Another Sinclair C5?

Electrike bike

This is the prototype for a new all electric recumbent vehicle from Japan, the genesis EV-X7. With a claimed 92 mph top speed and 110 mile range per charge at a projected $2100 price it somehow looks like a Sinclair C5 on steroids or perhaps everything that that early attempt should have been though I imagine that the low height might still be seen as a safety worry still though it’s clearly a more substantial vehicle will much less of the snigger factor that greeted the C5 when it was launched.
