"CT Velo" is a recumbent bicycle which offers two means of propulsion. It has electric light batteries which are the main leading power. When they run out of electricity the driver can charge them by using the bicycle pedals and gears. CT Velo offers something more - it can be folded, thus taking the space of a wheelchair. By this way it could be taken at home or everywhere people go. CT Velo doesn't need fuel or parking space. It has simple construction and design and therefore - it's cheap for production and maintenance. It could avoid traffic jams and at the same time be very stable at high speed because it's able to change the length of its back track. Its enforced construction is made from steel and offers enough passive safety. The cover material for the body is plastic, lined with insulation.
CtVelo has won first prize in the Auto(R) Design Competition for hpv's organized by GrabCAD.
