Marvelo SKR Velomobile

Check this out. The link at the top will connect you to a new blog with a prototype velomobile under development.  Looks like a very promising and well put together design. Stay to date on this one. Looks like a winner already. And they already have a plan to reproduce it using vacuum technology.

Blue Sky Designs Speeder Velomobile Kit

Here is a new product from Blue Sky Designs is a speeder velomobile kit.  The price of this kit is 850 dollars with 200 dollars shipping. It is designed to fit over a standard recumbent trike. This could be a great shell for a velomobile and you can still choose the trike of your choice. Another benefit is the fact that this velomobile looks as if the shell is easily removable in case you wanted to ride without the shell on. Check out the link above if you would like to have more information.

Heres a new one for you. The people at Pannonrider have come up with a new velomobile of their own.

As you can see from the website, not much information is available at the moment. They have a contact button so you can ask them how much, when and any other information you may want. Below is a little info I pulled from their website.

The target of the project PannonRider 2 is to create a philanthropic,environmentally friendly vehicle - driven by alternative, constantly renewable energy - that doesn't use fossil energy from the environment and doesn't contamine it with stack gas.
In addition, persently doesn't exist a HPV that operates without uploading frequently some kind of fossil energy source, or without electricity produced by fossil energy. Our goal is to stop this kind of energy dependence. To reach this goal, we would like to put on the vehicle alternative energy sources that are able to cover the energy demand which is necessary to make the vehicle operate. So the vehicle won't need service stations.
The basic parameters of the hybrid HPV driven by alternative energy:

Emission of harmful substance:                0 glkm
Top speed:                                                50 km/h
Range:                                                      70 km
Weight:                                                      30 kg
Capacity:                                                   120 kg
Gradability:                                                20 %
Lifetime:                                                     min. 10 years

- Zero emission from the primary energy production to final use
- Network independent alternative energy production and storage on the vehicle
- Human and other alternative energy use in the drive train
- Application of environmentally friendly, recyclable materials in each unit
- Electronic energy and drive management
- Ultra lightweight, yet secure body, which protect passengers from all external impacts
- Ergonomic interior
- Undercarriage: in the font and at the rear, damped, adjustable suspension
- Braking: braking energy, regenerating braking
- Fits today's environmental, security and quality demand
- Attractive design
- Low exceeding height, easy to get in for PRM
