The Venturi Eclectic Concept

Venturi just keeps on amazing me. The Venturi Eclectic Concept is the first truly carbon free vehicle. It uses solar and electric energy for propulsion.

"Unlike other vehicles which are not used for over 90% of the time, Eclectic takes advantage of moments of immobilisation to store energy in its batteries ; contrary to a petrol tank, this energy reserve remains available for other uses."

The Eclectic's sleek three seat design and openness reminds me of a futuristic horse and buggy. Of course it doesn't need the horse. The Eclectic is simple and highly efficient, yet the problem remains, not with cars like the Eclectic, but with us.
