I think this is a really good idea and can’t understand why it hasn’t been rushed into production, well actually I can…
Our Governments and Oil Industries would stand to loose huge amounts of money, either in Tax and Duty or in the sale of the black liquid gold itself.
But this is no excuse people, I know it’s expensive to develop or manufacture and may be even more complicated than I can possibly comprehend, but it does make perfect sense…well in theory anyway. Any big Companies out there with a few £’s to spare, make this the next big thing !!
We are all being crippled by the economy at the moment, what with Oil prices on the up, Fuel prices steadily rising…we need something to help us off the old Crude. Electric cars are a good idea in principle, but the hook -up charging points are a bit few and far between, they also take ages to charge up, but then only capable of short journeys.
Solar powered cars should be the way forward, all someone needs to do is have the vision, power and the resources to create an everyday solar powered vehicle and get it into production for a reasonable price.
Or even if someone could develop some sort of kit or way of converting the normal roadcar to run off sunlight or even some kind of Hybrid to help save fuel.
And of course the big bonus of doing this, saving the environment and a massive reduction in pollution !!
These above cars are specially made for the solar races that take place all over the world, the most famous one is the World Solar Challenge.
These vehicles combine Aerospace, bicycle and alternative energy technologies.
But the technology within these cars would need to be advanced further to be practical and affordable to everyday drivers.
These look fantastic, but still need further development to reach their full potential, plus they will be horrendously expensive….way out of the average Joe’s reach.
