The Sinclair C5 was an innovation ‘a child of the 80’s’ give it a break.

The Sinclair C5 was a battery powered electric vehicle invented by Sir Clive Sinclair and launched in the United Kingdom on the 10th of January 1985. It was a battery-assisted tricycle steered by a handlebar beneath the driver’s knees. Powered operation was possible making it unnecessary for the driver to pedal. Its top speed of 15 miles per hour (24 km/h).

Flip the wheels two to the front and you have the Honda 3R-C. Hondas ‘tribute’?? Using electric motors it’s a zero-emissions vehicle but mostly Honda’s newest concept vehicle. The three-wheeled vehicle will apparently use a battery, an electric drivetrain mounted low in the chassis for improved stability, it even includes a bit of room for storage in the front.

There is a remarkable resemblance between the two and quarter of a decade apart. The Sinclair C5 represents an attempt to solve a problem that the technology of the 80’s couldn’t fulfill. The Honda 3R-C repeats some of the C5’s ‘shortfalls’. Interesting step in the  technology  but ‘are we there yet?’, I think not.
