Getting the last mile

What is it?  Such vehicles must carry one person, to be able to drive a few kilometers on a single charge / refueling, be wearable in the subway and transported in the car.  And also – importantly – easy to manage. Skate, for example, is great, but ride it grandma can not.

 And if you can – sooner or later disintegrate on the steps for her skate will transport most of the last mile.

Automakers that the more intelligent, the trend is to understand and work in this direction. Progressed further than others, of course the Japanese, because the oldest smart. For example, Honda has released elektrotaburetku Uni-cub.

  Stool stands on one wheel thanks to gyroscopes from the robot Asimo (and someone else thought that a robot – a waste of money …), controlled hands-free – weight of the person.  Mileage per charge – 6 km, maximum speed walking – 6 km / h

I wonder what could go yunitsikl himself, on command from ayfonchika. And before that, a prototype called the Honda U3-X, was a bit different on the principle of action, but it is even more compact.  So that was hiding in the door trim mimimishnenkogo concept car Honda EN-V.

  That is, come, you open the door at the same time pulling his elektrotaburetku and pilish on, sitting on yunitsikle.

Or this.  In the supercar BMW i8 provide space for the transport of the last mile – under the rear window has two segway.  In the car they recharges the batteries from their little big car.Tom Cruise has arrived in this city – parked – took a scooter – went to the office.

Or the concept Opel Flextreme. It provides space for two Segway, and at once, and you will not find – in the rear bumper.  Segway, however, is difficult to lower the subway, and even harder to pull back – 50 kg of the same, against the Honda’s 10 kg.

And it will not get on the subway on a three-wheeled scooter, which is hidden in a large machine Geely McCar, taking up half the trunk there.  The Chinese, though, and in China, and a chip chop, and the flourishing of double transport systems are prepared.  In another embodiment, McCar show up with special folding wheelchair and bicycle in the trunk.

Yet there is a similar development called Suzuki Pixy + SSC – there are two wheeled personal capsules mikroavtobusike hidden. Go ahead. Toyota Winglet (I’m told that the Japanese COX).

 Almost Segway, only weighs 10-12 kg.  Cruising 10km (y Segway 40), the maximum speed of 6 km / h (20 in Segway), but it is artificially limited.  Ambush in the fact that the road scooter obviously do nothing, but on the sidewalk and in the room it will be at a higher speed is dangerous.

 Unlike the Segway, Winglet folded and can be worn with them.

Volkswagen Bike.e – round bike.  He’s so ugly creative, because it creates the circle and placed in a niche in the reserve.  Can be recharged from 220v wall outlet or car 12v, travels 20 km at a speed of 20 km / h, and then you can push legs pedalek not provided

BMW i Pedelec – the same. Folding elektrovelik for electric i3. Weighs 20 kg, 40 kg can travel in the trunk there is space for two such. However, to the detriment of luggage.  The Bavarians have made two “Pedeletsev” (gee-gee) for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

  Elektrolyzh are waiting for the 2014 Olympics.

By the way of elektrolyzhi. Nissan, together with the Institute of AIST made elektrolyzhi. Or electricity – very little information about this garbage. We only know that skiing can be connected and will skate type with rotating wheels.  This is for grandmas.

  For grandparents – you can disengage the half, the wheels will turn and lock the right skis for skating stroke. Oh, those Japanese.

Yamaha Deinonychus – folding elektrobayk with suspension and pedals, made in co-operation with Toyota.

You’ve got to say that their bikes are doing a lot of manufacturers – from Ford and sawdust to Porsche and Lambo. But the rest of this awkward design.  Typically, carbon or some other designer doroguschie great.

Although it is not necessary to be the automaker to hack chip. Here’s a product called Yikebike (I do not know how to spell it). 25 km / h, 10 km, together with 11.5 kg of batteries.Assembles in size spare wheel.

Cult and popular even in Moscow already has A-bike – bike completely bogomerzky, but folding and weighing 5.5 kg. There are similar Strida, a little more.  A-bike invented Sinclair – the one which we are all grateful for the computer ZX Spectrum (here the author wept a little.)

Well, in general, folding bikes produces a lot of who.  Brompton, Moulton, Dahon, Gocycle, Velomini – this type of well-known American brands, plus other taiwan and china, and more than a hundred companies.  Fold with varying degrees of creativity, some have a motor, typically weigh 10-15 kg.

 Sovetskogo KAMA weighed 21 pounds, if that.
