Electric cars and hybrid cars are useless without ample charging points to charge the vehicles in an efficient manner. BMW DesignworksUSA revealed this BMW i Solar Carport concept, providing a total solution for maximizing renewable energy. Not only will this system enable i3 and i8 owners to recharge their vehicles while it is parked, it also ensures the owners are independent from ongoing electricity prices. The glass-on-glass solar modules on the roof collect energy, but it also protects the parked cars from the element. Its support system is constructed from bamboo and carbon elements, mirroring the design aesthetics used on the automobiles.
