Sanyo debuts solar and lithium ion-powered electric vehicle

As the ecology-focused, multi-national COP 15 conference in Copenhagen gets under way Sanyo has unveiled its latest green energy machine. Scheduled to go on display at the Eco Products 2009 International Exhibition at Tokyo Big Sight tomorrow, the Solar Electric Vehicle is powered by Sanyo solar panels and lithium ion batteries.

The amazing feature of the vehicle is that it only needs 16 hours to charge and just half that if charged via 100 volt AC outlet. The Sanyo car will be available for test drives at the company's booth in the Green Energy Park at the conference this week.
