Mikael Kjellman loves to ride a bicycles, but in Sweden, most of the year too cold to use the bike as an everyday transport. To solve this problem, the inventor created the original closed body, which you can ride even on snowy Swedish roads.

PodRide have four wheels, a soft comfortable seat, pedals and closed body. If you get tired of pedaling or need to climb the hill, you can enable the 250 watts electric motor. PodRide can travel 60 km per one battery charge and have a top speed of 25 km/h.
Developer PodRide use their vehicle on a daily basis, including for travel to and from work, in the shop. PodRide has a small trunk for a couple grocery bag. You can also hook up to the bicycle rack. The plans for the author of the project also have a longer version with a few seats and a larger rear luggage compartment.
