Andre Fangueiro’s ‘E-Trike Revolution’ mimics classic racers

Seeing as how electrification has now found its way into virtually every kind of mobility platform imaginable, there is a new one in town. The E-Trike Revolution sticks out as a contender in the quest for items that some individuals would deem peculiar, but that are, in some respects, also kind of amazing. This tadpole three-wheeler certainly has a lot of character despite its little size.

Experience the future of motorcycling, the “E-trike Revolution”

The ‘E-Trike Revolution’ idea was developed by Andre Fangueiro, the founder of the product design company Studio Lata. This concept is credited with redefining the laws that govern urban transportation. The electric three-wheeler borrows design inspirations from classic café racers, which results in proportions and aesthetics that are retro-inspired, raw, and really cool. The electric three-wheeler has a shape that is both basic and characterful, with a concentration on speed handling.

It seems that the majority of electric cars being produced these days are more concerned with technology than they are with the real function that the aesthetics of an item is intended to serve. This brief idea is to concentrate on and translate the mobility design cues into real traits that are required to ride a vehicle, such as ability, danger, concentration, loudness, speed, and freedom.

The ‘E-Trike Revolution’ by Studio Lata, which was conceived with an immediate torque motor and a complete front suspension, is intended to promote cutting-edge, totally electrical technology. Its quick driving performance is complemented by the use of recycled material, which makes it an appropriate mode of transportation for the future. The three-wheeler design is still in the conceptual stage, but it has a high potential to develop into a product that can be commercialized, and the team is working hard to get testing and prototypes underway.

Fangueiro notes that while creating the E-Trike, the objective was to guarantee that the design was solid and simple without being monotonous. This was done with the intention of making the ride easier to control. The designers at Studio LATA wanted the e-Trike’s form to be aesthetically pleasing to people of both sexes while remaining distinctive.

The ride was developed with the riders in mind, keeping in mind that they are likely to be early birds and world travelers who have a passion for finding new and interesting things. The design studio is now working on introducing the idea, as well as learning more about riders who are fascinated about the E-trike and engaging in communication with possible development partners. This is in response to the ongoing need that people have for excitement and originality.

Studio Lata started the process of creation by interviewing end-users and doing a detailed market examination, looking for possibilities and holes in the industry. In addition to doing significant research, the group developed a number of mockup CAD models using the Finite Element Method (FEM) in order to carry out appropriate engineering simulations. Fangueiro and his crew were able to perform multiple exercises with the assistance of CAD until they ultimately landed at the now completed design. These exercises were centered on the inputs, testing, and design thinking that had been done.
