Humble motors, an American firm based in California that works on the development of electric vehicles with solar panels, showed what it is capable of achieving through the Humble one, an electric SUV with a sunroof that allows you to charge its battery.
With avant-garde styling and a high drag coefficient, the Humble One offers a spacious interior space despite the fact that its body is quite compact. In terms of performance, its electric motor delivers 1.020 CV, while its autonomy is 800 kilometers on a single charge.
It has options of standard AC and DC charging, although thanks to seven square meters of photovoltaic cells located on the roof, it gets enough energy to travel about a hundred kilometers a day.
The Humble One already has its fans. Has accumulated more than $ 20 million in pre-orders and its reserves in the United States increased 426% last month at a time when total sales of electric vehicles in the country only grew 12%.
"We believe that solar energy is the future of mobility and that solar-powered electric vehicles are the next clear step in addressing carbon neutrality in the transportation ecosystem.", he claimed Dima steesy, founder of Humble Motors
The Humble One will begin production in 2024 and will be marketed at an estimated price of 100.000 dollars.
