Together with the latest technologies for obtaining solar energy, the machine-building industry is also developing. After all, making a full-fledged car that would work not from fuel that is harmful to nature, but from the environmentally friendly energy of the sun is a matter of principle for many companies. And each one invents something of her own for this..

Various concepts from the World Solar Challenge exhibition
Every year Australia hosts an exhibition of the best vehicles, the main fuel of which is solar energy. Many companies from all over the world strive to show the most unusual cars possible. It is possible that the cars of the future will look like this.
Solar camper van by verdier, 2006
This minivan for a variety of trips allows you to transfer the accumulated solar energy to your needs. What you need on a hike, where there is a lot of sun, but there is absolutely no electricity to charge your mobile phone.

The car looks just brilliant, but not everything is so good with the characteristics - only 30 kilometers at a speed of 110 km / h.
In the next part I will tell you about bicycles, scooters and other two-wheeled solar monsters, the energy of the sun came in handy there too.
