Solar Powered Electric Car

September 2nd, 2008 by Mike Vasilinda

Imagine getting 100 miles per gallon. Thats what this hybrid Toyota Prius, retrofitted with an electric plug and heavy duty battery is promising. The car will travel about 40 miles in city traffic for about 80 cents worth of electricity. The cost: 4 dollars a week, which is about the cost of a gallon of gas. The car is the proud creation of Tallahassee owner Fran Sullivan-Fahs.

Instead of being dependant upon parts of the world that arent very friendly to us, we now depend upon electrons that are produced here in our country, so our source of power comes from our own country. says Sullivan-Fahs.

The car was at a facility powered in part by solar energy, which means it could actually be free to drive.
