Yes, very interesting. Mild climate, short commutes would be great for this. Of course the operator would need to physically fit.

Gears (I think I can see gear set on the rear sprocket), snow tire option ?

A huge missed opportunity on the aerodynamics of this thing... especially the back end.

Velomobiles are usually a little more careful this way.

For an example of a step-in, step-out design with decent aero:

It's $5000 and that means no for this car for me. LOL I love the environmental idea of this.

If you want to get more out of the elements and such.

Twike
Enclosed Human Assist BEV ... you'd have to add the solar as a mod.
Too bad about it's high$.

If you are ok with PHEV instead of pure BEV.
Antro
Enclosed Human Assist PHEV with solar.

Or I also did like the Aerorider 'concept'... Enclosed Velomobile with Electric Assist and extras like wind shield wipers ... Solar would have to be added as a mod.
