In the automotive world, they had once had the idea of having a big enough wagon that would accommodate as many passengers as possible, but availability of alternative materials and metal engineering fabrication were not fully developed yet. Now this type of car required extensive power to move because of its drag, so today, with the differences in our economy and lifestyles, a lot of manufacturers are rethinking how cars are made.
And yes, we still need those big wagons now-a-days, but the defining need to accommodate a budgetary value of driving fewer passenger seats, cheaper, lighter and tinier engines that are more economical, is drawing more people these days to have them as their workhorse vehicle. These types of vehicles can get you to your destination much faster, they can be used without your having second thoughts to move around as needed, and they have a very low cost maintenance.
Think of 3 wheel car enclosed compartment with a dashboard and a steering wheel while following the same safety and fuel economy rules as four-wheeled cars are these days in the market. This in itself would really redefine the idea of an automobile. Since these three wheeled vehicles would basically be considered as motorcycles then this thee wheeled vehicle is exempt from many state and federal rules dictating safety and emission standards that apply to cars, and this is a big factor already.
Talk about hybrid, this vehicle is basically powered with the same fuel but behaves exactly like automobiles not found in electric cars. What makes electric cars composite is because of its engine. In autocycles, the entire structure is composite, making an automobile out of a motorcycle.
Reverse trike though have been around since World WAR II, but has never quite caught on, until the idea of an autocycle. In this vehicle, there are two extended wheel in front while there is a single wheel located in the back. An autocycle that has to comply with existing vehicle safety regulations applied to passenger cars, which includes a steering wheel air bag, curtain side impact air bags, anti-lock brakes, and an electronic stability control.
After proving its superior handling characteristics derived from a correctly designed layout, market acceptability remains to be the biggest dilemma to most autocycle manufacturers. The design of the autocycle is unlike the three wheel vehicles before which had a tilting problem since it consists of one wheel in front and two others behind and is constructed with a more stringent and rigid suspensions. Today’s two wheel in front and one at the back tilting three-wheelers designs can lean into turns like motorcycles, increasing inertia resistance that are poorly found on a four wheel vehicle.
