The name of the three-wheeled EV derives from the Spanish word for lighting, but don't be fooled into thinking this is some kind of indication of its speed, as the trike is only capable of a 28 mph (45 kph) top speed. However, the newcomer does certainly impress in terms of appearance.
Produced by a Turkey-based company of the same name, the Lampago comes with a modern retro design and a delta trike configuration, meaning it features two wheels at the back and one at the front. Since recumbent tricycles are known to have stability issues in turns, it was only natural to limit the speed.
Moreover, the Lampago is meant to serve as a personal transporter for short-distance journeys and everyday commutes rather than an adventure vehicle. As such, you won't need a motorcycle license to ride it in Europe, the market it is intended for. An AM or A1 license is enough to operate the three-wheel electric vehicle.
In terms of aesthetics, this is a chic two-seat e-trike that exudes vintage vibes. It features a streamlined and rounded body, miniature side doors, Chesterfield leather chair upholstery, and a vintage two-tone color scheme. Customers will be able to choose from a wide selection of color combinations. The vehicle's rear storage bag and spare wheel cover are made from the same Chesterfield leather, enhancing its retro appeal.
Not many technical details have been revealed by the manufacturer, but we do know that the Lampago scooter is powered by a 60 V/30 Ah lithium battery pack that should offer riders a range of 25 to 45 miles (40 to 70 kilometers) on a single charge. It's not clear if the battery is removable, but it seems it will recharge in about three hours.
The motor type of this three-wheeler is also a mystery. The company does mention it should have an output of 1,000 watts, which is less power than many electric bicycles available on the market. This, again, highlights the idea that the Lampago is mainly designed for cruising around town in style at a leisurely pace.
From the few details unveiled, we also find out that it rolls on 10-inch wheels and that stopping power is ensured by front and rear drum brakes. Moreover, due to the lack of a roof or bracket construction, wearing a helmet while riding it is mandatory.
No pricing or availability info on the charming Lampago electric trike has been revealed so far.
