This solar car concept combines the freedom of a motorcycle with the comfort of a car creating new and more efficient ways of transportation and parking.
The car is constantly producing electricity through its external solar panels, the energy can then be stored in the battery or alternatively (if hocked up to the grid) used as payment for parking in highly populated city areas.
In-wheel electric motors frees up a lot of space where the combustion engine, suspension and transmission would usually go.
It is a one, alternatively two person commuting vehicle with the possibility to fold the back seat over creating a large trunk space. The overall dimensions are close to that of a smart car but has a lower center of gravity making it visually safer which is one of the main reasons why more people don't buy the smart car.
