1) Low carbon footprint

Since velomobiles do not rely on fossil fuels, they have a significantly lower carbon footprint compared to motorized vehicles. They contribute to reducing the overall demand for oil and decreasing carbon dioxide emissions, helping combat climate change.

For more and more people, it is becoming increasingly important in their overall ethical balance how much CO2 they emit and to what extent they can contribute to slowing down global warming.

2) Human-powered

Velomobiles are primarily powered by human effort, utilizing pedal power to move. This means they don’t produce direct emissions, contributing to a reduction in air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions compared to vehicles that rely on fossil fuels.

3) Energy efficiency

Velomobiles are incredibly energy-efficient. The streamlined design and enclosed shell reduce air resistance, allowing riders to cover longer distances with less effort. This efficiency means that riders can travel relatively long distances using only their own muscle power.

4) Local transportation

Velomobiles are well-suited for short to medium-distance commutes and errands. They promote the use of local infrastructure, reduce the need for motorized transportation for short trips, and can help alleviate traffic congestion.

6) Noise reduction

Velomobiles produce minimal noise while you are cycling with it, contributing to quieter streets and neighborhoods, especially in urban areas.

7) Resource efficiency

The manufacturing and maintenance of velomobiles generally require fewer resources compared to cars. This includes lower material and energy inputs, resulting in a lower overall environmental impact.

8) Promotion of active lifestyle

Encouraging the use of velomobiles promotes physical activity and an active lifestyle. This has both personal health benefits and reduces the need for sedentary transportation modes.
