Re: Quadracycles

I would expect something that looks more like an earth wet suit than the Michelin man and I would expect electric power with human pedalling only for boost or when subject to unscheduled discharge of batteries.

For mars tracks just might be the choice to design with rather than wheels.
Some sort of transmission and generator setup to allow for direct drive or generator mode for the electric hybrid would also work well on earth as well.
