The ELF costs $5,000, and (with a composite body and polycarbonate windshield) weighs just 130 pounds. Like certain mopeds, you pedal it to get started, then twist the handlebar for electric assist. Some 20 mph is possible; 30 if you pedal a lot. Range is 20 miles, more if you carry optional extra batteries (as Stewart does). The rooftop solar panel can charge the ELF in something like seven hours, but the battery is removable and can charge from house current in anything from one to six hours (depending on the amperage of your charger).
