New tilting trike to be sold in United States

Carver One

Slashgear has the scoop on a California company called Venture Vehicles that has licenced Dynamic Vehicle Control  technology to be used in an upcoming tilting trike called VentureOne.

VentureOne takes the Carver concept and commercialises it, bolting in that current environmentalist’s fetish the Hybrid Drive and boasting over 100mpg despite 100+mph speeds and 0-60 in 6 seconds or less.  They’ve obviously changed the body style too, going for more of a futuristic recumbent bike style (or Tron Bike as my friends over at electro^plankton would have it).  Best news, however, is the target price when it comes to market in 2008: $18,000 for the base model, rising to $23,000 for an all-electric variant.

    this vehicle is awesome, but what about safety? Unfortunately I don’t think it would fare too well in an accident with an SUV.
