It's Not A Bicycle. It's Not A Car. It's The Delightful Little Elf...

It's really a three-wheeled, fibreglass, electric assist velomobile that goes a long way to fill the niche between a bicycle and a car.
And it offers advantages over both.
Rob Cotter, the man behind the Elf's maker, Organic Transit in Durham, North Carolina is touting the Elf as the cleanest and most efficient vehicle on the planet.
This very cute little vehicle is designed to carry both the rider and cargo inside a weatherproof shell that comes complete with lights, indicators, mirrors and a solar panel atop the sliding roof that charges thebattery. Or you can charge up by plugging into an electrical outlet
There's more about the little Elf family here...

  1. I like this little machine. Looks neat. Small electric vehicle like that are the way to go for many short distance trips. it.

  2. I like it, but how will it perform with studded snow tires? :)

    1. Haha, studded snow tyres.
      You are so funny sometimes...

  3. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder I guess but it certainly looks like something my grandchildren would love with a passion.*smiles*
