The four-wheel e-bike is technologically adapted for all-weather conditions. It has a photovoltaic system provided by In-Lab located on the roof which ensures recharging of traction batteries and supplies the vehicle's control electronics.
The e-bike is not registered as a car, so it can be legally used also on bicycle lanes.
The aim of the project is to eliminate short car trips in highly urbanized areas, such as taking children to school, getting to work, shopping. A driving license is not required. cityq.biz
