Although some proposals may have a lot in common and even differ little from each other, from time to time alternatives emerge that seek to attract attention for their originality and their intention to go out of the ordinary.
One of them is the new electric tricycle named Lámpago, which represents a new vision of the world of motorized alternatives in the field of micromobility.
