LSEV – L3E / L6E

tk1chcrLSEV targets: last mile cargo bikes, for resorts & hotels, food truck vendors, taxi tuk-tuks.citkar-cit-kar-loadster (Custom).pngBecause the Loadster is classified as Pedelec25, it classifies as bicycle in Europe. This means it does not require a driver’s license and can be driven in parks or on cycle lanes. CitKar is also working on a speed pedelec version with 40 kph, with 1,500 Wh batteries. The Loadster can carry up to 300 kilos and got a box with 422 litres volume. The cargo pedelec weighs 60 kilos including the plastic cover. The pedals are in the middle of the vehicle, leaving the chain uncovered between the legs of the rider, who is in a semi-lying position. Apart from Brose, Citkar has managed to get Magura and Enviolo on board. The startup wants to assemble their Loadster in Berlin’s belt, that is Brandenburg, but is still looking for more investors. Preorders are open though and Kitcar wants to begin building their cargo pedelec before the year’s end. Prices will start around 7,200 euros, indicating a rather professional target group. China Low Speed EVs – under 1500$, with acid batteries. Bellow – Legislative requirements for the L6e vehicle.44514317_246149446056253_1046729155472785408_n.png44532952_762648264070928_7961867471172927488_nreg1reg2.JPGreg344728472_1957587100985653_9173138760785723392_o.jpgTABBY EVO is an open source hardware platform for electric vehicles prototypes / pre-series / manufacturing.

An average-trained driver can contribute 100 to 200 W through pedalling power. At a speed of 50 km/h, this corresponds to about 10 to 20% of the total energy demand. The pedal drive is intended to assist the motor but not as the sole power source of the TWIKE. The principle of combining pedal drive and an electric motor as well as the handling is quite simple. Both drives go directly to the drive shaft: The pedals through a chain, the motor via the gearbox. The speed can be set by Cruise Control. When you pedal, the electronics restrict the motor to the exact power you place on the pedals and the range increases. twike
