It's OK I guess but I'd have to agree with the comments; market appeal is limited at least in today's conditions.

Seating at least 2 would help tremendously.

Venture One style 2 seater- in line. This trike just *appeared* and hit the pavement without years of renderings or style changes. I am still waiting for Comet, Triac, EMC3, Venture One, a newer Zap Alius/PU, etc.

EMC3 is a sided by side or 'sociable' 2 seater, but it is gas powered.

Photos- Comet, EMC3, EMC3.

Whoops! So it is!

IIRC One of the commenters called it a one seater and that's what got bogged down in my thick head.

Still I'd have to say it doesn't look like he paid particular attention to aero so from an aero, center of gravity, and user friendliness perspective he may have been as well off with side-by-side seating.

The wheels and tires look awfully wide to me for something so light.
