Electric Velomobiles

“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.”

—Kris De Decker, “Electric Velomobiles: as Fast and Comfortable as Automobiles, but 80 times more Efficient.” LOW←TECH MAGAZINE. October 24, 2012.
