Three wheel Electric scooter Peugeot HYbrid3 Evolution
Peugeot hopes that the safety features, fuel economy and environmental performance of its latest scooter will tempt commuters out of their cars.

The Peugeot HYbrid3 Evolution has no gears and is powered by a 300cc engine driving its single rear wheel and two 3 kW electric motors – one mounted within each of its two front wheels motors.

The trike offers a range of 10km running on electric mode, but a combination of battery power and stop-start technology delivers 141mpg and 48 g/km of CO2.

Three-wheel configuration offers safer handling
The Peugeot Hybrid3 Evolution leans into corners like any other motorcycle, but thanks to its three-wheels it is exceptionally stable, especially in wet conditions. The provision of anti-lock brakes and three-wheel drive offers further advantages over most other conventional scooters, especially for novice riders.

Peugeot has also addressed the issue of visibility to other road users by mounting LED lights on either side of the base of the front windscreen.
