Kite-Powered EV Travelled Across Australia
Evonik's Wind Explorer uses only energy generated by its portable wind turbine and a giant kite.
Evonik demonstrated the power of wind technology by driving an electric vehicle across Australia. The ‘Wind Explorer’ has its own mobile power supply and when the lithium-ion batteries are empty, they can be recharged via a portable wind turbine, which produces enough energy to travel 280-360 km a day.
