The Podbike® Pedelec is a velomobile designed according to European safety standard EN15194 for electrically assisted cycles. Made from easy reusable materials that together with high efficiency results in personal transport with minimum environmental impact but great creature comfort. Clever vertical parking gives high parking area utilization.
Low weight and record low air resistance from small frontal area combined with a streamlined body result in low energy consumption. Podbike® consumes only 5% of energy compared to an electric car, and less than 1% of an ICE car per km travelled.
Low centre of gravity allow very high lateral forces without danger of overturning so you can maintain vehicle speed thru bends and corners.
Series-hybrid with dual motors has no chains nor gears or gear wires, minimize maintenance and increase reliability, redundancy, and provide sufficient torque for hill climbing and powerful regenerative braking. The strong but light lockable body provide protection.
Measurements: Height 1100-1500 mm (with optional seat elevator), W=799mm, L=2300mm
