Electric tricycles are making an increasingly regular appearance both on and off-road around the country. Thanks to their stable design, these tricycles offer excellent traction on unstable ground and are perfect for challenging weather conditions, including snow.

Tricycles are well-suited to a wider wheelbase. Generally, larger wheels will add extra weight to the tricycle, but thanks to the motor, this is offset, meaning users can enjoy a stable and pleasant ride.


An electric tricycle, also known as an "e-trike," combines the benefits of a traditional trike alongside those of an electric motor. As the name suggests, the most defining feature of these trikes is their unique design with three wheels, providing added stability. Electric trikes come with an integrated motor, usually in the rear wheel, that assists the rider's pedal power.


  1. Versatile Terrain Handling: The trike's three-wheel design excels in handling various terrains, providing superior traction and stability.

  2. Enhanced Comfort: The stable design ensures a smoother ride, taking the edge off rough patches on roads or trails.

  3. Electric Assistance: The motor offers a helpful boost, making hill climbs a breeze, covering longer distances, and riding against strong winds with ease.

  4. Better Balance: The trike's three-wheel configuration offers excellent stability, which is advantageous for beginners or those who are not as confident on a bike.

  5. All Year Round Usage: Electric trikes are suitable for all four seasons, ensuring riders get more use out of the trike throughout the year.

  6. Durability: These trikes come with extra robust frames, designed to support additional weight and provide durability.

  7. Safety on Soft Ground: On softer terrains like mud, sand, or snow, there is a reduced risk of the trike sinking or getting stuck, making it safer on these terrains.


It's vital to weigh up both the pros and cons of an electric tricycle based on your individual needs and use scenarios before purchasing one. Here are some considerations:

  1. Weight: Electric trikes tend to be heavier than standard bicycles mainly due to the extra weight of the three-wheel design.

  2. Cost: The specialized design and added specifications of electric trikes can mean that they tend to be a little more expensive than normal electric bikes.

  3. Maintenance: They may require more frequent maintenance, especially if ridden on challenging terrains.

  4. Energy Efficiency: While pedal-assistance is beneficial, the added weight can impact battery efficiency.

  5. Less Manoeuvrability: The size and weight of electric trikes can make them less agile, especially in tight spaces compared to regular-sized bikes.

  6. Storage and Transportation: They are bulkier in design, which can pose challenges for storage and transportation.

What is an electric trike like to ride?

Riding an electric tricycle offers a unique experience that combines the stability of the three-wheel design with the benefit of electric assistance from the motor.

  1. Smooth and Stable: The three-wheel design offers a smoother ride on various terrains, providing greater stability.

  2. Grippy and Secure: The trike's three-wheel configuration ensures better traction, whether on pavement or other surfaces.

  3. Effortless on Challenging Terrains: With motor assistance, tricky terrain or inclines become much more manageable.

  4. Heavier Feel, but with Assistance: The weight difference is compensated by the significant electric assist from the motor.

  5. Less Agile: The trike may feel less nimble, especially in tight turns or weaving in and out of traffic.

  6. Fun Factor: Riders often report that the combination of stability and power from the motor makes for a very fun and enjoyable ride.
