31 Next Generation Vehicle Innovations

From Autonomous Adult Tricycles to Urban Electric Scooters

— December 18, 2015 — Autos
These next generation three-wheeled vehicles range from autonomous adult tricycles to urban electric scooters that are designed with efficiency and convenience in mind. Thanks to environmental and budget concerns, millennials are embracing car alternatives more so than any other demographic.

While bicycles and electric scooters are a popular mode of transportation for urban dwellers, the evolution of compact cars has influenced a number of hybrid vehicle concepts including these three-wheeled examples.

In addition to compact taxis, other standouts include airborne concepts like the 'Tripogryph.' Though still in its development stages, the unique triangular vehicle is designed for use both on land and in the air. Other next generation vehicles with three wheels include personalized racers that are 3D-printed and lightweight along with amphibious three-wheelers that are designed to aid with flood relief efforts.
