A velomobile is a “human-powered vehicle” or HPV, also known as a bike-car, or a pedal car. It is a fully-faired recumbent trike, or enclosed recumbent trike. The name “velomobile” is a French word meaning bike-mobile or bike-car. It is the common name used in Europe and is becoming the term most often used in the USA, as well.
Velomobiles are very practical vehicles. Their enclosed shell makes them more functional than a conventional bike, protecting the rider in most weather conditions, thus greatly increasing the amount of time one can ride during the year. Velomobiles also have plenty of cargo capacity, so they can be used for running errands or commuting to work.
Velomobiles with an aerodynamic shape are considerably faster than a regular speed-bike. Adding e-assist (electric motor) makes it easier to climb hills and go farther. This directly benefits those commuting to work, as it decreases the exertion required to get to one’s job.
