A solar car has been developed at National Kaohsiung University of Applied Sciences, built to compete in races such as the Australian World Solar Challenge (WSC). It's not clear whether they mean to produce these for sale on the market.

It's a low speed EV but due to it's light weight they can completely charge the pack in ?3? hours of sunlight.

There are links below -- the gizmodo article calls this ugly, so much for taste.

Re: World's Ugliest Car Gets Unsurprisingly High Gas Mileage

Hi,

in another forum the th!nk was announced - for approx. the sam amount of bucks (24000€). http://www.ftd.de/karriere_management/business_english/:Business%20English%20Jump/294881.html
I think this is silly, silly silly!
You cannot offer a go-cart for the price of a private castle (e.g. western style car)

Redo the business model - talk to tata and come back with something at about €5000.

BTW: my FUN ELEC Scootcar costs €9200 which is far to high for 3 LA batteries...

cheers

Efried
