The world is fast losing its natural resources and it is time we sit up straight and pay attention. To make the most of the natural resources available to us, we need to turn towards the solar power because it’s always available in plenty. The solar powered cars can give our lives a new dimension. The solar concept cars are the future of the generations to come. They are still in the making and getting tested in every sort of ways. Auto makers are continuously trying to improve the capacity of cars to keep the solar power stored and used later on. This way the crisis of global pollution can be sorted and with the advent of better solar cars the expenditure on fuel will go down.
This concept car looks like some fancy chariot of the Greek gods. The solar panels have been fitted like a Chinese fan with the roof and make it look amazingly stylish. You can move the solar panels and fold them while you are driving. It is capable of generating sufficient power not only for its own use but also for your home and gadgets. The only negative point for this car is the price which is sky high.
The Peugeot Omni is definitely a futuristic sports car that looks cool in its white and black avatar. The specialty of this car is that it can move sideways at an average speed of 5 km/hr. The Omni uses solar power but would be too costly if turned into reality. Peugeot needs to work on the technology some more to bring down the cost. It has been made for two passengers.
Adam Danko has designed this beautiful and compact solar powered car which has electric engine. It gets power from the sun or can be charged with a plug at home. The speed of this concept car is being doubted.
This solar powered car is a winner with 30% efficient cell conserving capacity and gives us a 63mph speed, which is not too little. The solar panels of this car can generate 1.8 kilowatt power.
This is the brainchild of a MIT team. It is supposed to deliver 1200 kilowatts of energy and a surprising 90 mph speed on roads.
The small, black and yellow solar bug needs only 3-4 hours under the sun to take you 60 miles away. It gives a speed of 35 mph.
The solar concept cars have to go a long way both literally and figuratively. They are right now too costly and fancy but with some more brain storming they can become affordable. The designs are futuristic but we should pay attention to comfort as well.
