“We are excited and proud to have been part of Podbike’s bold initiative to create a safe and convenient, zero-emission transportation design. It was easy to find inspiration in their vision to create velomobiles with true mass appeal, that add real functional and emotional value to their users’ lives, and connect people and places in a fun and unique way. With safety and ease-of-use setting meaningful and uncompromising parameters, we approached the physical experience as a whole: from getting in and out of the vehicle and ease of parking and storage, to road visibility and aerodynamic efficiency—and all functional and aesthetic details in between.
“Designed for Nordic regions and Nordic peoples, Podbike naturally speaks to a community of family-oriented, nature-loving and pragmatic but forward-thinking users. We have high hopes that Podbike will bridge the gap between the general public’s perception of velomobiles and an active, meaningful lifestyle that’s becoming more and more popular.”
