Solar Car Demo Anniversary: How Far Have Solar Powered Cars Come?
This article briefly discusses the anniversary of the first solar powered car demonstration and takes a look at how far solar powered cars have come since then.
August 31, 2020 marks the 57th anniversary of the first solar powered car demonstration. The car, which was aptly named the "Sunmobile", made its debut in Chicago, Illinois, at the 1955 General Motors Powerama auto show. It was demonstrated by General Motors Corporation's own William G. Cobb. At the time, the 15 inch long prototype was constructed of balsa wood, made use of 12 photoelectric cells and was capable of producing 12 horse-power. So how far has the solar powered automobile industry come since then? The answer may surprise you. Let's take a quick look at some of the highlights:
1st Solar Powered Car for Humans
Cobb's Sunmobile would never make its way into mass production. As a matter of fact, the world didn't get to witness another solar powered, concept car until 1977. It was created by then Alabama University professor Ed Passereni. Passereni dubbed his commuter car the "Bluebird." Unlike the Sunmobile, the Bluebird was capable of transporting a human being. It, however, was not mass produced either.
The first solar powered race car was manufactured in 1981 by Larry Perkins and Hans Tholstrup. Their solar powered racecar was fully functional and eventually completed a 20 day road trip in 1982 from Perth to Sydney, Australia. It wasn't their only contribution to the solar power industry either. Tholstrup is also the founder of the World Solar Challenge, an annual event that continues to this day. The event is designed to challenge others to invent solar powered vehicles of their own and race them across Australia.
Solar Powered Cars Set Records
Since 1981, several solar powered concept cars have been created including the GM Sunraycer. The GM Sunraycer made its debut in 1987 and seemingly picked up where the 1955 Sunmobile left off. It was 19.7 feet long, outfitted with 7,200 solar cells and was capable of transporting human passengers. It was also pretty darn fast. So fast in fact the GM Sunraycer won Tholstrup's first ever, World Solar Challenge. It also went on to set a world solar speed record in the summer of 1988.
The GM Sunraycer, however, wasn't the last solar powered car to set a world record. In 2004, students from the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada, made their way into the Guinness World Records' books after taking their solar powered car, the "Midnight Sun", and driving it 9,364 miles across Canada and the United States. As impressive as that was, the Midnight Sun did not enter the realm of mass production either.
Neither did the "Sunswift IV." It is a solar powered racecar that was created by the University of New South Wales' Solar Racing Team. In January 2020, the team successfully got their solar powered racecar to reach speeds in excess of 85 km/hr. It took 400 silicon cells and a lot of innovation to get the job done. It also happened to capture the attention of people worldwide including the fine folks at the Guinness World Records' headquarters.
Commercially Produced Solar Powered Cars
A commercially produced solar power car didn't show up on the scene until the 2020 Paris Motor Show. During the show, the France based company, Venturi, unveiled a solar powered, hybrid, concept car known as the Astrolab. The Astrolab has a body that is outfitted with photovoltaic cells and can accommodate two passengers. It is said to be commercially available and capable of reaching speeds in excess of 100 km/h. However, how many Astrolabs have actually made it into the hands of consumers since its unveiling is currently unknown.
Not to be outdone, Toyota unveiled the Prius at the 2020 Detroit Auto Show. Although it is also not a fully solar powered car, the Prius does sport a solar powered ventilation system option. That has to at least count for something.
So there you have it. As of July 2020, solar powered, mass produced vehicles still remain more of a concept than a reality. Whether or not that will change in the near future remains to be seen. Nonetheless, one thing is certain. Solar powered cars have come a long way since their debut in 1955.
