Four wheeled bicycle-car practical for everyday use
19 October 2016
PodRide has the same seating position and height as a small car but with four wheels narrow enough for bicycle paths, great in traffic and for easy access!
The full body of the vehicle is waterproof to keep its passengers warm and dry in any weather, including a heated windshield, soft seats with back support, air suspension and studded tyres for the winter. It also features a small trunk for shopping bags and a tow bar for a bike trailer.
The electric motor and control system are from a standard e-bike system and should make it a street legal bike in many countries. It could then make it possible to operate on bicycle paths and without a driver’s license.
According to Mikael Kjellman, the designer, bicycle-cars are practical, good for your health, cheap to run and good for the environment. They require no new or advanced technology to work and they wont cost much to mass produce.
Motor: 250W electric
Speed: 25km/h (with motor)
Co2 emissions: 7g/km (EU electricity mix)
