Rahtmobile working prototype harnesses electrical and cycling power to achieve highway speeds

Founded in 2011, Rahtmobile is on a mission to perfect and make available “a vehicle that delivers an incredible rush AND an ecological benefit at the same time.”

Since the company’s signature product —the hybrid electric-and cycle-powered Raht Racer—was recently named a finalist in the 2015 Clean Energy Trust Challenge and can now achieve a highway speed of up to 90mph, the team may soon be able to upgrade to ‘mission: accomplished.’

Rahtmobile describes its innovative vehicle as a “human-hybrid powerbike” and an “amplifier,” as it uses “motor, battery and other technology [to amplify] your pedal power, or torque, into breathtaking, adrenaline pumping speed.”
