With an electric motor located in its rear wheel and a high-performance battery giving it an operating range of 31 miles at a maximum speed of 20 miles per hour, the Geebee is a powerful, noiseless, eco-friendly vehicle.
The Geebee mobipod is a two-wheel personal transportation vehicle that is driven in the front-facing standing position. This more natural posture offers many ergonomic and practical advantages that facilitate daily work. The concept is based on the Geebee’s all-terrain capability. It can handle asphalt as well as loose or uneven ground. It is able to climb onto sidewalks or over obstacles so that you can venture anywhere, providing a sense of freedom.
