WeatherVelo is working to produce human-electric hybrids: efficient personal transport for towns, cities and suburbs. These lightweight practical vehicles can improve your fitness, help the environment and ease traffic congestion.
A new vehicle is currently being developed (2020), building on 16 years of R&D experience and in conjunction with other specialists from England, Slovakia and Germany. Bridging the gap between two-wheelers and cars it offers stability, weather protection and good road presence.
Exercise while you travel, or cruise with electric power: pedals and motor are complementary yet independent. The new WeatherVelo vehicle is legally classified as a moped in the UK and EU, so you can keep pace with urban traffic at speeds up to 45km/h (28mph) – this is almost twice that allowed for electrically assisted pedal cycles (pedelecs).
Check back here for pictures and further details as they become available later in the year.
Coronavirus: engineering work continues despite lockdown restrictions, due to computer aided design enabling remote working and prototyping. Thanks to all health and care workers! Keep well.
