Trait

Driving Performance

  • Hill Climbing

    The vehicle can handle steep slopes up to 15°.

  • Reverse

    Powered reverse with the flick of a switch means anyone can easily reverse the vehicle.
    For safety, a reverse light comes on when in reverse.

  • Parking Brake

    A parking brake, which comes stan- dard, is useful when parking, or stopping and starting on a slope. The parking brake indicator light lets the operator know the brake is on.

  • Removable Battery

    The use of a lithium-ion battery allows for a lighter, more compact design and the option to change out batteries. This solves the problem of not being able to use the vehicle during recharging.

  • Brake System
    (Front / Rear Independent Brakes)

    Front and rear brakes are independent of each other, which avoids trouble caused when both the front and rear wheels lock up. The front brake is hand-operated while the rear brake is foot-operated, making it easy to get familiar with the controls.

  • Rough Road

    The front wheel is mounted on an Earles fork, and the rear wheels independently conform to rough road. As well, the stable design reduces lateral shaking.

  • Regenerative Braking

    Regenerative braking slows the vehicle down and feeds energy back to the battery, thus re-charging it.

  • Large Wheels / Tire

    With a 16-inch front and 13-inch rear wheels, the design boosts performance and increases passen- ger comfort over rough road.

Safety

  • Easy of Operation

    Gages are arranged clearly, with improved visibility and safety.
    Proprietary technological design makes the handlebars easy to turn and maneuverable.

  • Flood Protection

    The layout places the drive compo- nents high in the vehicle, keeping them clear of water in flood condi- tions.

  • Lighting

    Regulation-compliant lighting are used to ensure perfect visibility at night or on overcast weather.

  • Emergency Stop Switch

    To make the vehicle even safer, an easy-to-use emergency stop switch is placed in the cockpit for when it is needed. The switch shuts down all power.

Accessories

  • Wipers / Wiper Motors

    Wipers clear away water/dirt for safe operation in the rain. The vehicle is even equipped with a windshield washer.

  • DC12 V Socket

    DC 12 V socket provides a low power source that can be used for recharging cell phones, etc.

  • Cabin Lights

    The Pecolo comes with standard low-power LED cabin lights that can brighten the interior with a single throw of the switch, useful when loading/unloading passengers or for crime prevention.

Useful Features

  • Spacious Passenger Seating

    The roomy interior is designed to provide enough space for tall or large-bodied passengers to ride in comfort.

  • Body Keeps Out Rain

    The roof and window frames are shaped to channel rain away and help keep water from the interior.

  • Ventilated Design

    Large openings on either side of the driver's seat and passenger compartment, and at the rear, allow the air to flow and keep the occupants comfortable.
