For urban commuters: A pedal-solar electric hybrid vehicle

or the urban commuter who likes the option of driving an electric vehicle to work (you don’t like to start the day sweaty, we get it) but wants to bike home, The Elf is your dream vehicle.

It’s a hybrid that runs on solar electric and pedal power. So for those who like to get an early workout, you can bike to work, let the sun charge the battery during the day, and have a leisurely, solar-powered ride home. The vehicle can travel up to 30 miles on a single charge. It also has basic features found in a car: LED headlights, tail lights, and signals; side mirrors; and disc brakes.

Organic Transit, based in Durham, N.C., built the vehicle and has two variations of the hybrid. Along with The Elf, the company created The Truckit. It has a more heavy duty design and the ability to carry up to 800 pounds (The Elf can carry 300 pounds in addition to the rider). It would be a perfect design for an urban delivery service that doesn’t want to hitch a trailer to their bike but wants to use sustainable business practices.
