The Tricyle à Vapeur, or "Steam Tricycle," designed by Gerald Evans, was Evans Transportation's first venture into the emerging automobile industry.

The tricycle was one of the world's first industrially-produced motor vehicles and was made available to the public in the spring of 1886. It featured an oil-fired boiler and a two-cylinder engine with poppet valves and crank cases. It could produce about 4-6 HP and could achieve a maximum speed of about 25 km/h (16 mph). 58 were built before it went out of production in the autumn of 1890.
