Cruise Car Shows Off Solar Electric Hybrid LSVs

Cruise Car used Earth Day to bring attention to their line of solar electric hybrid low speed vehicles.  The full line of vehicles range from 2-14 passenger vehicles including utility vehicles.  The Sunray and Solar Kudo models feature a roof top solar panel that can continuously charge the batteries while the vehicle is in the sun.

The company also offers the Sunray Solar Roof Kit that can be retrofitted to most standard electric golf cars on the market.  Cruise Car states that

These solar panels can generate up to 180 watts, 60 volts and supply a hefty 3 amps directly to a 36 or 48 volt battery…. Converting a cart to a Sunray top will benefit the end user by increasing the distance the cart can go on a single charge by 30%.

The vehicles with solar panels are also eligible for a federal solar tax credit of 30% and individual states may have additional solar related tax credits as well. Learn more:
