Local Motors now produces an electric version of its standard Verrado drift trike. Many of the parts are carried over, including the BMW fork, sexy steel-tube body, and go-kart-style rear tires wrapped in 10-inch PVC sleeves, which allow the trike’s rear end to break loose easily. The standard Verrardo needs a hill (or a buddy with a truck and a tow strap) to function, but the electric Verrado doesn’t.
Powered by a 1000-watt motor on the hub of the front wheel, the electric Verrado will get up to about 20 mph. A motorcycle-style twist throttle on the handlebar controls your speed. The lithium-ion battery pack mounted to the rear axle gives you about 45 minutes of riding time after a three-hour charge. Since the electric Verraro is front-wheel-drive, its PVC-wrapped rear wheels have little effect on the trike’s traction (until you want them to, that is)
