Solar powered family car

This is really just a footnote to my previous post but it’s too good not to share: a Dutch team has built a family-sized, street-legal car which runs completely on solar power and (even in Holland!) can be expected to produce twice as much energy as it needs for normal use and then (bonus!) feed the excess back into the grid when parked at home.

Here is a short BBC report – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-23339794Clean Technica has run two reports on it as well – this one with a follow-up video here.
