Solar powered vehicles by CCRES



CROATIAN CENTER of RENEWABLE ENERGY SOURCES

solar powered vehicles


the past few years have seen a dramatic rise in the popularity of alternate energy sources,
particularly solar power. the technology which directly converts the sun's rays into electricity is proving
to be one of the more commonly used 'green' energies in the transportation markets. as research into
solar power continues to accelerate and designers are busy trying to challenge peoples ideas of how
vehicles that use it can look. over the next three pages is an eclectic selection of vehicles that use
'reliable' solar technologies.


cars, trucks and carts



‘eclectic’ by venturi, 2008
the roof of this three person car is lined with solar panels, which can produce enough energy to travel 7 KM
at almost 50 KM/H. the wind turbine on the roof of the vehicle can fuel the car for a journey twice as long.

these two solar vehicles, produced by honda were made to compete in the world solar challenge
an event which sees solar racers compete in australia every year.
