This remarkably simple, carbon free car, the Imagine PS is in part powered with an electric motor, capable of 100 kph (60 mph) on the flat and 50 kph uphil.
"The hand-cranked low mass vehicle (LMV) was developed by engineer Professor Charles Samuel Greenwood, who has been working on human-powered vehicles for over four decades, and has now developed a street legal sedan version carrying four people.
