SUMMARY: Wherever our products are used, the people, the community, and the planet are cleaner and healthier. A solar/pedal hybrid, the ELF is the most efficient vehicle on the planet, achieving the equivalent of 1800 mpg. Fully enclosed, the 2 passenger ELF provides weather protection, safety, and a 550lb payload.
PROBLEM SPACE: "Society is addicted to cars, which cause environmental damage and health issues. The result:
+ The destruction of a livable climate and the extinction of untold number of species
+ High cost of car ownership
+ Lack of mobility for elderly & disabled
+ Gridlock/parking issues in cities, on corporate/college campuses
+ Obesity, asthma, diabetes
Many people would prefer to ride a bike instead of a car, but they want:
+ Weather protection
+ Help climbing hills
+ Room for groceries and a passenger
+ To avoid falling over
+ To avoid sweating on the way to work
ELFs are currently utilized worldwide to:
1. Replace a second family car
2. Mitigate carbon/address climate change
3. Make local deliveries
4. Provide independence and mobility to the disabled
5. Create ELF-sharing programs
6. Travel short trips or take a cross-country journey
7. Provide community security within College Campuses/Police Departments/City Municipalities
8. Address weight loss/fitness/health issues
9. Provide Recreation/Resort/Vacation Spot touring
10. Provide power generation in rural areas or during outages
With 800 ELFs built in the USA and distributed worldwide, Organic Transit customers have made a significant impact mitigating almost 6,000 tons of CO2 in the past 3 years."
SOLUTION: "The ELF benefits from a micro supply chain and is ultra-efficient. Made from recycled & recyclable materials, there is no paint used in making an ELF. The entire weight is 160 lbs, so the resources required approximate that of 2 car seats. The manufacturing footprint is literally a fraction of building an automobile, while a 10K square foot facility could produced 1000 units a year.
A Carbon Life Cycle Analysis by Duke University showed that 72% of the CO2 created by the ELF occurred during its transport to the customer - that is on par with a pallet of water and far less than a pallet of ice cream. Except that afterwards the ELF continues to diminish its own carbon footprint.
How the ELF helps:
+ Mitigates 6.3 tons of CO2 per year, the equivalent of planting 900 trees
+ Three ELFs can fit in one parking space
+ Riders become much healthier
+ Solar panels recharge batteries in 8 hours; can be plugged in for 2
+ Much safer than conventional bicycles
+ Able to access bike paths
+ Far greater environmental impact than a solar home at a fraction of the cost
+ Create jobs in the Green Economy"
