C-MAX Energi plug-in hybrid

With the price of energy always increasing, solar energy offers a way to power your car without buying petrol or increasing your monthly energy bills

The C-Max hybrid is the first car of its kind, the C-Max Solar Energi Concept has 1.5 square meters of PV cells with a 300 to 350 watt capacity located on its roof that can charge the vehicle's battery.

These panels alone do not generate enough energy to power a car for an entire day. In order to amplify the amount of solar energy harvested, Ford has also added a canopy with a solar concentrator lens that acts like a magnifying glass that boost the impact of the sunlight by a factor of eight to charge the vehicle more efficiently.

we cant wait....
