Sanyo unveils a new solar-charged van


As the ecology-focused, multi-national COP 15 conference in Copenhagen gets under way, Sanyo has unveiled its latest green energy machine. Scheduled to go on display at the Eco Products 2009 International Exhibition at Tokyo Big Sight tomorrow, the Solar Electric Vehicle is powered by Sanyo solar panels and lithium ion batteries.

The vehicle needs 16 hours to charge  via the solar panels and half that if charged via a 100-volt AC outlet.
