Abstract

This paper presents a study of a very small and emerging sector of automotive industry, i.e. reverse trikes some are eco-friendly human powered vehicle with a compounded electric drive system and some are powered by I.C. Engines the focus has been laid on the simplicity in design, high performance, easy maintenance and safety at very reasonable prices. The incidence of accidental deaths has shown an increasing trend during the period 2003-2012 with an increase of 51.8% in the year 2012 as compared to 2002; The population growth during the period 2003-2012 was13.6% where as the increase in the rate of accidental deaths during the same period was 34.2%. A total of 1,18,533 males and 20,205 females totaling 1,39,091 persons were killed during the year2012 A total of 32,318 persons (23.2%) were died due to accidents of ‘two- wheelers [1]. Because of the fact that that these vehicles are very safe to drive and will be very less to become accident prone these three wheelers could be the future of the automotive sector, In the early 20th century three-wheelers gained in popularity as low-cost, lightweight vehicle that is, until about the late 1920s, when cars generally started going more along the four-wheel track. A TRIKE is a vehicle with one wheel in the front and two in the rear side of the vehicle It's relatively easy (and inexpensive) to build a steering setup with only one wheel. These setups are very common in Asian region. The second type of three-wheeler setup is called the tadpole or REVERSE TRIKE. The opposite of the delta, this formation has two wheels up front and one in the back. A reverse trike is basically a vehicle having two wheels in the front and one on rear side. Most cars have the engine driving the rear wheel and leave steering to the front ones.
