When most people think of shared e-mobility products, electric scooters probably come to mind. These scooters have become a common sight on city streets, whether they’re zipping down roadways or clustered in piles on street corners. They’ve broadened our options when it comes to urban mobility.
Gotcha is a company that offers shared e-mobility products, and this provider aims to take the choices presented in this segment a step further. The company has added a three-wheeled electric trike to its range of e-mobility solutions. With the launch of this product, Gotcha becomes the first company in the shared mobility industry to offer e-trikes to the public.
Going the Distance
Thanks to its third wheel and sturdy kickstand, the Gotcha Trike is more stable than a two-wheeled scooter. It can reach speeds of up to 25 mph, and it’s able to travel for 40 miles between charges. These capabilities allow this e-trike to traverse much longer distances than an electric scooter or bike.
Gotcha holds the distinction of being the only shared e-mobility provider to offer four micro-transit products. In addition to the e-trike, the company’s portfolio includes e-scooters, e-bikes and fully electric ride share vehicles. All these products are offered via a single app-based platform. Gotcha currently operates over 50 shared e-mobility systems, spread throughout a host of cities and universities across the U.S.
“We want to revolutionize the way people view shared mobility,” says Sean Flood, Gotcha’s CEO and founder. “Our e-trike gives riders an alternative option that provides added stability, longer trips and more accessibility.”
Stability is important when you’re cruising down busy urban sidewalks and roadways. With its third wheel on hand to provide balanced footing, the Gotcha Trike seems like an intriguing option.
