KTM Sportmotorcycle AG wants to race with the E3W

Everyone wants to be in peace with the environment. Now time has come for KTM Sportmotorcycle AG to join the crowd. They've created the E3W model and want to enter the eco-race. The model we're talking about is a three wheeler and was created by KTM PowerSports in collaboration with the Austrian Institute of Technology and industrial design studio Kisha. The Austrian government had a lot to do with this project too, as it had participated to the foundation. In the end, the results were very well received.
The model is a very practical eco-friendly car with two seats that will have no problem wondering through the city traffic. Its design is a special one, very stylish.
The KTM E3W only weights 500 kg able to deliver 20 horsepower and the lithium-ion batteries that it uses can make the car run for up to 100 km if their fully charged. The car is made entirely from plastic.
The carmaker will build 50.000 units over a two year partnership and the price for one will be somewhere around EUR 5.000.
