  • You don’t get wet - Lightweight hard body protects you from the elements.

  • An interior latch keeps the hatch securely closed while operating. An exterior keyed lock, locks the hatch when not in use.

Not driving your car to work will save over 2 tons of carbon dioxide yearly from polluting the planet.
