Human Powered Car

Human Powered Car

HumanCar is the world’s first practical human powered four passenger car.

Designed by Charles Greenwood, the vehicle is powered by a rowing-like motion that is converted into rotational power. Alternatively, built-in electric motor helps power the car when it is being operated by only one person.

Leaning motion from one or more occupants directs the car. Regenerative braking and an advanced power system enhance overall efficiency.

    If it really works with four rowers why didn’t they show it? Using the electric motor isn’t new.
