2020 Hyundai City Car Concept Powered By Solar Technology
The 2020 Hyundai city car concept is powered by solar technology!
Ever wondered how Hyundai cars will look like in the near distant future?
Nicolas Stone, a recent graduate of the College for Creative Studies, can help you answer the question.
As a part of his design project, which has been financially supported by Hyundai, Nicolas created his vision of a four-seater city car of the future.
While the concept might be featuring a a funky and colorful exterior look, it also packs some technology that we will likely never see in the vehicles.
According to Nicolas, the whole body of the car consists of transparent solar panels that are creating electricity.
The electricity is then fed into a water tank to split the hydrogen from the oxygen. The hydrogen is stored and used to power the vehicle while the pure oxygen comes out the exhaust.
The process has been called “artificial photosynthesis” and has been developed by MITs (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) professor Daniel Nocera.
Are we ever gonna see this technology in real life? According to Daniel we will. Read more about his research and development and find details on upcoming the solar revolution here.
