With the VX2, the Canadian company Velomtek has brought a new velomobile onto the market. Because of its high dead weight and comparatively poor aerodynamics, it is certainly not intended as a sports vehicle. With its emission-free drive, the small turning circle of less than 3m and a lockable boot, it is primarily intended to be a car substitute for the city, similar to the Podbike. It remains to be seen whether this model will ever find its way across the pond to us.
