Flintstones Technology Strikes - Presenting The Pedal Car
|   Sunday, December 20, 2015
We are sure that you remember the Flinstone family and their famous car where the passengers' feet put it into action. Well, Vilgard comes with such a concept transposed into the modern era in which we live.

Vilgard has presented the concept of a pedal car, extremely light, offering space for two passengers. It uses the operating principle of electric bicycles.
Electric cars seem to catch more courage in recent years. Their greatest problem remains the heavy batteries and reduced autonomy.
Electric bicycles are not facing the same problems and they are increasingly widespread in cities with an important habituation for bicycle riding.

An electric bike can help you climb an incline without getting tired and keep enough energy for situations in which you get tired of pedaling. The combination of the energy stored in the battery and the muscle power of the one cyclist gives an effective combination. And that's good not only for health, but also the environment.
Some enlightened minds have thought to implant such a combination on a four-wheeled vehicle too. Vilgard gave birth to a concept built almost completely of reinforced fiber glass, whose total weight is only 300 kg. It has room for two passengers to sit one behind the other, like a Renault Twizy. A place for a child seat and a mini luggage compartment can be found too.

For propulsion, it uses an electric motor whose energy can be provided either by a 5 kW battery or by the driver pedaling. Vilgard argues that the autonomy of the electric pedal car it is up to 96 kilometers (60 miles), a performance close to that of conventional electric vehicles.
This concept is something new, because there it is neither a car, or bike, taking its place somewhere in the middle. It was created using the DNA from an electric bicycle. It also represents an answer to urban mobility of the future.

Those from Vilgard have developed a new and fun way of transportation with this concept that offers one of the most powerful and dynamic driving experience that can be imagined, thus making this concept quite sustainable. Also, this vehicle will help convert a city in an area that is more livable and lively.

In terms of safety, the Vilgard concept has a particularly stable cabin, where passengers can feel fully safe in comparison to similar vehicles on the road. Vilgard technology protects it in the unlikely event of an accident. The technology used in case of an accident absorbs energy and helps reduce the impact on passengers.

First of all, Vilgard has excellent safety features which serve to prevent accidents actively. Four tires provide good stability on the road. Passengers are seated at eye level with other drivers, so they have a clear vision of the road conditions and traffic, and lastly, the Vilgard concept's front end is relatively small, which means that the probability of an accident is statistically low in comparison to other higher vehicles on the road.
