Solar Electric Car Primer

Solar Electric Car Primer

"Recommended. An ahead-of-its-time program whose time has arrived." -Science Books & Films
Global warming, ozone depletion, acid rain - all are attributable to the automobile. It is obvious the time has come to find alternative ways to preserve our planet. Solar electric cars are one possible answer, but are they for real and can they really work? This classic program looks back at the first electric cars and reminds us how ahead-of-their-time people had visionary ideas about cars. We understand now that these vehicles were for real and discover how progress has been made in developing them. We meet well-intended novices who experiment with solar energy and electric cars; also we witness a "Tour de Sol," an excellent example of how everyday people can get first-hand experience with engineering design. In the end we realize electric cars will be an important part of the 21st century; the Chevy Volt and the Nissan Leaf are just the beginning..
