    I can contribute my past experience with an electric three-wheeled vehicle I owned in early 2000’s. It was the Gizmo EV. Used Trojan lead-acid batteries and had an electric motor driving the single rear wheel. The major drawback of the single-wheel drive was losing traction in slippery conditions. In the dry, everything was fine, but with a bit of rain or light snow it was disconcerting to drive — I was always on high alert in those conditions. Couldn’t punch the accelerator if an emergency required it. Company still has a website. Not sure if they’re still producing these EV’s.
