3-Wheeled Electric Tilting Vehicle
Meet the Carver, the first enclosed narrow vehicle (ENV) with active tilting technology that offers a unique and exhilarating driving sensation like no other! This three-wheeled 100% electric Dutch innovation seamlessly maneuvers and tilts as you “carve” into corners. This “enclosed scooter” conjures such a liberating feeling, it’s as if you’re flying over the road, according to enthusiastic customers.
In its infancy, the Carver was featured on the popular British show, “Top Gear,” and received rave reviews. While the Carver is not much larger than a scooter, it can accommodate two people – a driver in the front and a passenger in the back – and even some extra baggage! The Carver is a great alternative to the car, public transport or the bicycle. It protects you from the elements, it’s easy to park and bypass traffic jams, it’s eco-friendly and cost-effective, and it’s a blast to drive!
The Carver’s dimensions are 2.89 m length x 1.49 m height x 98 cm width. Its maximum speed is 45 km/hr. and it accelerates from 0 – 45 km/hr. in just 8 seconds. This fully-electric joyride has a maximum power of 2 x 2 kW and a maximum torque of 2 x 150 Nm. The weight including the battery is 330 kg. The unladen mass (without battery) is 260 kg. The maximum weight allowed is 500 kg. Charging time at 80% is 4 hours and 12 minutes and full charging time is 5 hours and 18 minutes.
As mentioned, one of the major highlights of the Carver is its patented Dynamic Vehicle Control (DVC), which is “a globally unique tilting technology.” Regardless if you’re on a curve or an uneven surface, the DVC will automatically adjust your balance. This instinctively links the tilt angle of your cockpit to your driving behavior and therefore safeguards an optimal distribution of gravity – no matter the circumstance.
The Carver is equipped with a soft Cabrio top, sports interior, three-spoke sports steering wheel, an electric windscreen defroster, front and rear three-point seat belts, USB plug-in charger, maxi wide removable side mirrors, glass side windows, etc. The Carver comes in four colors – gunmetal grey, white, blue, and tangerine.
