All sorts of cars can run on sun, including tiny ones – very tiny ones.
The World’s Smallest Solar Racing Car is a fully functional solar vehicle topped with a miniscule solar panel that generates enough electricity to run a small electric motor with four wheels attached. Measuring only 33×22×14 millimeters, the car can run on solar power alone, or even on light from a strong indoor source.
While it might not be practical, this tiny car illustrates in concrete and entertaining fashion the synergy between sun power and driving.
