Picture of the day

After 52086 km und 38 countries the solartaxi has arrived at the World Climate Change Conference in Poznan, Poland, to announce the world record: The first time in history a solar powered car has made it all the way around the world! For this historical moment, it was a big honour having Mr. Yvo de Boer, Executive Secretary of the UNFCCC, on board as passenger.

 The solartaxi is now going to stay at the Conference until Dec 12, offerung rides to delegates, press and ministers, before it is heading back to Switzerland.  The final arrival is scheduled to take place in the Technopark Lucerne in Root, at 12:00 h THU Dec 18. Until then, the solartaxi will have travelled almost 18 months and have covered around 54000 km.

Louis,

Congratulations on your achievements at catching the world's attention (you've made our local media here today, even with our current government melt-down underway), breaking records, and the success of your incredible proof-of-concept solar powered vehicle!

We all enjoyed your visit to Ottawa as you passed through our neck of the woods, and the effect it has had on showing us the future of efficient transportation here.

Good for you. Now tell the Big 3 in America to kiss off on their bail out.
I would like to own one of your cars to drive around my home in Florida, USA.

Thankyou so much for doing this! The solar powered Sunray SX2 (see it at www.cruisecarinc.com) neighborhood electric vehicle is also a good alternative for short driving in the city. We need to get the cost down on these vehicles so that average person can afford one and will buy one. This is the answer to freedom from bondage to Middle East Oil,and the answer to the environmental issue of global warming.

this is a car that should make history. i wish that the american "big three" would sit up and take notice. a prototype such as this one can prove it's practicality then why not put these ideas to use. we need to eliminate green house gasses and stop wasting fossile fuels NOW !! my hats off to this young man. why can't detroit follow his lead ? could it be more corporate greed? why should the american taxpayers bail them out if all they are going to do is repeat the same fumbles that they have been making for the last 30 or so years?

What a fantastic journey you've had and a fantastic product you're sharing with the world. The big 3 bailout funds will be coming from alternative energy funding. Let's direct them towards this project !
