It May Look Like the World's Smallest Car, But Watch When the Door Opens

Is it a car? Is it a bicycle? We’ll, it’s kind of both in addition to being an absolutely amazing innovation. The PodRide is the creation of Swedish design engineer Mikael Kjellman. According to Little Things, Kjellman was looking for a bicycle that was weather-protected and offered more comfort than a regular bicycle ride.

He couldn’t find one, so he made one. He calls his PodRide prototype a “fun and practical bicycle-car.” When you see it you’ll want one too.

The PodRide has four wheels, can go up to 15 miles per hour and has a tight turning radius. It’s super small and weighs only 154 pounds, but is the same height as a regular car. It even has space in its rear for storage and can accommodate a bike trailer on its tail end. You can also open the windows for ventilation.

“The PodRide is narrow enough to fit on regular bike paths, and is classified as an e-bike in Sweden – that means no special licenses or insurance are required in order to use it,” according to gizmag.com. “In fact, it’s not even the only Swedish cloth-bodied four-wheeled cycle car we’ve seen.”

Kjellman had gotten dozens of comments from people since posting his PodRide video on YouTube. Everyone wants to buy one from him, including us!
