Podbike® is ready to launch their first product FRIKAR®, which is an electrically assisted four-wheeled and fully covered e-bike with room for cargo or a child. It offers an attractive, practical, safe, and sustainable alternative for the daily commute. It is placed between a regular e-bike and a small electric car.
As an e-bike, FRIKAR® can access both roads and bike infrastructure, and it does not require registration or driving license.

Currently, there are no ebike solutions in the market offering the same performance, features and user-experience that Podbike wants to bring to market.
