Eggasus Takes the Personal Electric Vehicle to a New Aesthetic Level

Little personal transportation pods seem like they belong in a science fiction movie (and I have seen many), but a US-based company actually seems to be trying to make them into a reality this upcoming fall. The name of the vehicle is Eggasus (no, really), and it is, in short, a personal electric vehicle. It’s also nine kinds of adorable.

What’s More American Than One Person Per Vehicle?

The Eggasus is a neat little zero-emission, single-passenger commuter vehicle. It apparently comes in any color you want, if you don’t like bright yellow – which is actually not a bad choice for those of us who like to be visible to other occupants of the road. The vehicle, as you might have gathered from the picture above, balances on three wheels.

The target market for the Eggasus is supposed to be the current scooter-and-moped crowd, which I’m not sure is the right way to go. While its lack of emissions and small size are probably both appealing to current two-wheeler commuters, the extra wheel and enclosed-ness of the Eggasus will probably not appeal to that particular market segment (think of all the bicyclists, scooterists, and bikers you know – they’re on those vehicles because they like the experience).

Technically It’s Probably Sound

The team over at Eggasus says that it’s been working for decades on alternative methods of urban transportation (which might also explain the exterior pod design). The electric motor powering the vehicle is located on the front wheel. Although, Eggasus has not yet released information regarding charge time or any other official specs (I’d like to know how fast it is, really).

The part of the Eggasus that I really like – aside from the fact that it’s zero emissions, because who hates vehicles with no emissions? – is that it actually is enclosed. Totally, fully enclosed. The people more likely to buy the Eggasus may not be the current scooter-and-bicyclists, but rather those who want a more economical way to get around in the city without being exposed to inclement weather. The instrumental display panel in front is pretty neat, too.

Does this look like something you’d ride to work in? Let us know in the comments, below.
