Bio-Hybrid | Fully Charged

  • Published on Nov 30, 2016
  • This is a Fully Charged exclusive! Not something that has ever happened before.
    We present the prototype Schaeffler Bio-Hybrid personal transport system. A pedal assist car? A four wheeled bike?
    So easy to move along and just enormous fun to drive/ride. Let's hope they develop this into a fully fledged product.

    Over engineered and not very welk thought out. It looks like if you have big boots or your foot slip off the pedal you are going to jam it in the wheels. Also what about it is better than a good touring bike? The roof would not keep rain out nor keep you warm. Very stupid engineering. Very impractical. Sorry Germans , 👎👎

    So... it's an e-bike. Don't get me wrong, I love e-bikes and this is a cool one, but... bio-hybrid? Don't fall for the marketing hype, it's just a quad-wheel e-bike. That said, check this out:

    They have a bike truck! It's funny because a lot of cargo e-bike owners refer to their bike as a 'bike truck', but this one actually looks the part. One down side, the range is a little disappointing, probably due to the added weight (it weighs 220 lbs!). The cargo version does about 62 miles with two batteries and a 250W motor - a typical two-wheeled e-bike will do twice that. It does have 200 kg of cargo capacity though. Unfortunately looking at the website this appears to just be a concept. The company in question seems to mostly make automotive parts, so I'm not sure what their play is here. Maybe they think more people will be riding e-bikes so they want to produce a more car-like e-bike that appeals to people afraid of e-bikes so they can produce components for them? Not sure.

    This would make driving fun again, cities should ban cars in the shopping district and use a mix of electric transport and small electric vehicles, skateboards, bicycles, roller skates, scooters, etc, Get people moving again, smiling. As much as I like cars and racing. When I'm shopping, hanging out I don't need to use a car or big truck. Young kids would love the freedom to use skateboards, bicycles, etc without someone telling them, "hey kid you can't skate here"

    You need something like this combined with a pushchair design, so it can be folded (relatively) small, so that 100's parked at a railway station wouldn't take a lot of space.

    I think instead of placing a rack on the rear for groceries or shopping of any kind, things for picnicking, they should instead extend the same framing etc. As the driver's seat is placed on, back over the rack area, and add in a second seat which would also double as the carrying rack!!!

      Agreed, the insistence of EV purity disregards their consumer target for the vehicle segment. If a Honda 125cc PXC hybrid scooter is $4K then a partially enclosed one for $4,200 - $4,500 isn't unreasonable.

  • calkinsb0713

    how much?

    • Satoru
      Satoru 3 months ago

      Most vehicles of this size and power capabilities are around $8K - $10K. They could most likely drop the price if they went hybrid using a cheap 49CC motor with electric assist at a $6K target price. Durham, NC based company named Organic Transit produces one you can buy starting at $8.9K - 10K with a 750 watt motor, 750 watt hour battery, and 100 watt solar panel.
