"The Star 8 SolarTuk will be available with a single, lightweight,
mono-crystalline flexible panel roof generating a half kilowatt capacity, an
800 watt double roof (where a second roof slides out from above the fixed
roof), a one kilowatt double roof and a one kilowatt double roof with
additional solar generating side and rear flaps."
Via Phillip Tyson, who wrote: "Now here's something you don't come across
every day. A Melbourne company has developed an electric tuk-tuk capable of
travelling 120 kilometres at 50km/h on a single charge, while a second battery
is replenished using a roof-mounted 0.5kW panel. Their goal is not just to
replace dirty internal combustion engines in crowded cities, but to provide
electricity to families in developing cities where connection to the mains grid
isn't available or is cost prohibitive."
