This solar-powered cargo bike with forward-thinking Cybertruck DNA is a safe ride for a dystopian future
The future is uncertain with environmental issues staring us straight in the eye. Thus, we are all looking at a reality where breathing clean air will be a privilege. Naturally, the design of the bikes will turn around to a more conservative approach to keep up. This motorcycle envisaged for such a dystopian future therefore takes on its full meaning.
Ideally, two-wheelers are meant to induce the adrenaline rush as the gust of air pushes hair back (i.e. if you’re not wearing a helmet) and blows frantically in all directions. The blood rush of accelerating on open roads and zipping past passers-by at high speed is bliss. Over the years however, a new kind of bike design has burst onto the scene – the closed form factor. This shape reduces aerodynamic drag and makes more sense for bikes that need to save power for better mileage on a single charge.

This stylish solar-powered cargo bike is inspired by closed-bike design. Plus, he looks more like a Cybertruck-influenced shape and skin. This bit gives the bike a futuristic appeal, suited to a dangerous world, where breathing clean air is a luxury for most, as the air is contaminated with harmful pollutants and chemicals. So it’s much better to be cocooned in a safe enclosure that has more than just novelty. The enclosed enclosure acts as a perfect base for the solar panels on top to recharge the electric battery.
Designer Puneet Nagi envisions it as a cargo bike for hauling groceries, medium-sized luggage, or anything that needs to be kept in a safe place. A heavy downpour is no obstacle for the Solar Cargo Bike as it rides at safe speeds to get things done without having much of a carbon footprint compared to four-wheeled vehicles.
