TWIKE 5

As good as TWIKE 4 is - we knew from the beginning that it would only be a prototype. Now we are going into series production. The TWIKE 5 is getting even better. It will be lighter, more powerful, more comfortable, more suitable for everyday use and even cooler.

                                     

BASICS

Top speed(1)
120-190‌‍‌ km/h‌

Range per charge (2)
100-500 km

Weight (2)
435-495 kg

Consumption (3)
7,3 kWh/100 km

                                           

EFFICIENCY

The TWIKE 5 will also be a light, highly efficient three-wheeled vehicle. Because only a light vehicle can be operated in an energy-saving manner. Each additional kilogram costs additional energy if it is accelerated. We have therefore set ourselves the upper limit of 499 kg in the development phase. Although the TWIKE 5 is heavier than the TWIKE 3, the additional consumption is almost completely compensated by a higher electrical efficiency and lower air resistance. Depending on the speed range, the TWIKE 5 is even more economical than the TWIKE 3. Here you will find more information on consumption.

                                

                                  

ERGONOMIC STEERING

The TWIKE 5 is equipped with a completely newly developed sidestick steering system. With this steering principle, already proven in the TWIKE 4, the vehicle can be steered precisely and without fatigue even over long distances and at high speeds.

 

                              

                               

RANGE AND SPEED

Every need for mobility is different. We will therefore offer the TWIKE 5 again in a good tradition with batteries of different sizes. Although the same motor will be installed in all models, the battery size influences not only the range but also the maximum retrievable power. Even the smallest battery size will enable a sufficiently high speed of about 120 km/h and a range greater than 150 km. With a maximum large battery, a speed of over 190 km/h and a range of over 500 km will be possible.

HUMAN POWER HYBRID

Unique in TWIKE: Pedal support through muscle power - for driver and passenger. The energy gained charges the battery and thus increases the range. But even more important is the contribution to one's own health - the pedal generator allows the daily ration of fitness training, almost incidentally.

FINANCING

It is not only the vehicle concept that is unusual. What is also unusual is that neither the corporations nor the stock markets are in charge here. And the TWIKE Community makes sure that it stays that way.

Attention: The TWIKE 5 is limited to a series of 500 vehicles. However, we let the reservation counter overrun, because experience has shown that not all reservations are converted into binding orders and so a late reservation can move forward. We also accept a late TWIKE 5 reservation as an early reservation for a TWIKE 6.
