loads, it requires no parking
space and charging stations, it is easy and
safe to use. This means that many of the
day-to-day trips in the city can be done
without using a car.

Electrically powered, the kickTrike® avoids
air pollution and reduces the noise level
whereever it travels. The low weight and the
efficient drive results in much less energy
consumption than any electric car would need.
The GreenPack battery system used in the
kickTrike® can be charged with renewable
energy such as solar or wind energy.

The kickTrike® can transport one adult and
one child up to 120 kg in total weight. In
addition a loading platform with various
transportation options will carry another 50
kg – all up to 50 km range depending on
temperature and terrain. Depending on the
situation the kickTrike® can run up to 16 mph
(25 km/h) and it can be pushed like any small
scooter or if needed or required.

The kickTrike® is foldable and thus can be
stored practically almost everywhere – in the
own apartment, at friends or at work. Thus,
it is available at all times without the walk
to the parking lot. A charging station is not
required, because the exchangeable
GreenPack®– battery can be recharged at any
outlet using the GreenPack charger.
