Today the list of attributes of contemporary transportation systems should include space efficiency, fuel cost minimization and eco-friendliness.
The latest design developed by Jin Yuanbiao, Gang Tang and Su Sha represents a futuristic vehicle that not only boasts green features but also impressive aesthetics.
Dubbed Solar Coco, the round-shaped, two-wheel green car produces solar energy by making use of its solar panels.
When several Solar Coco vehicles are parked in a special rotating structure, they open their solar panels to the sun, resembling sunflowers.
By lifting up the vehicles, the special parking system allows the cars to be fully exposed to sunlight (which makes the charging process quicker) and at the same time saves a lot of parking space.
In order to open the door of a Solar Coco, the drivers should swipe their cards. The operator control of the parking system informs on which vehicle is fully charged and is ready to be released.
