Top 100: The most desirable cars of all time

Three Wheel

Kolelina is looking to raise US$80,000 through Kickstarter in order to manufacture and sel...

The team behind the bicymple may have simplified the humble bicycle with their minimalist design, but Mihail Klenov and Martin Angelov have gone even further with their aptly-named Halfbike. Aimed at inner-city individuals in need of something to go distances of 5 km (3 mi) or less, they've created a compact three wheeler that ditches the traditional seat and handlebars.  Read More

Toyota’s electric i-Road three wheeler is shaping up as the ideal combination of the best attributes of a motorcycle (maneuverability, lightweight, narrow track, small footprint, low energy consumption, fun) and a car (weather-proof, safe, stable, easy to use) and trials have now begun in Japan using the i-Road in Toyota’s Ha:mo (Harmonious Mobility) vehicle-sharing project. The i-Road trials will be extended to France later this year when Toyota participates in a vehicle-sharing trial in Grenoble.  Read More

Elio Motors announces its next step toward production

Elio Motors is taking the next big step toward the production of its 84-mpg (2.8 L/100km) tandem three-wheeler. It won't quite make its original Summer 2014 start, but it plans to get Elios rolling off the lines next year at the former General Motors Shreveport Assembly and Stamping Plant in Louisiana.  Read More

The DiamondBack leans into turns, thanks to a unique pneumatic system

There's nothing quite like leaning into a turn on a motorcycle. That said, there's also nothing quite like wiping out on one. For people who like the former but are wary of the latter, leaning trikes were invented. One of the latest to catch our attention is the snazzy-looking DiamondBack, which may hopefully soon be entering production.  Read More

The Yamaha Tricity at the Tokyo Motor Show

If personal experience is anything to go by, Europeans love their scooters. One seems to zoom past every few seconds where I live, and a good many of those are three-wheelers from the likes of Peugeot and Piaggio. Yamaha is looking to grab a slice of the action with a Leaning Multi-Wheel concept named Tricity. Debuted earlier this month at EICMA in Milan, Italy, the company sees the three-wheel, tilting scooter becoming the standard city commuter when it's released next year. Gizmag caught up with the sporty little number at the Tokyo Motor Show.  Read More

S3tr: lean machine

At first glance, you might think the S3tr (which is apparently pronounced Streeter) is a knockdown answer to the Segway PT. Like the PT, the S3tr is a compact one-person vehicle driven by a standing rider who balances on a wheeled base and steers with the aid of an upright column. The S3tr has three wheels to the PT's two, but its main advantage is that it folds up, in theory making it more easy to take aboard public transport, or stowing under a desk at work.  Read More

Toyota's i-Road is on the road to production

Toyota's i-Road three-wheeler concept is set to make it off the drawing board and onto the road. Toyota has announced that a limited production run of the fully enclosed, tilting EV will begin shortly, with initial units being transferred to Toyota's Ha:mo urban transport system trials in Toyota City.  Read More

The TerraCraft tilting 3-wheel concept

The Terracraft is a sharp-looking 3-wheeler concept that aims to offer a unique hybrid of the motorcycle riding and car driving experiences. Its retractable roof and doors can offer weather protection and aerodynamics, its tandem double seat replicates the motorcycle pillion experience, and its unique steering system means the driver can manually dial in a tilt angle to replicate the sensation of leaning a motorcycle into a corner. Gizmag spoke with inventor James 'Wes' Abbott.  Read More

The Elio 3-wheeler

Scheduled to sell for less than half the price of the current cheapest car in America, the Elio is a 3-wheeled "car" that hopes to shake up the automotive world. It eschews the trendy electric powertrain for a small gas system, but thanks to its small, light, aerodynamic design, it promises to keep drivers away from the gas pumps for as long as possible.  Read More

Terra Motors' electric tuk-tuk aimed at markets in Southeast Asia

Auto rickshaws, also known as tuk-tuks, three-wheelers or by numerous other names, are a common sight on the streets of many Asian cities. An evolution of the traditional pulled or cycle rickshaw, the gasoline-powered vehicles, which are used as taxis, are a major source of pollution in many Asian cities. Japan’s Terra Motors hopes to capitalize on efforts to cut tuk-tuk pollution with its new electric three-wheeler aimed at emerging Southeast Asia markets.  Read More
