This North Carolina-based company might be making the safest, most fuel-efficient vehicles on the planet – the electric assist, pedal-driven, solar-powered ELF tricycle designed specifically for urban commuting.

Organic Transit’s idea was to create a super safe, highly visible vehicle with a weatherproof shell that can excel in city traffic. The result, according to co-founder and former automotive engineer, Rob Cotter, is a comfortable and easy-to-ride trike that can go anywhere a standard bike goes. “This is a very pleasant, pedal-able vehicle that has the ability to completely change the way we think about bike commuting,” said Cotter.
