We’ve heard of electric cars and grease fueled school buses, but what about the wind powered car.
As a farmer in Beijing, Tang Zhenping had been pretty concerned about the pollution in his city for a while.
So he put on his thinking cap and came up with the car you see above. Made from scrap materials that cost a mere $1,600, the car takes three months to build and boasts a turbine on its nose which powers an electric engine.
We’re not sure how you first get the car running but once it’s on it’s way, the turbine at the front works like a windmill, generating energy, giving the engine power.
While some think it’s just a glorified electric go-kart and is not going to revolutionize the car industry, we have to commend Tang for his innovative thinking.
