Venturi Eclectic – entirely self-powered car
You will probably never see a Venturi Eclectic on the road. Shame.
The car, on display at the Paris Motor Show, is entirely self-powered. The 22 hp, 50Nm electric motor is charged by 2.5 square meters of solar panels on the roof of the vehicle. There is also a force wheel to turn the wind into electric power. The car can cover 50km at 50 mph on a full charge. 200 vehicles, which look more like golf carts than cars, will be made starting in June of next year, costing 24,000 euros each.
