The 220-kilogram (485-pound) vehicle is 4.5 meters (15 feet) long, 1.8 meters (6 feet) wide and 1.1 meters (4 feet) tall, with a cockpit-like bubble for the driver. With photovoltaic cells covering some 6 square meters (65 square feet) of its surface, the car’s lithium-Ion batteries can drive it up to four hours between 90 to 150 kph (56 to 93 mph).
