It is even cuter than before and a lot of interest is being shown in it. It looks like a car but it is a human powered vehicle. The developer thought they would have it in production by mid 2021 but it didn’t happen. They are working on it and are hopeful they will be able to make it available soon. They are starting out with a quad (4 wheels) and with or without e-motor pedal assist made to comply with European laws meaning only 250 watts pedal assist only (no hand throttle). Later they plan on making a 3 wheel version with a 500 watt motor and a hand throttle as well. As for me, I would want a quad not 3 wheels as a quad is more stable and practical. I wonder if one could get a quad with a 500 watt motor and hand throttle.
Their FAQ page provides quite a lot of information. They don’t know yet what the price will be. For sure it has increased considerably since I first wrote about the Podride over 6 years ago. Their FACEBOOK page is still available as well as their website.
Everywhere the Podride is shown it draws a crowd. I am sure it would be the same once they are being sold. Did I mention that they are such a cute little thing? I wonder how the material will hold up over time? I wonder if the color will fade out? I might even like having one. If nothing else, it would be nice to have the protection it would offer from the weather elements. I wonder how it would do in high winds and gusts? It is not easy or inexpensive to bring such a product to market. I sure hope they make it and it becomes very successful. It is such a cute little thing. Did I mention that?

I was permanently disabled back in 1985 after being forced off of the road on my motorcycle and this podride is an answer to my prayers. I love it, thank you for producing it.
I am sorry to hear of your injury resulting in disability. And I am glad to hear that the Podride offers hope for your needs. However, you seem to be confused. I have nothing to do with Podride. I just simply wrote about it making others aware of it.
