Maybe. My bike weighs a bit more than a typical build at around 50kg (when I have it fully-loaded), so with steeper up and down and lower speeds, a lighter unfaired bike might have an advantage. I know that a fast velomobile such as the Quest has a lower CdA. A couple pilots have electrified their velomobiles, but I'm still waiting for an electrified version show up at MegaMonster.
I really wish somebody made a roto-molded polypropylene body for two wheel recumbents. They would be only a bit more aero than your soft shell, but could greatly improve the crash protection.
A single-track streamliner can be difficult to control in conditions most people would consider "mildly breezy". But, John Tetz (in the midwestern USA) built such a steamliner and even added a small electric motor system to his. I have no idea if he is still riding it much these days. He was into his 70s a few years ago.
