Age of Three : a brief history of Trikes
The aberration of three-wheeled vehicles in mainstream mobiles on your highway
by Ujjwal Dey

There was always a concept of a three-wheeled vehicle. The tricycle that got motorized. Most of these were owner-created by auto enthusiasts who wanted to custom build their own mean machine for the roads. Now of course, we have really powerful ATVs on three wheels which can give any 4WD a run for its money.

The trike was an increasingly popular form with the front-steering “tadpole” or “reverse trike” sometimes with front drive but usually with rear drive. This was practical due to better safety when braking.

Three-wheeler cars, including some cyclecars, bubble cars and microcars, are built for economic reasons. For example, in the UK there were tax advantages, or in the US to take advantage of lower safety regulations when being classed as motorcycles. As a result of their light construction and potential better streamlining, three-wheeled cars are usually less expensive to operate.
