Why two wheels in front ?
It’s more stable. Most modern three wheel vehicle designs have recognized the advantages and adopted this approach.
Why front wheel drive ?
Two driven front wheels provide double the traction (instead of one rear wheel).
Why do others have rear, single wheel drive?
It is cheaper to produce and requires the least engineering. But the stability and traction issues give three wheelers a bad reputation.
Why place the engine in the rear or mid section ?
It puts the variable weight of the passengers at the widest part of the vehicle. That provides the best center of gravity (for performance). A side benefit is that it also allows for better vehicle shapes.
How does the Dragonfly concept enable great fuel efficiency and electric vehicle range ?
Wind drag increases exponentially with speed, and plays a large role in MPG and EV Range on the highway. The natural shape of the bullet shaped forward seating and rear engine can minimize wind drag and increase range on the highway, while lighter weight contributes to city efficiency.
What's does the "100% fun" mean ?
The forward seating provides an entirely new level of excitement. The connection with the road is akin to driving a motorcycle. Some people have said it’s like flying. Others have said it’s the best thing since a rollercoaster. One thing for sure… it’s entirely unique and 100% fun!
