I wish they had a better website... I would like to see specs and perfomance data. I dont see it yet... They say better Mpg than a hybrid, but hybrid Cadillac or prius? Theres a big difference.

Interesting product, though.

Saw these at Wing Ding back in July, wasn't impressed. Cost too much even with the high gas mileage they claim it gets. I didn't even bother with a demo ride they offered. Major components are made by Ford so if Ford fails who will they use for a supplier for future models?

They should just call it a mini car. I wouldnt consider riding IN that a trike as far as Im concerned.

Looked at their spec sheet

1742 lbs

5 speed auto tranny w/ reverse

Ford 2.3 liter engine

and a STEERING WHEEL !!

If I am going to spend $32,995 , plus taxes and freight, I would go buy a good used Corvette, it has a steering wheel too!!

Their rally schedule is mostly GW events. I am sure that this thing will appeal to some but is this productsomething thatwill be successfully sold to trike buyers??

It's not a two wheeler made into a three. It has a steering wheel (another negative) it just won't feel like a trike (from experience). It's a softop less a front wheel.

They were at Wing Ding 2007 too. Everyone that sat in it said it was not at all comfortable and was hard to get in and out of. Add to that the reliability of Ford products and it's not a winner in my book. JMHO

Saw quite a few of these on display at the Rally in the Valley, Salem Virginia. Neat to look at, fun to talk about, but they remind me of the old Volkswagon Beetles with the roof cut off. Cheaper and more practical to just buy a Ford Focus since it's a Ford under the hood.
