'Seat Duna' concept dune buggy cleverly hides its solar panels

Not too long ago, Spanish designer Miguel-Angel Iranzo Sanchez showed off the Seat Brisa, which was essentially a solar-powered love seat. Now he's designed the Brisa's successor, the Duna, which comes off looking a bit more like a car with its substantial backside, but keeps the solar panels embedded in the hood.

From the designer:

The Seat Duna is an electric beach buggy designed to provide old-fashioned fun in an eco way. Based on the Volkswagen Up! platform, the Seat Duna is propelled by an electric motor fed by nano-photovoltaic cells scattered throughout its translucent elastomere shell. With its lightweight mesh seats, laminated cedar rocker panels inspired by vintage surfboards, and bright colors, the Seat Duna is a quite extrovert car.
