Three wheel motoring has been around for a bunch of time, from the extreme Davis D-2 Divan, to the pedestrian Reliant Robin. The most successful incarnation to date has been in the guise of  scooters – like Piaggio’s MP3, and Peugeot’s clever HYbrid3 – agile, quick and just a little sexy, in an offbeat kinda way.

In a recent  study of more than 1,700 U.S. consumers and their electric vehicle purchase consideration, Nielsen saw that seven  out of 10 U.S. consumers would consider purchasing an electric vehicle, and 63 percent would consider them for their positive environmental impact. However, price continues to be a barrier with only 35 percent saying they would pay more for these vehicles.
