Tribelhorn Logo

Established in 1902 the firm produced their first electric 3-wheelers in 1918. These proved very popular, in particular with the post office which bought a large number. Many of these remained in service into the 1940s. The surviving logbook of one such Post-Fourgon covered a total of 393,339 km during thirty years of service - a distance the equivalent of circumnavigating the earth ten times!

They also built electic single-seater tricycle wheelchairs, "Elektrischer Rollstuhl", and a large variety of commercial and private four-wheelers.
