Venturi Eclectic: An "Energy-Autonomous" Vehicle


The eclectic part of the Venturi Eclectic (alas, still in the concept stages) refers to how it automatically fuels itself. A catholic consumer of whatever solar or wind (or, if need be, mains) power happens to be handy, it’s naturally intended as a commuter vehicle rather than one for the M5 (but how much petrol do you buy simply for work, versus how much you buy for trips to the country?). While, as I said, it’s still in the concept stages, the mini-wind-turbines are quite a mature technology now so attaching one to an electric car is a natural fit. [GT]
