Electric Pedal Hybrid High Speed: The RAHT

by: Moon Apple
electric pedal hybrid high speed  the raht | Upload

I'm a big fan of the Organic Transit ELF—a pedal electric hybrid that Lloyd believes could replace a car for many people. But every time we write about it, somebody comments that it's simply too expensive and, or it shouldn't be allowed on bike lanes. I can only imagine what people are going to say about Kronfeld Motors' RAHT racer.

Electric Pedal Hybrid High Speed: Commuting to work and getting a workout 

  • It's primarily an electric vehicle, but with a pedal function that you can use to get a  workout and recharge the battery (a bit!) and get a workout.
  • The makers claim it can hit 140 km, and once it hits production will be highway legal.
  • It has a range of 190 km city driving and 115 km at highway speeds.
  • About the pedal aspect. It's likely to add 5-10% in terms of range if you're working hard.
  • The production version will have room for a passenger and luggage, and significant improvements in terms of safety.
  • It's currently listed at $24,000, and you can pre-order it with a $500 deposit.

Electric Pedal Hybrid: Let The 'Fighting' In The Comments Begin.

Alright, let the fighting in the comments begin. But wait-before we all get into the usual 'rich man's toy' versus 'best idea ever debate, let's remember something: Just because it's not a vehicle that you would drive doesn't mean there isn't a sensible market for it. At the same time, indeed, you could now get a 350-km range, four-seat electric car for not that much more. And folks have been waiting a long time for their not-dissimilar-looking gas-powered Elios. But this is being marketed to people who enjoy the experience of cycling but need to get places faster and like the idea of commuting to work and getting a workout at the same time. And I can see the appeal in that.

I, for one, can't imagine myself springing for something like this. I've already established that I can get pretty far, pretty fast on a regular e-bike, and I can go far further than I ever really should have in my used Nissan Leaf. But I do think this would be a blast to ride in. And I can think of people who would prefer this over either a motorcycle commute or stooping to the conventionality of a regular car.

I wish Kronfeld Motors all the luck in the world. Who knows, with rising gas prices, they may not even need it.

Now, please be nice in the comments!

WhatsOrb embraces innovations. Electric bicycles are a ‘transit innovation’ from which the battery is still a hazard for the environment. With mining lithium and cobalt is often child labor involved. Currently, a conventional bicycle without motor and battery is still the environmental way of transportation.

I'm interested in everything that has to do with sustainability. My house is solar powered and I have my own water supply and filtering system.  I grow my own vegetables and fruit. Most of the time I go on the road by bicycle and for long distances I use public transport.
