Electric cars have been around for a while. But some people are waiting for them to be even more reliable. The C-MAX Solar Energi Concept is very intriguing though. This cool car has a 16-square-foot solar panel that charges its lithium-ion battery pack. The car does not need to be plugged in and can go completely off the grid. All you need is a solar canopy to get rolling.
C-MAX Solar Energi is more than a fun concept. You may be able to buy this in the future. The fact that Ford is doing research in this area is promising.
