Even in today’s environmentally-aware times, many scoff at solar powered cars as an impractical fantasy with no hope of real-world success. And it's true that solar energy won't be replacing gasoline in the immediate future. However, that hasn't stopped some of the best and brightest minds in automotive engineering from typing. As a proof, we have prepared some solar powered cars. Solar vehicle is an electric vehicle powered completely or significantly by direct solar energy. Usually, photovoltaic (PV) cells contained in solar panels convert the sun's energy directly into electric energy. The term "solar vehicle" usually implies that solar energy is used to power all or part of a vehicle's propulsion. Solar power may be also used to provide power for communications or controls or other auxiliary functions.
