Podride an ebike/car

    An E-bike that looks like a car.

    Mikael Kjellman likes outdoor adventure sports and works as a design engineer. He really like to bike, but living in Sweden, the weather is not always very bicycle-friendly. So he designed and built a four-wheeled bike with full fabric body to keep dry and warm in all-weathers. He have driven it to work every day for a year now and it has proven to be a very practical and comfortable little vehicle. It is a fun vehicle to drive. The big reason for this four-wheel E-Bike has been the environmental benefits these vehicles could have if they were made more popular.

    PodRide is a velomobile that is meant to be a practical every day vehicle.

    It has approximately the same seating position and seat height as a small car, allowing easy access and good visibility in traffic. It has four wheels to be narrow enough for bicycle paths but still be stable in the curves. It has a full waterproof body to keep you warm and dry in any weather, heated windshield, soft seat with back support, air suspension and studded tires in winter. A small trunk for your shopping bags and a tow bar for a bike trailer when you want to bring your kids. The motor and control system are from a standard e-bike system and should make it a street legal bike in most countries. And may then be operated on bicycle paths and without a drivers license.
