  • I'd say this concept car has commercial potential. It is called the Sunswift Violet. It has solar panels fitted on to the surface, and a lithium ion battery pack. It is 5 metres long, 2.2 metres wide, 1.2 metres wide , weighs 360 kg, and seats 4 peeps, in airconditioned comfort. With it's two 1.5 kW rear wheel in hub DC synchronous motors running at a reported 98 % efficiency , it has a range of 500 km on it's battery pack, or up to 800 km with the assistance of the solar array. The 5.00-square-metre (53.7 sq ft) array consists of 318 monocrystalline silicon cells with an approximate efficiency of 22% . And it is legally road registered, in NSW, which has quite stringent roadworthiness standards.
