In a world constantly seeking sustainable alternatives, custom electric tricycles have guadually becoming one of the excellent option for businesses transporting goods and people while reducing their carbon footprint. This article will explore the exciting realm of custom electric tricycle, from their functionalities to custom options and battery choices. We will also give you all the information you need to make an informed decision about custom electric tricycle.

What is a custom electric tricycle?

electric tricycle, often called e-trike, is three-wheeled vehicle powered by batteries and an electric motor to offer a clean and efficient mode of transport. Unlike ordinary electric tricycles, which are mass-produced and have standard specifications, custom electric tricycle is to order and can be tailored to specific preferences and needs. They combine the stability of a tricycle with the benefits of electric power, making them an excellent choice for various purposes, including, commercial passenger transport, cargo transport, commuting, and leisure riding.

Which parts of electric tricycles can be customised?

One of the standout features of custom electric tricycle is the ability to tailor them to specific needs. Some of the most customized parts include the frame design, the motor and custom lithium battery, seating options, cargo capacity, and appearance and logo. Customization options can vary depending on the client’s needs and the manufacturer.


Factors affecting the performance of an electric tricycle

The performance of an electric tricycle can depend on many factors. Some of these include motor power, battery capacity, weight, and terrain.

  • The higher the motor power, the more speed and torque for carrying bigger loads.
  • A larger battery capacity can provide more range for the tricycle to run on a single charge, and a higher discharge rate allows the tricycle to go faster.
  • A larger wheel size will give a more smooth and stable ride; however, it will also mean higher rolling resistance and lower maneuverability.
  • The frame material can also affect the tricycle’s performance and efficiency, determining its structural strength.

Is the battery of a custom electric tricycle important?

The heart of any electric tricycle lies in the battery. It is, therefore, imperative that the battery is one of the most essential components of an electric tricycle. The battery also affects the speed, the torque, the climbing ability, and the reliability of the tricycle. It provides power to the motor and determines how far the user can travel. A good battery makes the tricycle a reliable means of transport and allows one to carry heavier loads.

Fuel tricycle vs. electric tricycle

Let us shed some light on the differences and their pros and cons.

Fuel tricycles:

  • Fuel tricycles have a more extended range than electric tricycles.
  • Fuel tricycles can also be refueled quickly at gas stations and are cheaper to buy.
  • However, fuel tricycles emit harmful gases and noise that pollute the environment.

Electric tricycles:

  • Electric tricycles are very environmentally friendly since they have zero emissions.
  • Electric tricycles are cheaper to operate and maintain.
  • Have a shorter range than fuel tricycles.
  • More expensive to buy due to the high motorcycle battery price.
  • However, in many countries and regions, electric tricycles have been provided with economic subsidies.


Different kinds of electric tricycle batteries

There are several different kinds of electric tricycles available on the market. These can be classified based on the types of batteries that they use. The most common types of batteries are lead-acid, nickel-cadmium, nickel-metal hydride, and lithium-ion. Each type of battery has its advantages and disadvantages.

Lead-acid batteries: The battery life and cycle life are both short, the volume is large, and it requires frequent maintenance, and lead-acid will cause environmental pollution, but the advantage is that the purchase cost is low.

Nicle-cadium batteries: High temperature tolerance and not prone to explosion, but cadmium is harmful to the environment.

Nickel-metal hydride batteries: The price is lower, and there is no heavy metal pollution. But they are heavy and have short battery life.

Lithium-ion batteries: Stand out as the best choice. They have the highest energy density and longest lifespan among all types of batteries. They are also light, compact, safe, and have no memory effect and low self-discharge.

Custom electric tricycle vs. ordinary electric tricycle

A custom electric tricycle is a type of electric tricycle that is made to order according to customers’ specific preferences and needs. An ordinary electric tricycle is a mass-produced type of electric tricycle with standard specifications.

The main advantages of a custom electric tricycle over an ordinary electric tricycle are that users can optimise the performance and efficiency of the custom electric tricycle by selecting the best motor, battery, wheel, and frame for their needs and preferences. They can also choose the size, shape, and design features of the custom electric tricycle.

And for TYCORUN’s electric tricycle products, which are applicable to TYCORUN battery swap station, saving the trouble of adapting the battery swapping cabinet.

The major drawback of a custom electric tricycle is that users need to spend more time designing, and they may end up paying more than an ordinary electric tricycle.


Tips for choosing custom electric tricycle manufacturers

Finding the right manufacturer is crucial when getting custom electric tricycle. Here are a few tips to ensure the best choice:

  • Do some research on the reputation and credibility of the manufacturer.
  • Compare the prices and services of different manufacturers by requesting quotes.
  • Choose a manufacturer that has experience and expertise in making custom electric tricycle by looking at their portfolio and past cases.
  • Choose a manufacturer with all standard production qualifications to get the safest and most durable products.

How to charge a custom electric tricycle?

Most tricycles come with a built-in charger that can be plugged into a standard electrical outlet. Connect the charger to the tricycle’s battery port and wait for it to fully charge, be careful to avoid overcharging. It is usually most appropriate to charge the battery with about 20%-30% left. The charging time may vary depending on the tricycle’s battery capacity and the charger’s specifications.

Generally, it takes about 8 hours to fully charge the battery. After it is fully charged, users should unplug it in time. Charging for too long will not only damage the battery or cause battery failure, but may even cause safety accidents in severe cases.

The optimal ambient temperature for charging is around 25°C. Try to charge in a dry, ventilated environment without direct sunlight.

In addition, even if the power is turned off, there are some power-consuming devices on the electric tricycle, such as alarms, so the electric tricycle will slowly lose power during storage. When the electric tricycle is idle, users should recharge it once a month to keep the battery healthy.


Can a custom electric tricycle use battery swapping stations?

Yes, custom electric tricycle can use battery swapping stations. These stations allow tricycle owners to exchange their depleted batteries for fully charged ones, eliminating the need for lengthy charging times. Battery swapping stations are becoming increasingly popular, providing a convenient solution for tricycle riders on long journeys. For example, Benlg’s custom electric tricycle has reached a handshake agreement with TYCORUN’s battery swapping stations. Benlg’s custom electric tricycle battery is perfectly adapted to the TYCORUN battery swapping station, so there is no need to worry about the compatibility.
