The modern city is facing a massive transport problem. Combustion powered cars fill the streets and for many people, the daily commute is unimaginable without a vehicle. The answer is clear: our cities must be transformed from the ground up, with a major focus on walking and public transport; but that won’t happen overnight. The “Mongoose” is a hybrid bicycle and electric motorbike that offers an all-around solution for modern, urban passenger transport. Powered by muscle power and electric energy, the vehicle can ensure maximum freedom of movement for the individual while remaining future-proof.
