This BMW Comes With A Solar Carport That Charges Your Car

Tempe Auto Repair BMW has come up with a solar carport in which to park the new i3 and the soon to come i8 electric vehicles. BMW is unveiling this one of a kind auto accessory as part of the official launch of the i8 in Los Angeles, California. This new carport concept follows previous strategies by BMW to punch up its "i" sub-brand, which uses electric power. This new design features a framework making use of bamboo and sports glass-on-glass solar modules mounted on the roof. It's designed to work in conjunction with BMWs i Wallbox Pro. This makes is possible to charge the car directly from the solar panels. It also keeps a detailed report on how much solar power is going into the system compared to grid consumption. Any surplus power can be channeled back into the owner's home for everyday use. When fully charged the i8 hybrid has a traveling range of apps. 22 miles when in electric only mode. One thing's for sure, given how much sunshine we get here in the Tempe/Phoenix area, keeping your new BMW always charged to capacity shouldn't be a problem! Source: GizMag
