AFreeCar.org envisions bringing ultra-low-cost electric transportation to emerging economies that lack such an option, says founder Chris Borroni-Bird.

The concept would use an electrified bicycle-trailer system that could be made from local materials and powered by a pre-packaged tech kit that provides a battery, motor and solar panel.

The vehicles themselves could be owned and operated as a service by a local entity such as a hospital, supermarket or dealership. Borroni-Bird notes that such transportation could be implemented quickly and without relying on public utilities, central governments or energy companies.
