sam is a bug-eyed three-wheeled two-person electric vehicle


 

this little bug-eyed three-wheeled electric vehicle is called ‘sam’. the vehicle’s cartoon-like form, made of fully-recyclable high-density polyethylene, consists of only four panels and is accessed via a folding gull-wing door. its roomy interior provides enough space for both driver and passenger to ride in comfort.

sam‘ has a lithium-polymer battery pack that can be fully charged from any mains outlet within five hours. depending on operating conditions and ambient temperature, that charge should hold its range of 80 to 100 km (50 to 62 miles), hitting maximum speed at 90 km/h (56 mph) in complete silence.
