Mitsuoka Motor Co., Ltd. (MMCJ) has been a forerunner of micro EV. The technologies and experiences obtained from the previous models of MC-1EV and Convoy 88 are now migrated to new and unique design of LIKE-T3 which is 3 wheel EV having 100kg payload with two seats at side-by-side position.

Under the circumstance that the government has been designing new category of vehicle which allows two passenger rating by means of deregulating the current GENTSUKI category (motorized bicycle/quadricycle class 1: similar to Quadricycle under European Law) which riding capacity is so far one and max. payload is limited to 30kg, MMCJ, without waiting for this deregulation, has been successful to obtain Type Approval for LIKE-T3 with two seats rating and 100kg payload under the current trike category of less than 250cc bike. MMCJ is very proud of clearing probably the highest and most stringent safety standard in the world with this new design concept. This achievement is no doubt the first case in light vehicle class in Japan.

Therefore LIKE-T3 must be a gospel to all of people who badly desire two seats rating and more payload than 30kg in light vehicle class. Also a notable thing is that LIKE-T3 is eligible to apply the government subsidy scheme set for EV promotion. This is again the first achievement in light vehicle class.
