Since 2014, this model has belonged to an American car collector. In 1964, the Trident model with only 79 cm wide seats, 2 seats ever debuted at the British motor show.
According to the manufacturer’s ad, the car has “car comfort at the expense of scooters”. Peel Engineering, until 2011, has produced both the P50 and Peel Trident as manual assemblies on orders with either petrol or electric engines.
The model mentioned in this article is actually the second model of Peel Engineering. The car was developed from the first product called Peel P50. This model was born in 1965 with a unique design of only 3 wheels.
The car is less than 1 meter wide and 1.8 meters long. The appearance of the car makes many people surprised and think of a Peel Trident ball, with a slender appearance like a car coming out of animated movies.
The powertrain used by the micro-car called the “bubble” Peel Trident uses a 49cc engine, producing 4.2 horsepower. This engine helps the car reach a maximum speed of 61 km / h, compared to the current cars, this number is quite serious.
However, the consolation is the fuel economy of the super-saving car, only 2.8 liters / 100 km. The tiny car Peel Trident only uses a 3-speed gearbox, without reverse gear like the P50 model. In addition, the small space with 2 seats and a convertible-style convertible top cum the door so the driver can push the car to the park when needed.
The Peel Trident possesses many advantages such as easily wriggling and finding parking, does not take much time to wash the car, change the tires simply and save fuel … However, the car is not lacking drawbacks, yes can not mention as inappropriate for tall people, quite struggling to carry 2 people.
In addition, the engine has a capacity of only 49cc but the noise is quite loud, the suspension is simple and the tires are too small, so the car is rated as unsafe. This model is only suitable for moving on flat roads in the city due to the 3-wheel structure so it is easy to overturn when traveling on bumpy roads.
