EcoRider CO2 balance, revisited

The last five days, Martin covered the first 300 kilometers of his EcoTour through Germany. The vehicle carried the pedaleur himself, luggage for a week and provided protection from heavy rain showers. Looking at other vehicles meeting these specs, how does the EcoRider compare?

Enter the competitors:

    
  BMW C1 motorbike
 Smart FourTwo CDI
 Sun EcoRider
 Power Source
 Gasoline Diesel Muscle/Electric power
 Consumption
 2.9 liters/100km
 3.2 liters/100km
 2.2KWh/100km
 CO2 emission
 77g/km 88g/km
 22g/km
 CO2 per person
 77g/km 44g/km 22g/km

 The CO2 emission of the EcoRider was calculated as if all the electric power would have been created by using a Diesel powered generator with an efficiency of 30%.

So even with homegrown inefficient power generation, using the EcoRider for dry trips with luggage up to 70km is better for the CO2 balance than everything else. And better for your health.
