The word

Epic Torq

The Torq is Eic's first foray into street-legal vehicles. It's a 3-wheeled buggy-style 2-seater with two wheels up front and one in the rear. The batteries lie between the frame, in a T-shape between the chassis frame.

The interior is fairly bare, with two bucket seats, a center console with cup holders and an iPhone/iPod holder, and not much else.

The Torq is being developed as an on-road and light off-road vehicle with a fully off-road, all-wheel-drive version to come later.

The company has not released any other specifications for this vehicle and it's expected to market in 2012.

And so ...

An interesting concept and if the price is right, it's one that could find buyers.
