You all have some pretty neat stuff on here.
I have been interested in solar EV’s for years now! Well I did it! I built my first solar EV! It is just a neighborhood car to go get the snail mail a mile down the road.
It has 4,700 watts using 6 each DC motors. 282 each lithium ion 3.66 volt x 866 mAh batteries. 48 volt 60 amp solar charge controller. 700 watt solar array. Disc brakes. HID / LED lights. .065" x 1.5" Round tubing frame themed after the Ariel Atom British car. 24" front wheels and 28" rear wheels. Metallic blue paint. Indy car styled lay-down shocks, 4 wheel unequal wishbone suspension with 1/2" heim joints at wheel. I wanted this car to be 4 wheel turning, however this is a more difficult task to accomplish than I had expected, slow speed all wheel turning is the next step.
to see my car goto youtube and my handle is azman67.

I still have much work to do on it. I have a little over $2,000 invested in parts and material and I did the metal bending and fabrication myself.
It really is an amazing feeling driving from only the Sun’s energy!
This is my first step to ending my dependancy on petrol/gas for fuel.
My next step is a Tesla model 3 for $35,000 in 2017 I hope!
