Campagna to build electric T-Rex

Canadian three-wheeler manufacturer Campagna has announced plans to build an electric version of its T-Rex three-wheeler.

Campagna currently has two three-wheeler platforms in its lineup, one powered by BMW’s K1600 six-cylinder engine, the other powered by Harley-Davidson’s V-Rod engine.

The new model will have an electric motor built by US-based battery bike manufacturer Zero. It will debut at the upcoming Montreal Electric Vehicle Show as a prototype, with a more advanced version coming this summer.

Campagna Motors Announces 100% Electric T-REX®

Prototype to be unveiled at Montreal Electric Vehicle Show

BOUCHERVILLE, QC – April 4, 2018 – Campagna Motors announces the development of an all-electric T-REX® Prototype. Previously establishing successful partnerships with BMW and Harley-Davidson to source powerplants for the T-REX® and V13R® respectfully, this undertaking consisted of integrating Zero Motorcycles’ powertrain technology into the chassis of the legendary T-REX® for an even more dynamic and unique offering.

The motors, batteries and controllers have been seamlessly integrated into the T-REX®, creating a high performance vehicle, without the need for gasoline.

“Thanks to the hard work of our dedicated team and partners, the T-REX® has become the benchmark for three-wheeled performance,” says André Morissette, president of Campagna Motors, “Our collaboration with Zero Motorcycles brings a whole new level of innovation and originality to this already exhilarating platform.”

Zero is known for consistently producing the electric vehicle industry’s most energy and power dense battery packs, offering more range and performance than any production electric motorcycle on the market. Their advanced lithium-ion batteries are also maintenance-free.

“We’re excited that Campagna selected our industry-leading powertrain technology to develop their electric T-REX®,” said Zero Motorcycles Director of Business Development Jim Callahan, “Zero’s electric powertrain is an ideal solution for the ultimate three-wheeled experience. This vehicle is an absolute thrill to drive.”

The Prototype will be unveiled for the first time at the Montreal Electric Vehicle Show. A second more advanced prototype is planned for the summer of 2018.
