In Australia they tested a new wind powered car that set a lot of new records. This car was extremely lightweight but you can see potential for better things. It is an electric powered vehicle use a battery similar to most recent electric cars. The difference is it comes with a retractable wind turbine that is used to recharge the battery. This works out to an almost zero emission vehicle. This would be a great commute to work vehicle. You can recharge the battery during the day at work and at night in your driveway. Imagine the money you will save on energy by cutting out your fuel cost. Hopefully this will be in the market someday so the consumer can benefit from it. It will also be good for the planet by cutting the carbon footprint done immensely.
