A car driven by the sun and wind

Venturi Eclectic: sun and wind only.

The sun and wind as an alternative to automotive fuel. This is not fiction with a car created by French designers and constructors. Solar panels on the roof of the car will allow you to drive about 50 km, and if there is no sun, the car will set in motion the wind.

Although the idea of ​​green cars is not new, French Venturi eclectic self-powered will surprise even connoisseurs of ecological transport. Advertised as a fully autonomous vehicle, Eclectic does not actually require any fixed power outlets to recharge the battery or fuel. The car moves thanks to a small electric motor with a power of 22 hp. (16 kW). The battery is charged from solar panels located on the roof with a total area of ​​2.5 square meters.

Designed by Eclectic for daily trips in cities, it looks more like maps than a real car. The author of the idea of ​​an unusual "green" car Sasha Lakich (Sacha Laki) Describes an unusual vehicle as a "modern, autonomous and intelligent car."

When Venturi Eclectic does not move, it automatically starts recharging the nickel-metal hydride battery from solar panels. A fully charged battery is enough for a trip at a speed of 50 km / h for a distance of up to 50 km. This is quite enough for city trips.

Venturi Eclectic is also suitable for regions where there are not many sunny days. On the roof of the car there is a small folding windmill connected to a miniature electric generator. The power of the wind generator is enough to drive another 15 km after the battery is dead. A quadruple Eclectic weighs just 350 kilograms and costs 24,000 euros.

Recently, we talked about another "green" car - solar-powered urban tricycle tandem.
