Meet The Human Electric Vehicle, A Hybrid Canoe Car

While automakers are attempting to adapt a 20th century technology to the new millennium, other people are working on smaller, more efficient alternatives to the traditional car. The Human Electric Vehicle combines elements of a bicycle, hybrid, and a fiberglass canoe with a top speed of 100 MPH.

The brainchild of Minnesota-based designer Lyon Smith, and built with help from CEO Rich Kronfield, the Human Electric Vehicle offers a smaller, more efficient alternative to the traditional car. The HEV uses regenerative braking and pedal power to provide up to 75 miles of driving per charge, and the pedal assist system allows the HEV to go up to 100 MPH. A small number of solar panels provide a trickle charge of power to this wacky ride.
