Definitely an innovative and smart idea but at a very steep price. I can get a used car for less than $5K. I also wouldn't trust driving one of those in the winter.

Hi steemlit!
Yeh the price is a BIG problem at the sadly! - I think they will fall in price as the manufacturing costs go down with economy of scale production.
As for winter driving... I would rather be IN a peBl than ON a bicycle freezing in the rain! haha

Thank you for your input!

I think he @steemlit may have been talking about the practicalities of driving it in the snow. Some of us have real long commutes (me) + dealing with inclement weather to boot. For shorter distances - great. Except for the price...

Precisely what I was alluding to @chelsea88, thank you.

That's what i figured :)

I watched a video on this maybe a month or two back. Cool idea with a lot of limitations though.

Indeed whntx - The peBl is in its early stages for sure, I am just so happy electric bicycles are beginning to help solve the transport and environmental issues that beset us all!

keep well!

If you’re 14 or over, you can ride electric bikes that meet certain requirements.

These electric bikes are known as ‘electrically assisted pedal cycles’ (EAPCs). You don’t need a licence to ride one and it doesn’t need to be registered, taxed or insured.
