The VEGAN Electric Self-Charging Solar Tricycle

Introducing: The VEGAN, the World’s First Light Weight Multipurpose Hybrid

Electric Self-Charging, Solar Tricycle 

Why the Vegan?

•    Let’s face it, we all like safety, comfort, performance & affordability; with The VEGAN Tricycle, you have all four in one exciting package.
•    We came up with the lowest weight multipurpose tricycle ever designed; for better performance which has a higher strength threshold & a lower production cost and weight,
•    Is solar panel equipped & self-charges as it moves
•    Emits zero carbon emissions.
•    Operates on either solar power or electricity from the national electricity grid & self-charges.
•    A high-efficiency vehicle with a minimum unit cost of only $1400 to produce—the price of an average mountain bike — once we reach our funding goal.
•    120 km range per charge, with swappable battery, doubling the range to 240 km
•    Total weight without extra battery, only 120 km.
•    Payload 300 kg.
•    Stylish Looks & Aerodynamic Shape
•    Built-in GPS Tracking System
•    Internal 12V outlet for Bluetooth speakers & charging phones.

Who We Are

We are an honest bunch of visionaries; a mechatronics engineer & two vocational technicians & an educator, who are completely transparent in that we only have the completed conceptual designs so far. We have been working on tricycles for years & specialize in the fields of mechatronics, fiberglass & aluminum fabrication. We just need to build a few functioning prototypes to show the world what a game changer this will be.

All manufacturing will take place in Pakistan where raw materials are of the highest quality & very affordable, and select workmanship is more than excellent.

We designed the VEGAN Hybrid Electric Self-Charging Solar Tricycle to be a game-changer, and that it is.

We Know its Ridiculously Cheap & There Probably Are Some Skeptics — We break it down for you below

Our Immediate Goal – Stage 1.0

Build Our First Working Prototype for $3,393.70

Our Second Immediate Goal – Stage 1.1

To build the VEGAN Tricycle for just $1400 after the one time cost of fabricating the windows, and the molding & diecast of the fiberglass body

Our Stretch Goal – Stage 1.2

All the other parts are readily available on the international market

To produce 50 VEGAN Tricycles at a cost of $45,000 by getting the price down even further, to $900, as low as it can get, and continue to keep the Vegan tricycle, the worlds best value tricycle, selling at only USD$3,500, outside of Indiegogo.

We will also invest in more R&D & improving future models, such as adding the option of having an AC, etc. We are not opting for this the first time around as we are specifically concentrating on range, weight & battery life as well as price, in order to break all records.

Battery Specs

  • Battery Capacity = 88AH
  • Battery Type = AGM
  • Battery Type = Lithium Battery
  • Charger Capacity = 22amp
  • Charging Time of 100% of the battery on the charger is = 4.4 hrs
  • Charging Time of solar panel only is = 10 Hrs
  • The batteries used in the vehicle are rechargeable VRLA batteries (valve-regulated lead-acid batteries). They are also known as gel sealed batteries or maintenance-free batteries.

Frame & Body

  • Weight of fiberglass body = 22 kg approximately
  • Thickness = 5mm
  • Warranty = 4 years
  • Weight of frame/chassis = 30 kg approxiamtely
  • Warranty = 2 years

Frame

The frame — is our secret weapon to be shared with the world — as it is extremely sturdy, light & durable made from (Al 6061-T6) aluminum & is very reasonably priced throughout Asia, where we will be manufacturing.

Risks & Challenges

Risk

  1. If we do not reach our funding goal, or at least USD$4,747; USD$ 2,747 for parts & USD$2,000 for logistics, then we will not be able to produce our first prototype & if we do not reach our final goal then we will not be able to produce all 5 subsequent prototypes at a cost of only $1,400 each.

Challenge

  1.  Keeping the price down, as lesser value & quality competitors already sell for over double the price for USD$4000. If we control sales, we promise not to cave into corporate greed & will keep the basic model version of The VEGAN Tricycle at a maximum price of $3500, for one year, after this crowdfunding campaign.
