The Solar car uses photovoltaics cells (solar cells) to convert sunlight into electricity, then stores the electricity in batteries that power an electric motor that drives the car.

A series of electric and electronic components control the whole process.

About 50km east of Vernon, B.C., the solar car stopped on the side of the road to wait for the support vehicle. A couple pulled over into the shoulder ahead of the solar car. It seems they want to take a close look.

They came close to the car but very quickly moved away, the girl at first seems to be the braver of the two she was taking photos.

The solar car moved foward very slowly, the girl takes off, running francticly behind the car. Question for the two of you in this video. What did you think the solar car was?
