What happens when you merge a car and a bike?

Imagine if you could somehow merge a small car and a bicycle, well a company by the name of Organic Transit already has. Meet the ELF, a solar and pedal hybrid vehicle powered by you and the sun. The ELF comes with a 48v 16AH battery and a 750 watt motor capable of achieving up to 20 MPH without peadaling and up to 30 MPH with pedaling on flat terrain. Charging the vehicle takes 2.5 hours when plugged in or 7 hours in direct sunlight with the integrated solar panel. It is available in one, two and three seater models. The best part about the ELF is it is legally considered a bicycle, so it can be used on bike paths, parks and sidewalks and requires no gas, license, registration or insurance.
