Vanderhall Motor Works will display its innovative Edison2 auto-cycle at CES 2018. This vehicle combines two of the most progressive trends in motoring: electric-vehicle (EV) drive and three-wheeled excitement.

An electric vehicle (EV) known as the Vanderhall Edison2, it joins the company’s two existing auto-cycle models: the carbon-fiber-bodied Laguna and retro-oriented Venice.

As a tribute to the seminal Thomas Edison-Henry Ford electric car project more than 100 years ago, the Vanderhall Edison2 will be painted any color the customer wants — so long as it is black.

The Edison2 model replaces the Vanderhall Venice’s 1.4L turbocharged GM four-cylinder engine with dual AC motors and a 30 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. The immediately available torque from the electric motors drive the front wheels directly; acceleration is instantaneous. 

Edison2 horsepower is comparable to the Venice’s gas engine at 180, but the Edison2 has about 30 percent more torque: 240 lb-ft compared to 185 for the turbocharged 1.4L four-cylinder engine. This extra off-the-line thrust propels the Edison2 from 0-60 mph in four seconds. Depending on driving conditions, range can exceed 200 miles per full charge. Base Vanderhall Edison2 MSRP is $34,950.

“EVs have amazing performance advantages,” says Vanderhall Marketing Director Daniel Boyer. “Offering an electric powertrain is in line with Vanderhall’s focus on innovative, effortless performance. Our Venice model is already incredibly nimble, and the Edison2 is the quickest Vanderhall we have ever produced.”

Like the existing Vanderhall models, the Edison2 will be hand-built at the company’s Utah factory using almost entirely American-sourced components. Vanderhall founder/designer Steve Hall follows his family’s legacy of innovation, holding several patents for the Edison2 and other Vanderhall models: including the tab-and-slot double-wall chassis and the non-welded cross-hatched front grille. (His grandfather H. Tracy Hall developed the process for creating synthetic diamonds, used in industrial applications.)
Many Edison2 components have similar underpinnings to the Venice model. These include the front pushrod suspension system. The rear suspension employs an aluminum single-sided swingarm with mid-mounted coil spring. GM rack-and-pinion steering incorporates GM-sourced knuckles. Additional GM technology incorporated in the Vanderhall Edison2 includes brake assist and steering assist. Standard Brembo brakes halt the Edison2 from 60-0 mph in less than 85 feet.

The Vanderhall Edison2 was created to modernize open-air roadster driving excitement. Pre-orders are being accepted now for 2018 Q2 initial deliveries.
