Solar Vehicles

Solar vehicles have not yet hit the roads, but the Antro Solo might change that come 2012. This vehicle “took a couple of extra steps beyond the usual gas-electric hybrids, including putting some solar cells on the car’s roof to help charge the battery.” Click here for first picture in gallery.

The fact that the entire car weighs less than 600 pounds doesn’t hurt either. As you might have guessed, however, the car is still a ways away from rolling off the production line, but the company says it expects to get it out the door by 2012, when you’ll supposedly be able to pick one up for $18,000.
