What is a pedicar?

Find out what a pedicar is and when it was first developed.

The pedicar was introduced in 1973 as a response to the concern of energy conservation. It was a pedal-powered, all-weather, one-passenger vehicle with straightline pedal action, disc brakes, five forward speeds plus neutral and reverse.

Costing about $550 in 1973, the vehicle was conceived as an alternative to the automobile. It had a speed of eight to 15 miles (12.924.1 kilometers) per hour and was developed mainly for fun use around parks, resorts, college campuses, country clubs and similar protected areas.
