Cree Three-wheelers

A Brief History of the Marque

The SAM was manufactured by Cree AG (Creation Engineering Ecology)

Founded in 1996, the company built some 80 three-wheeled electric vehicles in 2001-2002 which were test-driven by a great many people - possibly as many as 30,000.

With two wheels at the front and a single driven rear wheel (tadpole style), the battery powered tricycle could achieve 80 km/h but range was restricted with a maximum of around 60 km at lower speeds.

Finance became a problem and development ceased in 2003. A Polish firm (IAT, Pruszkow) took up the baton in 2005, but little came of their efforts and their website is offline.
