It is very difficult to get a nice looking velomobile prototype into a standard working production. There have been many start-ups with little to no money trying to start a new buisness in the velomobile area as same as some with stronger financing, but many have just failed. And Evovelo is one of the good examples. Here is the announcement:

Dear friends,

We regret to announce that, after almost 8 years of development and efforts to offer a simple solar autonomous alternative to private transportation, we have decided not to continue with the evovelo project.

Due to the enormous difficulties in raising funds and the current climate of uncertainty, we have made the decision to put the project up for sale, as it has not been possible for us to successfully complete the production of the first  units.

We are hopeful that maybe another company will be able to fulfill what we began and we are open to proposals.

We are very proud of the whole community that has been created around our project and we sincerely hope that other alternatives will emerge that will inspire us as much as  did.

Best regards,
evovelo Team
