Would it be possible to engineer a self-charging vehicle... Harnessing kinetic, solar, and wind energy?
Not enough to be perpetually self charging unless you only drive it a few miles a week. For continuous driving you can't come close without major sacrifices.Would it be possible to engineer a self-charging vehicle... Harnessing kinetic, solar, and wind energy?
The car will need to look like the photo below and have no air conditioning, no passenger room, no cargo space and you have to lay down to drive it. It will go 60mph, but it'll take a minute or two to accelerate to it. That's for continuous driving. Either that or like mfb says, you can have a normal car that you can only drive an average of a couple of miles a day.What sacrifices??
Wait!!... on second thought...... you
have tocan lay down to drive it.
The world record for a vehicled powered only from PV (no batteries) is not quite there yet, 55 mph. No doubt the course was dead level with no headwind and the time close to solar zenith.It will go 60mph
