"Walk in the sun", sang Gianluca Grignani some time ago. A song that would take on a new meaning with the user experience offered by the Sunox Screecher.
This eco-friendly four-wheeled vehicle with pedal propulsion and solar energy is a new way of getting around in personal mobility. And before you think it's a useless thing, know that Sunox Screecher can accelerate from zero to 24 kilometers per hour in just five seconds.
Solar-powered personal mobility
Sunox Screecher it is a personal mobility device (PMD) that is also flexible in its propulsion methods. It can be operated by pedaling, with the assistance of one of the two motors or a combination of both.
Don't turn your nose upside down: personal mobility devices like this will become popular everywhere. From the streets of San Francisco, to retirement communities in Calabria to the mountainous regions of China.
Sunox Screecher, a "Caddy" of the third millennium
The Sunox Screecher will make navigating large university campuses, large pedestrian areas or even home-to-work much easier. For journeys that would take a long time to walk, it will be much easier to reach your destination in a solar-powered vehicle.
Battery and autonomy
The Screecher is a perfectly cost-effective, practical and zero-emission solution for many transportation needs. From company site I read that it has a 12,8Ah 48V Li-ion battery, which can be charged simply via a wall socket.
It fully recharges in about 6 hours, and each charge lasts up to 60 kilometers in pedal assist mode. Cycling without the use of motors and batteries can take you further than ever.
Dimensions and specifications
The characteristic of this sort of Caddy is the presence of a (removable) canopy covered by solar panels, which also cover the rear service box behind the driver. This helps to collect more solar energy and push the batteries a little further.
The frame of the Sunox Screeher measures 81 x 177,8 x 162,5 cm (32 x 70 x 64 in) and weighs approximately 63,5 kg (140 lbs).
Sunox Screecher has been tested on a variety of soils. It can provide a relatively smooth ride with the shock absorbing suspension, allowing for travel on paved or gravel roads, forest trails, beaches, etc.
The LCD display has several functions: odometer, speedometer, cruise control enable, driving mode, assistance level, battery charge levels and more.
Prices and availability
The latest model from Sunox Screecher is currently in production to order with units shipped worldwide at a price of approximately $ 4300. Its solar operational capability is extremely valuable in a world where clean transportation is only in its early stages.
