The QPod range was launched in June 2004 by the Unique Motor Company (UK). From the range, the QPod City is the only 3-wheeler amongst them. The company, founded by Television Presenter; Noel Edmonds, (Chairman) import the vehicles from Secma in France where the vehicles are also sold under the "Fun Tech" label.
The QPod City is a 50cc 3-wheeler and so in the UK becomes classed as a moped that can be driven by 16 year olds. Powered by a 50cc 2 stroke Morini engine the two seater vehicle can reach 30 mph. Unlike normal mopeds the City includes padded side protection bars, head restraints, 3 point inertia seat belts, roll over protection (stabilisers) and a safety glass windscreen. The body is made from a high resistance plastic that is moulded as a central cell and attached to an anticorrosion shell. The City is steered by handlebars with an automatic twist grip and braking is done via foot brakes. To keep extra dry roof and door options are also available.
