LEV's are no joke. They have many uses and one towing some kind of boat is perfectly within the realm of possibility. But ones like the POD seem like overkill as people movers, they remind me of the ones at the beach that tourists cram in to and ride the boardwalk. Certainly not as cool as the ones you drink beer on while pedaling.
One of the e bike companies that has done well importing Chinese bikes and branding them RAD is making a tricycle platform that can be used to carry cargo and they also have a Pedi Cab system for it. I think it is going to sell for $1500 because that is what all their bikes to date have sold for. Pretty savvy idea if you ask me. Something as simple as that could replace a lot of auto/truck use.
