The 2019/2020 Vanderhall Carmel
It features a set of doors as well as more interior room to go with the GM-sourced 1.5-liter four-cylinder turbo petrol producing 200 HP, a 10% increase over the Venice’s 180 HP 1.4-liter unit. Since this 1.5-liter engine is also lighter, it gives this new three-wheeler a 75/25 weight distribution, which is a good thing, according to the autocycle manufacturer. Features on the Carmel include the front entry doors, high-performance 4-piston brakes as standard, bespoke 19-inch wheels, LED lights, synthetic upholstery, electric power steering, provisions for accessory air conditioning and a removable roof. The vehicle even comes with heated seats and a two channel audio system with Bluetooth connectivity. As for performance, the 1.5-liter turbocharged unit also puts down 203 lb-ft to go with the 200 HP. In a straight line, the Carmel can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds and max out at 138 mph. The mono-aluminum chassis and ABS composite body have been carried over from the Venice model, and customers will be able to choose between four distinctive colors: Silver Vintage Metallic, Poseidon Blue Metallic, Ruby Metallic and Pearl White.
