Electric Tricycle & Distance: How Fast & How Far Can eTrikes Go?

Updated On: May 16, 2022

Riding an electric tricycle can be a great way to get around town. E-trikes emit zero emissions, they are comfortable and they are great for carrying cargo. The added stability from the third wheel helps to make tricycles easier to ride and better at handling heavy loads. Thus, it may be the perfect purchase for a lot of riders. However, you may be wondering just how fast and far they can go.

How Fast Do E-Trikes Go?

The top speed of electric tricycles depends on the powertrain in use. The majority tend to top out somewhere near 20 miles per hour. However, a few can reach speeds of around 30 miles per hour.

In the Sixthreezero lineup, our electric tricycle is the EVRYjourney 250W Tricycle. This has a recommended operating speed of 12 to 24 miles per hour. So, if you want to pick up the pace, you can easily outperform most other electric tricycles.

What Is the Longest Range E-Trike?

Typically, electric tricycles can go somewhere between 20 and 40 miles on a single charge of the battery. This is plenty to get you wherever you may need to go for most trips. Many people commute or run errands using e-trikes. So, this is ideal for those uses and even some longer trips.

However, the longest-range electric trike can go quite a bit further. There is one with a powertrain that can carry it nearly 500 miles. Of course, this design is quite expensive and requires some sacrifices in terms of comfort and cargo to be able to reach such a distance. Generally, riders are better off with a more moderate maximum range.

Typical E-Trike Speed & Distance

As mentioned, the top speed and distance for most electric tricycles are around 20 miles per hour and 30 to 40 miles distance. These numbers reflect what the majority of riders are looking for from an electric tricycle.

Compared to e-bikes, tricycles are a little slower and have a slightly worse range due to their larger size. However, the compromise is fairly small. Plus, many riders think the trade-off is more than worthwhile for the better riding experience and cargo-carrying ability of e-trikes.

In fact, the capabilities of e-trikes are so good that they are being explored as an option for revolutionizing short-range deliveries. So, if you want something that will offer you the fun and functionality of an electric bike but need something a little more practical for everyday life, this may be the right option for you.
