With the paradigm shift in photovoltaics away from pure ROI thinking, and with the upcoming move toward e-mobility, solar panels on car ports is a good example of the changing attitudes toward the objectives of going solar.
Solar Power Car 2030 - Conceptualized by Mihai Stamati, this solar powered car is big enough to allow 4 to 5 folks to ride comfortably. The roof is plastered with solar panels that juice up this spacious green vehicle. Steer it comfortably by a joystick and a few other control buttons on the front. This solar powered van is fitted with ergonomical seats and a table at the rear. With two motors on the rear, it can move at a slow speed, less than 30 kph, when extended.
