Next Generation of EVs:
Solar Electric Vehicles
In the next few years solar based electric vehicles will be hitting the U.S. and
EV Companies are coming up with EV vehicle,
which will have a inbuilt solar panels on top.
Sun's power will provide around 15-45 additional miles on a clear day.
These EV's will carry lithium batteries,
which can be charged using electricity for longer drives same like Standard EV.
For short commuters, the miles would be fueled by the solar energy which would be free of cost.
Dan Kammen, professor of energy at U.C. Berkeley says,
this technology will make a better financial sense for consumers.
