The BugE PEV is a new forward trike kit design. Capable of a maximum speed of 50mph and a range of 40 miles on a charge, this electric trike looks pretty promising. Of course like all electric vehicles, your range decreases as your speed increases, but this puppy sounds like it has just a slight step up in speed and range categories than most electric bikes and scooters out there. The kit is supposed to run around $3K.
I'm really taken by this design, simple and sleek, there is a trunk in the front, and a creative mind could come up with all sorts of ways manage more cargo behind the seat. Designed in Oregon, that fairing really looks like it would perform well against the constant drizzle we see up here in the Pacific NW.
There is a video of the BugE in action here.
