Penny Pelican Electric Cargo Bike

New York-based studio CW&T first caught our attention with their very cool TV Barrow, a cool stand that makes manoeuvring your television around the house a lot easier. Another of their awesome projects is this unique cargo bike. Named Penny Pelican (Penny as in penny farthing and Pelican as in the iconic hard case), the bike is equipped with a 1000W motor in the front hub, giving it a top speed of 23mph with a full load (80lb+). The bike has its pedals attached to a freewheel hub, so there are no gears and no chain, allowing the cargo area to span the entire space between the two wheels. All the components are custom machined so the bike can be disassembled and the geometry adjusted if needed. If you are interested in acquiring one, get in touch with CW&T. Build time is between 4 to 6 weeks and the price is $8000. watch the video below

Jaguar claims it will have a range from a single charge of 310 miles (meaning drivers with an average daily commute will only need to recharge the vehicle once a week), and will be able to accelerate from 0-62mph in about four seconds (meaning it will rival all but the very quickest of sports cars)...
