Solar Cars, Galore! Via Moss Solar Vehicles

Perhaps not the Ford C-Max Solar Energi, but interesting nonetheless. The Indian solar vehicles below are quite fun, and I assume that they could genuinely be practical in some parts of India… and elsewhere in the world.

While solar vehicles are still rather more of a curiosity than a practical transportation solution — for most purposes anyways — the technology is slowly improving. And, for that matter, it is/could-be well-suited to certain specific environments…

  • I’m really enjoying watching the different directions that technology is taking, great times

    An electric bicycle built for four, or two plus shoppingbags, that can charge itself? Makes a lot of sense to me. Especially when most trips are less than 20 miles.
    Perfect, if they were cheap enough that you could afford a longer range car as well.

      The problem will be to slow traffic down so drivers of these light solar vehicles aren’t intimidated by tonnes of steel hurtling by.

    LoL that Solar No 1 appears to be located in Udaipur (in northern india). I went through there and stopped in Udaipur for an afternoon. Neat that it will be lugging tourists around without creating any emissions…good stuff.
