About the Bricklin SV1 and the Bricklin 3EV: one nameplate, two centuries

The Bricklin SV1

Malcolm Bricklin unveiled his two-seater Bricklin SV1 sports car in 1974.

The car represented a bold departure from convention — a daring attempt to redefine the sports car paradigm. Penned by esteemed automotive designer Herb Grasse, the Bricklin SV1 combined alluring attractive design with performance and safety.

“It’s a sports car because it looks like one…and the low center of gravity so it’s fun to drive…but the idea behind it was, safety does not have to be ugly, number one…and that’s what SV1 stands for: Safety Vehicle One”  — Malcolm Bricklin

Bricklin applied standards ahead of those the US government required in the 1970s, including exceeding U.S. crash protection standards.

The SV1 protected occupants with a tubular steel perimeter frame, roll cage, a chassis capable of withstanding high-velocity impacts without deformation, and energy-absorbing bumpers.  The car didn’t include a cigarette lighter or ashtray, as Bricklin viewed smoking while driving as unsafe.

The Bricklin SV1 which was assembled in New Brunswick, Canada was commemorated by the Canadian government in 1996 with a Bricklin SV1 postage stamp and, in 2003, the Bricklin SV1 silver coin.

Malcolm Bricklin: Changing Automotive History for 55 Years.

A maverick entrepreneur and automotive visionary, Malcolm Bricklin has etched his name into the annals of automotive history as a trailblazer who dared to challenge convention and redefine the industry.

In the ever-evolving landscape of transportation, Malcolm Bricklin once again emerges as an innovator with the introduction of the pure-electric Bricklin 3EV — a truly groundbreaking three-wheeled, scissor-doored electric vehicle that redefines looks, performance, and value.

The father of the coveted Bricklin SV1, Subaru of America, Yugo America, Pininfarina Spider, Bertone X1/9, and the EV Warrior e-Bike, he is one of the handful of genuine living automotive legends. Bricklin has logged more than 55 years in designing, engineering, manufacturing, importing, and marketing automobiles.

Bricklin’s first foray into the automotive world was in 1968 when he founded Subaru of America which became a major player in the U.S. automotive market, introducing American consumers to the quality and reliability of Japanese automobiles.

However, it was Bricklin’s next endeavor that would truly cement his status as an automotive innovator. In 1974, he unveiled the Bricklin SV1 (Safety Vehicle One), a gull-winged sports car that combined futuristic design with advanced safety features. The SV1 boasted an innovative energy-absorbing bumper system, integrated roll cage, and high-visibility fluorescent colors for enhanced safety — a testament to Bricklin’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of automotive engineering.

Malcolm Bricklin also played a significant role in importing European cars into the United States. In the 1970s, Bricklin embarked on the ambitious endeavor of bringing in vehicles from the prestigious Italian design houses Bertone and Pininfarina.

And in the 1980s, he introduced Yugo, a budget-friendly import from Yugoslavia. The Yugo was the fastest-selling European car ever, selling 163,000 in three years, the least expensive new car sold in the United States

Bricklin is now focusing his energies on the development of electric vehicles and alternative energy. With a career spanning over half a century, Bricklin’s relentless pursuit of innovation has left an indelible mark on the automotive landscape, earning him a reputation as one of the most influential figures in the field and one that will be felt for generations to come.
