The anticipated top speed is about 90 miles per hour!
Meet the Draco Sports Trike™
Shockwave Motors has taken the next steps to finalize the design and build the prototype Draco Sports Trike™. Our newest EV is designed to enhance the pure joy of driving – yet still with an eye on safety. The Draco reverse trike is smaller and more agile than the Defiant EV3 Roadster™. It’s also lighter and faster off the line. The single rear drive hub motor is almost as powerful as the drive motor in the Defiant; yet the Draco is about half the weight. While a body may be optional at a later time, for now it will be modeled along the lines of a rail buggy.
The Draco seats two, should have a range of 100+ miles, and plugs into a standard 120-volt outlet for a complete charge in about 8 hours. Level ll Charging will be an option. The anticipated top speed is about 90 miles per hour!
The Hub Motor – How it works
Using a single hub motor mounted in the rear allows us the flexibility to design the Draco with a low center of gravity and provides excellent rear traction due to the centralized location of the battery pack.
As the build continues, we will provide updates and more pictures! Stay tuned the fun starts in a few weeks! Tell your friends to sign up for our newsletter – you will get the details before we post on our website or Facebook.
The EV Market has Gone Ballistic!
According to recent EV news reports, interest in EVs has surged by 84% in the past few weeks! The average price of an EV is pushing $60,000 while the average price of a new gas powered car is about $46,000. However, even at those prices, that $14,000 difference can be recovered in about three years! Factor in that our EV’s are less than half the price of the typical EV and you have a tremendous cost saving.
