GoblinAero – Human Power / Power Assist Model at Goblin Motors from $4995 standard human powered to the $6445 motor assisted with all the bells and whistles.
GoblinAero is a human-powered or motor assisted velomobile from Goblin Motors that will be available February 2009. This could be an awesome solution to the once again rising gas prices – and you know it will only go higher – maybe much higher. (which might not be so bad when you thing about it) The motor assisted option Goblin has either a Honda 35cc or 50cc engine which can give you up to 150 miles a gallon. Great for errands such as trips to the supermarket – the rear truck can hold 5 bags of groceries. Maybe even your daily commute to work. Can get up to 30 mph on a flat surface and is able to drive up steep hills with no problem – tested on the 9000ft Mt. Lemmon in Tucson, Az. It has 8″ disc brakes and as this vehicle is such a head-turner most people will likely take notice and give you lots of room which should enhance safety. If we could only melt down some hummers and recycle them into these!
