Snyder trike
 
A youtuber buys a Snyder trike for $1800 and gives us a detailed walk around, revealing he knows the vehicle well and is looking for an all electric version.

Personally, I would never... that thing is way too unstable.

Good stuff from a channel YouTube understands I kinda like looking at during my quarantine nights... don't miss his Garage54 style "coffee" where the oil should go video, either... 🤷*♂️

I could use one of them. Of course, my commute has 6 turns (including out of my driveway), all with stop signs or lights.

Looks similar to the Zap Zebra, but those and the Zap trucks were electric. Battery weight may keep them on the ground more; but this setup looks unsafe to me. I would enjoy driving them; keeping in mind the stability!

I have been considering a tricycle for a while, since patellar chondromalacia makes it a PITA to ride a motorcycle (or even a scooter). Well, the main reason why I consider a tricycle is it being easier to haul the dog with me :D

A centrally-mounted cockpit, despite requiring one less seat, might still be the best way to overcome this concern.

Due to insurance, tax, title and license the only affordable EV in state would have less than 4 wheels.

There was a 2 seater that reminded me of a 3 wheel Insight, sadly it will probably never get built

Ah well

Motorcycle insurance is more expensive in Brazil, but overall it's still likely that a tricycle may become more affordable than a regular 4-wheeled car due to all the mandatory safety equipments which increase cost, complexity and weight.
