With the support of both UNO (Logistics and Transport Companies’ Confederation), e+e Proyectos y Eficiencia Energética andCITET (Technological Centre for Innovation applied to Logistics and Transport), the team held several meetings focused in establishing the definition of what an “ideal tricycle” should be.

Powered through LiFePO4 batteries, the tricycle is equipped with substantial improvements both in technology and user-friendliness, compared with current state-of-the-art vehicles in this market. All of the improvements are bespoke features created by KeelWit, turned into standard following the requests of the 6 companies involved in the project.
