Urban mobility of the future is not only the speed and sustainability, and miniaturization. Under the above criteria could be bikes, but they do not protect citizens from weather conditions: heavy rain, snow or sun.
The company CityQ of Oslo offers to solve the problem with transportation at the intersection of bike and electric car, says electrek.
Features of the new transport
Car-eBike, as you might guess from the name – a hybrid electric car and Bicycle, designed for commuting or products. The electric car is not equipped with a direct drive – it replaces the software that allows you to use the electric drive system, which drives the electric motor capacity of 250 watts.
The maximum speed of the hybrid 25 km/h Battery will provide ride 70-100 miles on a single charge (the range is critically affected by the weight of the driver). According to the developers, this is the optimum speed and cruising range for comfortable movement in urban environments.
In addition to the driver inside can fit one adult or two children. Door and window can close fully or partially electric vehicle, and at the rear there is a miniature trunk, which can accommodate several smaller packages, for example, with products.
Hybrid Car electric bike-eBike
The width of the Car-eBike – 87 cm, which is two times less than the average car “easy” class and 7 cm wider than a powerful mountain bike. Weighs this vehicle is 70 kg, and its total load capacity is 300 kg.
Formally, according to EU law, Car-eBike – this four-wheeled cargo e-bike, so its driver can use as Bicycle paths and public roads, but the road for this hybrid is prohibited.
CityQ already started taking pre-orders (booking is 99 euros), and the first delivery is scheduled for 2021. The official cost of “transportation of the future” – 6 000 euros (180 172 hryvnia).
The idea of a four-wheeled bike with a roof and the pedals are not new. Similar projects develop the company Organic Transit, Sondors and Better Bike.
