Founder, Pedalectric Vehicle Corporation
Pedalectric develops and builds Ultra Light Ground Vehicles.These 4 wheel vehicles are light enough to move efficiently with human power alone, but are built with features that permit any source of power to be used - batteries, ethanol or natural gas engines, and fuel cells. Seating 2 passengers side by side, they meet the USDOT LSV standards.
Pedalectrics are Ultra-Light Ground Vehicles (ULGVs) built to meet the U.S. Department of Transportation Neighborhood Electric Vehicle (NEV) FMVSS 500 standard. PDL 4-wheel vehicles are designed to be manufactured inexpensively with light steel or magnesium alloy frames, and fabric, thermoplastic or carbon fiber body panels. Based on advance bicycle engineering and the adoption of some of the latest aerodynamic design, aircraft metal alloy and carbon composite materials, Pedalectrics take advantage of the most efficient motive power technology, bicycles, as a starting point for a radically efficient vehicle.
The fundamental efficiency of the Ultra Light designs are further enhanced with optional power sources ranging from small fueled engines and batteries, to fuel cells.
