Electric Bike On Solar: A Bicycle Tesla Mix

by: Sharai Hoekema

Most people associate proper sustainable and green transport with reliable methods of getting from A to B: by foot, horse, or bicycle. In recent years, some innovative means of transportation were added to this list - including the electric bikes of Elon Musk’s Tesla.

Electric Bike On Solar

So, what do you get when you cross the trustworthy two-wheeler with a Tesla? That is the question that Danish engineer Jesper Frausig pondered before coming up with the Solar Bike: a fully electric bike that runs entirely on renewable solar power. Using the power of the sun, it will take its rider wherever he needs to go using the ancient-old allure of the bike - but without the heavy work.

The Solar Bike: Mix Between A Bicycle And A Tesla

Solar Wheels

Can you charge an electric bike with a solar panel?
The solar panels are on both sides of the bike or wheels, so that it can capture solar energy even in motion. When plugged in, the bike can fully charge in two hours. This gives it a range of about 100 km (62 miles) in pedal assist mode.

While it is designed to resemble a regular bicycle as closely as possible, the electric bike on solar has specially engineered wheels, fitted with very efficient photovoltaic cells - so solar panels attached to the wheels. The energy that it generates is directly transmitted to the battery when the electric bike is stationary. Hence, the Solar Bike does not require any additional, long-waiting charging time, as it will automatically start charging when it is parked.

Then, while in motion, this stored energy is used to power the motor. And those who worry that it might not suffice will be surprised to learn that speeds range from 25 km/hour to 50 km/hour. Practically, depending upon the net sunshine, the solar cells might provide sufficient power to have the bike run for anywhere between 2 km and 25 km per day.

What is an electric assist bike?
Generally speaking, e-bikes are bicycles with a battery-powered “assist” that comes via pedaling and, in some cases, a throttle. When you push the pedals on a pedal-assist e-bike, a small motor engages and gives you a boost, so you can zip up hills and cruise over tough terrain without gassing yourself

No word yet as to the planned release date for the bike. In fact, since the ‘big launch’ of the concept in the summer of 2015, it has been somewhat quiet around Frausig’s team. Not to worry: the basic idea is good and has already been adopted by many other bike manufacturers. This makes it only a matter of time before the first solar-powered bike will hit the market.

Before you go!

Cool bike, how much power from those panels are you getting?

Dear Ross,

Thanks for your reply.

Jesper Frausig (Denmark) is the designer of the bike. Unfortunately, I can not give you an answer on your question. Maybe you can send a mail directly to Mr. Frausig or send him a message on https://www.facebook.com/591712644533665/posts/solar-bike-designed-by-jesper-frausig-in-denmarkhttpstwittercomsolarempowered_st/763396484031946/
have a good 'ride'.

Kind regards,

Hans van der Broek
