Campagna Motors’ T-Rex is already on the market and pops up during the warm summer months given that it features an open cockpit design.
But Girfalco, based in Boucherville, is putting a little twist on the three-wheel market with its electric Azkarra.
There are two versions of the Azkarra; the base model or the sportier Azkarra S.
Both have autonomy up to 200 kilometres on a full charge, but there’s a vast difference in performance between the two.
The Azkarra has a top speed of 200 kilometres per hour and can go from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds, the company says on its website.
But the Azkarra S does the 0 to 100 km/h in only 2.5 seconds and has a top speed of 240 km/h. The Azkarra S has the equivalent of 300 horsepower at its disposal (225 Kw), while the Azkarra has 100 hp (75 kw).
And the Azkarra S (for Sportiva) offers three-wheel drive with torque vectoring and, unlike the Azkarra which has only one electric motor, the S has three.
Pricing for the Azkarra starts at $67,500, while the Azkarra S will run you $97,500.
Buyers also have the option to custom build their Azkarra – called Unique Editions – with each option going for $10,000.
Production will begin this year in limited numbers.
