ELF: The Solar Electric Tricycle

09 Jul, 2014

There’s a new vehicle hitting the road that’s trying to bridge the gap between bicycles and cars. We’ve seen electric assist bicycles before. But never one like this. The ELF, from Organic Transit, is a recumbent tricycle, with a solar panel on top, and a trunk in the rear.

It’s a single occupancy vehicle that marries the environmental benefits of a bike with the personal convenience of a car. Inventor Rob Cotter hopes his 150-pound invention entices people to reduce their dependence on single-occupancy vehicles.
