The vehicle can handle steep slopes up to 15°.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 slows the vehicle down and feeds energy back to the battery, thus re-charging it.
With a 16-inch front and 13-inch rear wheels, the design boosts performance and increases passen- ger comfort over rough road.
Gages are arranged clearly, with
improved visibility and safety.
Proprietary technological design makes the handlebars easy to turn and maneuverable.
The layout places the drive compo- nents high in the vehicle, keeping them clear of water in flood condi- tions.
Regulation-compliant lighting are used to ensure perfect visibility at night or on overcast weather.
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.
Wipers clear away water/dirt for safe operation in the rain. The vehicle is even equipped with a windshield washer.
DC 12 V socket provides a low power source that can be used for recharging cell phones, etc.
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.
The roomy interior is designed to provide enough space for tall or large-bodied passengers to ride in comfort.
The roof and window frames are shaped to channel rain away and help keep water from the interior.
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.
Pecolo with low battery can have the battery taken off and replaced.
Replacement with fully-charged battery will enable another run immediately. Replacement of battery takes only 3 minutes.
