The Kaylad 2.0 is a three-wheeled vehicle that is powered by an electric motor with a lithium-ion-battery. The e-tricycle has four driving modes, seven gears, and is able to provide up to 75% of assistance to the cyclist. The designer, Dimitris Niavis, hopes the vehicle would become an alternative to cars and public transport.

Currently, the electric-assisted tricycle complies with European Union standards, rules and regulations. Niavis is now planning to produce a working prototype of the Kaylad 2.0.
