I came across this article (blog.pcnews.ro) and thought it very interesting so thought i would share it will you all today.
The new Eclectic Car is a far out design concept that revolutionizes the word green!The continuous increase of gas prices, economic crises, wars, omnipresent pollution, irreversible changes in the climate, our world is going through a period when the chances in terms of energy form the very basis for worldwide problems. Eclectic, the first autonomous vehicle in the history of the automobile, opens up a new era in the field of mobility: reserved for daily driving in urban areas, its low energy consumption makes it the most economical environmental vehicle ever made. This car is by far the silliest thing we will be seeing on four wheels. It is equipped the circus looking car with a solar panel and a wind turbine so it can get power from the elements. It also has a plug for recharging from an outlet, which I'm sure is the way this will be charged 99.99% of the time because the panel and turbine combined give you only 14 miles a day. Eclectic is much more than a simple automobile. It is a creation and storage plant for renewable energies, either solar or wind based. Charging of these energies, which is intermittent in certain regions, can also be complemented by electrical recharging. (blog.pcnews.ro)
