The Twike

The TWIKE is a zero-emission pedal electric hybrid vehicle.  Manufactured in Germany by FineMobile GmbH, the TWIKE is powered by a 230 Volt AC motor that gets its juice through an inverter connected to 2, 3, 4 or 5 battery packs that put out  353 Volts DC at 4.8 Amp Hours.  Top speed is 55 mph with a range of 70 - 200 miles.

The TWIKE is an ideal vehicle for in-town trips and commuting to work.  It can be recharged while the driver is at work and upon returning home in about 2 hours using a standard 220 volt outlet.
