Trixi mobils are modern, ecological and comfortable tricycles for one driver and two passengers.
You can meet them in several Slovak towns since June 2007.
The vehicles are equipped with an electric auxiliary motor /250 W/ and are able to reach the speed of 10-25 km in hour. The polyethylene cabin is 100% recyclable. They are 3,05 m long and 1,10 m wide and weigh 144 kg.
Trixi mobils ride in Slovakia for the support of Greenways – a grant program of the Ekopolis Foundation. Slovakia has become 18.th country in the world where 5 striking vehicles will provide their services to the public since April till October. The partner of the project of the Ekopolis Foundation is T-Mobile company.
The cabs are produced in Berline since 1997. Nowadays they can be seen in almost every eco-friendly European city. They are mostly called Velotrixi. For example just in Germany you can find the tricycles in 23 cities.
The goal of the Trixi mobil project is to promote ecological, motorless transport, to support Greenways – the grant program of the Ekopolis Foundation and to contribute to the tourism development in Slovakia.
