How Much Is an Electric Tricycle? Breaking Down Costs For eTrikes

Updated On: February 21, 2024

Riding an electric bike is a great way to get around, especially if you are concerned about the impact your transportation has on the environment. However, what is even better than an electric vehicle with two wheels? One with three wheels! Sixthreezero’s selection of e-bikes includes e-trikes. These are ideal for people who want all the fun, practicality and eco-friendliness of an e-bike but with the added stability and support of an extra wheel in the back. But how much does an electric tricycle cost? And how much should you pay to find the perfect 3 wheel ebike for you.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Trike e-Bikes

The sticker price of the EVRYjourney trike is $2,199.99. This brings it in at a slightly higher price point than the two-wheeled EVERYjourney electric bike. However, there are some good reasons for this. These are some of the factors that impact the price of an e-trike:

  • Weight: Lighter e-trikes tend to be more expensive. They are made from higher-quality materials that help to reduce the overall weight. The exception to this is that larger batteries are both heavier and more expensive.
  • Build Quality: The quality of the trike’s construction is a big factor in price. If you want to find a premium-quality e-trike, you can expect it to be more expensive.
  • Powertrain: The battery, motor power, top speed and range of an electric trike all impact its cost. Furthermore, the quality of the powertrain components can also have a big impact. However, better components also tend to last longer with less maintenance.
  • Cargo Capacity: One of the big draws of trikes over bikes is that they can handle more cargo on the rear axle. E-trikes that can deal with greater loads tend to be more costly.

Trike Battery & Motor Cost Differences

If you want to get higher top speeds and greater range, you should plan to spend at least $1,000 on your electric trike. Lower-cost models typically cannot exceed 15 miles per hour and may have only enough battery power to go 15 to 30 miles of range.

Like many products, electric trikes tend to offer what you pay for. However, there is also a large range of prices. Lower-cost models will require you to make a lot of sacrifices on the powertrain. Conversely, top-end models often involve a lot of added cost for minimal added benefit. For most riders, something in the middle is ideal.

What are the range of electric tricycle prices?

For basic entry level e trikes you can expect to pay $800 - $1,200. For this type of tricycle you would typically have an motor that is 250 watts of power with a battery of approximately 10.4ah. The motor will most likely be a front hub motor or rear hub motor. Which are both great for around the town riding. If there is a larger motor or battery for this price range, the quality of the components may not be great. But it's hard to say, make sure you trust the brand and feel that the specs are up to the quality that you expect.

A mid range price point for an electric tricycle would be $1,200 - $3,000. Within this price range there are many different styles of electric tricycles. The motor size can vary from 250 watts to 750 watts and the battery will typically be 10.4ah to 21ah. The motor also could be located in one of three places, either a front hub, mid drive or rear hub motor. Mid drive motors typically cost more than a rear hub or front hub motor. And of course the larger the battery the more expensive. Fat tire electric tricycles also tend to be more expensive as well. It's important to research the specs and really determine which specs will suit your rides best. The better your can match the specs to your riding needs the less money you'll waste on features you won't need or use.

The top of the line e trike can cost over $3,000 and up to $10,000. In this price range you will typically be seeing electric tricycles with motors bigger than 750w and batteries at least 15ah in size. Many of these tricycles will be mid drive motors which tend to provide more torque. Tricycles in this price range are not necessary for most recreational riders but if you plan to go off road or take on big hills this would be a great option. Also many e trikes in this price range have specific use cases and are custom for certain types of riders. Many of these are recumbent, fat tire cargo or adaptive type tricycles. The custom styles can drive the prices higher.

Cargo Trikes

Many people choose to ride e-trikes over e-bikes because the former can handle cargo more easily. Not only are trikes more stable and better at handling bigger loads, but they also have a higher weight capacity due to having an extra wheel. Trike with a basket over the rear axle can be impressive cargo carriers.
