Three-wheeled vehicles in the modern automotive world are rarely seen. This is the, of course, because the market did not really put on demand for it. However, the lack of interest does not mean that this car model has been left out of development because actually, it has its own fan bases.
This factor then prompted the American manufacturer of Autocycle to build a three-wheeled car called Carmel. The three-wheeled car certainly does not have cabin space as large as a conventional car but compared to previous generations, Venice, Carmel has a set of doors and interior spaces that are more spacious.
Vanderlhall Carmel is equipped with a 1,500cc four-cylinder turbo gasoline engine that produces 200 horsepower which also boosted 10 percent increase compared to the Venice’s engine with a 1,400 cc capacity and 180 horsepower.
Carmel can accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 4.5 seconds before reaching a top speed of 222 km / h. In addition, the new engine is also lighter so as to allow the distribution of 75/25 weight which is considered better by carmaker.
Autocycle claims that Carmel is the representation of their ongoing commitment to strengthen this segment on the Autocycle production line that was not much glimpsed by other automotive giants.
As such, they are confident that they will be the producers who will lead this segment, and Carmel will be authentic proof that they have a strong dedication to being a trendsetter in three-wheeled models vehicle.
As a three-wheeled car, Carmel is not inferior to other conventional cars in matters of features and technology. This car braking system uses four-piston high-performance brakes as standard, optional 19-inch wheels, LED lights, synthetic seats, electric power steering, equipped with air conditioning and a removable roof.
This vehicle is even equipped with heated seats and a two-channel audio system with Bluetooth connectivity. The 1.5-liter turbocharged unit has 275 Nm of torque with acceleration power from 0 to 96 km/h in just 4.5 seconds with a maximum speed of 222 km/hour.
Carmel uses a mono-aluminum chassis and body from ABS composite models built in Venice. This material makes it has a lighter weight and helps improve its performance.
The consumers will be able to choose one of four distinctive colors, namely Vintage Silver Metallic, Poseidon Blue, Ruby, and Pearl White. Vanderhall offers Carmel starting at $ 39,950.
