Experience Square, located just outside the NYSE, will host the event where riding the T3 will likely be the main attraction. The two-passenger R3 will also be on display.

The T3 is a three-wheeled mobility device designed for use by security personnel. Some of the T3's notable features include its zero-degree turning radius, its ability to hit speeds of up to 15 miles per hour and its 30-mile range. Operating costs for the T3 are claimed to be "less than 10 cents per day."

Moving on to the R3 prototype (pictured), T3 Motion describes it as a "sophisticated plug-in consumer electric vehicle that offers a marriage of advanced technology and environmental friendliness in a stunning package." Out back, the R3 features twin tires mounted on a single rear wheel. The R3's top speed is listed at 70 miles per hour and its range rings in at up to 100 miles. T3 Motion isn't ready to reveal a launch date for the R3, but says a price of $25,000 to $35,000 sounds 'bout right.
