The previous fall, Hyundai uncovered plans to furnish its cars with solar panels. Presently, its first car furnished with a solar rooftop is prepared.
The New Sonata Hybrid is accessible now in Korea, and it ought to arrive in North America soon.
Hyundai trusts that by supporting the vehicle’s electric power source, the rooftop technology may help improve fuel efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions.
The solar panels are required to charge 30 to 60 percent of the battery every day. With six hours of day by day charging, it could hypothetically expand drivers’ travel distance by an extra 1,300 km (around 807 miles) every year.
That may not be a tremendous improvement, however, it shows that solar rooftops can possibly give hybrids and EVs a boost.
It’s likewise proof that roof-top solar panels don’t need to be restricted to extravagance brands and trial vehicles.
