Electric Reliant Robin - 4 wheel conversion
Lynch 4 wheel Reliant Robin
This experimental vehicle is basically a Reliant 3-wheeler fitted with a front sub-frame having two wheels. The object of this conversion is to take advantage of the fact that 3-wheelers are generally registered in a taxation class whose weight limit is 425 kg. They therefore have a weight advantage of nearly 400 kg when compared with a typical modern small car (e.g. Mk 3 Ford Fiesta - 810 kg) giving improved acceleration, hill-climbing and range.
Excellent local run-about
The 3-wheel electric Reliant has been in daily operation in very hilly country in Devon for nearly 18 months and has proved itself to be completely satisfactory as a local run-about with a range of up to 50 miles. The 4-wheel Reliant should have very similar performance.
