This 3-Wheel Electric Scooter Runs on Solar Power and Will Easily Get You Out of Traffic Jams


This is the BICAR, a three-wheel electric scooter that runs on solar power and designed for sharing using a shared mobility program. It was developed by a research team at the Zurich University of Applied Science, led by Adrian Burri and Hans-Jörg Dennig. The fully electric-powered scooter goes up to 28mph (45 km/h).

The BICAR’s energy self-sufficiency is guaranteed with solar power and includes a back-up system with swappable batteries and newly-created Battery Swap Stations. Riders can use a mobile app to “geo-localize” a BICAR or a Battery Swap Station, make a reservation, lock/unlock the BICAR and use their mobile phone and software as an information board and navigation tool while driving, according to the team.

BICAR-sharing for short and medium distance traveling within a city is ideal for businesses that are in search of a sustainable, space-saving, and cost-efficient solution. Parking is super-easy and its size also makes for navigating traffic jams seamless and less stressful.
