SOLAR VEHICULE

How do solar cars work?
solar cells

The new vehicule Eclipse X is powered by 4 meters squares of silicium solar cells that boast an efficiency of 24,3% while driving. An additionnal 2 meters squares of soalr cells are added when the vehicule stops to recharge.

LITHIUM-ION BATTERY

Eclipse X, holds a battery composed of 416 lithium-ion cells which together have a capacity equivalent to 5000 Watts/hour. This battery will hold the energy produced by our solar panels and by our motor when we are employing regenerative breaking.

ZERO EMISSIONS

Since our motor is 100% electric and that we are using the sun as our power source, our vehicule releases no green house gases in the atmosphere, thus helping to preserve a healthy environment.
