History of the Three-Wheeler Car

bond_minicar

In postwar England, Bond Cars Ltd. found success in making small, three-wheel cars powered by single-cylinder motorcycle engines. These small cars proved popular among motorcyclists looking to protect themselves from the elements, and as an added benefit, the car didn’t require an automobile driver’s license. In addition, their ability to achieve more than 100 miles per gallon (42.5 kilometers per liter) was extremely helpful at a time when fuel was expensive and supplies were scarce. Bond Cars continued to make three-wheelers well into the 1970s.
