Electric Velomobiles: almost as fast as cars, but 80 times more efficient

Anonymous Coward writes | about 2 years ago

An anonymous reader writes "Both the velomobile and the electric bicycle increase the limited range of the cyclist — the former optimises aerodynamics and ergonomics, while the latter assists muscle power with an electric motor fuelled by a battery. The electric velomobile combines both approaches, and so maximises the range of the cyclist — so much so that it is able to replace most, if not all, automobile trips. A quarter of the existent wind turbines in the US would suffice to power as many electric velomobiles as there are Americans."
