Centaurus 2 Solar Powered Vehicle

Solar powered vehicles are beginning to be developed and introduced as our modern world goes 'green'. In a bid to create the best solar powered vehicle, to participate in the 2010 American Solar Challenge, a 1100 mile race from Tulsa to Chicago, emerges the Centaurus 2. The Centaurus 2, made by The Solar Vehicle Project team, looks to be powered by three wheels with the driver off the vehicle positioned off center.

The Centaurus is approximately three feet tall, sixteen feet long and six feet wide. The car weighs around 400 pounds, which in comparison to a conventional car is rather light and should contribute towards improved aerodynamics.

The solar cells only appear to cover half of the car's casing. The entire casing may be covered by the time the car is ready to compete, depending on how much energy the car needs to absorb, store and generate.

It's always good to see developments in more environmentally friendly products, and although this is just one concept, there are sure to be other solar powered vehicles being developed at this same time, in preparation for the American Solar Challenge.

That invention is so cool

Submitted by solanny

There is no way that you can make this product, "more green" then a normal car. A new honda civic gets about 28 - 30 miles to the gallon and this piece of crap gets infinity. Ok. But when you take into consideration of how much energy it took to produce and make, it has a negative effect on the planet. Same as hybrids the energy it takes to make one and break it down when it is done is far greater then the prosess of burning straight up fossil fuel

Plese creat it in car :lol:

Submitted by piyush

Nope. Sorry. There simply isn't enough solar energy incident on the size of a car to generate more that a few horsepower. Solar powered cars are not realistic, even if we make solar cells 100% efficient. Average retail is only about 10-15% efficient
