Canadian affordable EV sales and marketing company Imperium Motor Corp has launched an electric-powered enclosed three-wheel vehicle aimed at the North America market.

E-trikes, electric-powered three-wheel vehicles with one front wheel and two rear wheels, are popular modes of transportation for personal use and work throughout the world. Easy to build and affordable, e-trikes first gained traction in Japan and India. There are currently about 1.5 million e-trikes in India, and China is fast catching up.

Imperium’s new T01 features seating for three, sunroof, reversing camera, alloy wheels, stereo, and more. The T01 e-trike has a MSRP price of $3,990 plus destination charge.

“We are pleased to bring out the next phase of ultra-affordable transportation in North America,” said Rick Curtis, President of Imperium. “The T01 is equipped right and can operate for pennies a day. They are easy to drive and easy to own and an especially well-suited option for inexpensive transportation and delivery services. Our first order is already completely sold out and we will be ordering additional units.”

“This is another important step toward realizing our vision of supplying clean energy vehicles to the North American market,” said Bob Silzer, CEO of Imperium’s parent company DSGT. “This is a huge potential market opportunity, and we believe this modern-design model will be a winner, meeting the transportation needs of potentially millions of consumers.”
