Wind Powered SuperCar

Inhabitat: Seeking to expand the horizons of future-forward transportation, Ecotricity founder Dale Vince has set out to create the world’s first zero-emission, wind powered supercar. The vehicle is based upon a heavily modified Lotus Exige that has been retrofitted with an electric engine that will be charged completely by the wind!

Dale has been keeping track of his progress on his blog Zero Carbonista as he transforms the supercar into sleek electric vehicle capable of running on the wind alone.

    Turning a lotus into an electric car has already been done hasn't it?
  • Hugh says
    If he can develop the concept well enough that his forward speed creates as much wind power as the electricty the car is using, then the concept of perpetual motion is a step closer!
    Technically impossible, and where do you put a bloody great propeller and how do you deal with the pedestrian mincemeat that could result?
