Onboard wind turbine and solar panels

Post by Electrocycle »

well here's a new idea!
A wind turbine in the car to make use of the breeze as you drive along?

Be ready for a new wave of people asking if you can have an alternator on the other wheels charging up the battery :P

I'm also interested in the solar panel bodywork that can charge the battery pack in 1.5 hours (don't worry, it'll be down to six minutes eventually!) and run a 212kw motor for an hour round a race track!!

LOL...I wouldn't worry too much about it...It's the "Telegraph"...A fine example of a "british tabloid" newspaper. Not much credibility to begin with.....(Unless you are from MIB...in which case it's whats REALLY hapening around the world and this conversation never happend) Image

ps..Written by "a telegraph reporter"...LOL...they won't even put their name to it!!

That is so wrong...   ...on so many levels...

I'm sure there's more than one "dynamics" law being broken with that car...
