The goal of SunRED’s "Moto Solar Urbana" (Urban Solar Motorbike) project is to present a working prototype in the next future and to develop a production model.
The concept is powered by a rear-mounted in-wheel electric motor. In order to maximize the stored energy, the exterior body is made of movable solar panels.
When the vehicle is stopped the panels extend to form a clamshell with a total area of 3.1 square meters.
The stored energy allows for a maximum range of about 20 km at 50 km/h. All the different functions can be accessed and controlled via a 6.4" LCD screen.
