    Possibly 1 of the Worlds Lightest Hybrid Solar Vehicle in 2013

     
    Wen the sun is shining and the ground is level my electric mountain bike will continue to roll forward with no pedaling or battery power required, powered only by sunshine. Successfully demonstrating my design. When I do pedal however... the e-bike becomes a solar assisted vehicle.

    Bike weight with out solar kit: 42 lbs
    Bicycle solar kit: 5 lbs
    Open PV voltage: 10 volts DC
    Open Current: 10 amps DC (under load the PV output drops)
    top speed: 7 km/h

    Project: Solar-Cross
