Emirati develops 50km/hr solar powered car

UAE inventor poised to unveil latest version of environmentally friendly vehicle.

An Emirati man is about to unveil the latest version of his eco-friendly invention - a solar powered car that can reach speeds of up to 50km per hour.

After working for many years on the vehicle, Saqar Bin Saif is reportedly at an advanced stage of development, reported news agency WAM.

And the concept car first seen at the 2007 Dubai Motor Show is believed to be able to travel at 50km per hour, according to a report in the Arabic daily newspaper Al Emaarat Al Yaum.

Saif exhibited the first version of his car in Dubai, and ignited the curiosity of many car manufacturers around the world, including BMW who invited him to Germany.

He has received offers from US and Germany car manufacturers for partnership in marketing his invention on a commercial level.

But for the time being, the Emirati is concentrating more on the ways to upgrade his creation by way of developing solar panels which can produce more power.
