PodRide – a Practical Everyday Electric “Bicycle-Car”

A Swedish design engineer is looking to launch his electric “bicycle-car” via an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign.

While Mikael Kjellman says PodRide should be a street legal bike in most countries, we have our doubts.

Despite having four wheels, Kjellman says the vehicle is narrow enough for use on bike paths and with a motor and control system from a standard e-bike, he hopes it would be treated in the same way.

Kjellman’s video pitch is worth watching, even if only to see him doing doughnuts on ice.
