T3 personal mobility stand-up trike suited for police patrols
Made by T3 Motion, the T3 is designed for police patrols and other security scenarios where horses, bicycles or cruisers aren't effective. The T3 three-wheeler offers enhanced visibility from its 8-inch riding platform and can turn on its rear-wheel axis. Top speed is 25 mph. The vehicle runs on two rechargeable batteries that give it a range of about 30 miles. Total weight with batteries is 240 pounds.
T3's president Neil Brooker told me the T3 will sell for about $6,200 and two batteries with charger run about $1,800. In the near future he'll offer a trailer to enhance the utility. I think it has potential as a warehouse runner if a service body could be adapted. Brooker gives the T3 a 450-pound payload. But for now the flashing police lights and siren are pretty cool.
