We have a strong desire to create a vehicle that makes cycling attractive for more people and combining the comfort and safety of a car with the benefits of cycling.
The Podbike velomobile builds on years of R&D and user experience of e-bikes and velomobiles.
We are motivated to find solutions to the escalating climate change primarily caused by excessive human consumption of fossil fuels – coal, oil and gas. Velomobiles are the best in class personal transport based on energy consumption during production and use. Podbike velomobile reduces emissions from transport by a factor of ten or more compared with electric cars on renewable energy and a factor of at least forty compared with modern cars (traditional and hybrid ICE cars). Podbike velomobile diminishes noise and air pollution, reduces traffic jams and require much less parking space while also providing healthy exercise.
Founders Per Hassel Sørensen (TCO) and Anne-Lise Heggland (CEO) are forward-thinking and nature-loving entrepreneurs. We want to inspire people to make a conscious choice and attract people that act now to make the planet a better place!
In our workshop in Norway, we focus on sustainable and ethical production with minimal carbon footprint. We are experienced engineers and creative enthusiasts supported by business-oriented team members.
