Ford Motor Company which is known as one of the leading car manufacturing companies have announced about the C-MAX Solar Energi Concept, a first kind of solar energy propelled vehicle which has the potential to deliver best of models with all the facilities and features that are included in a normal car. The car has the potential to deliver the best of plug in hybrid offers and it does not depend on the electric grid for fuel. As a replacement for of powering its battery from an electrical outlet, Ford C-MAX Solar Energy Concept tie together the authority of the sun by using a out of the ordinary concentrator that acts like a magnify beaker, directing powerful rays to solar panels on the vehicle roof.

“Ford C-MAX Solar Energy Concept shines a new light on electric transportation and renewable energy,” said Mike Tinskey, Ford global director of vehicle electrification and infrastructure. “As an innovation leader, we want to further the public dialog about the art of the possible in moving the world toward a cleaner future.” C-MAX Solar Energy perception which will be publicized at the 2014 International CES in Las Vegas is a two-way project of Ford; San Jose, Calif based Sun Power Corporation and Atlanta-based Georgia Institute of Technology.

Sun Power has been Ford’s solar technology partner since 2011and this is providing high efficiency solar cells for the roof of Ford C-MAX Solar Energy Concept. Because of the extended time it takes to absorb enough energy to fully charge the vehicle, Ford turned to Georgia Institute of Technology for a way to intensify the sunlight.

With this new model researchers have developed an off vehicle solar concentrator that utilizes a special Fresnel lens to express sunlight to the solar cells and for the time this will help in boosting the impact of the sunlight by a factor of eight. Fresnel is a compact lens originally developed for use in light houses and is quite powerful and good enough. Similar in concept to a magnifying glass, the researches utilizes patent pending system tracks the sun as it moves from east to west, drawing enough power from the sun through the concentrator each day to equal a four-hour battery charge and it is around 8 kilowatts.

The model has been superbly designed with exteriors and interiors. The outside appearance is good and impressive looking. The head lamps are fitted with LED lamps and provide clear viewing. The car model is fitted with nineteen inch alloy wheels and it complements the car design. The car is red colored and looks amazing on the race tracks. It makes it look brighter and contrasting shade adds to its impressive looks. The car is designed with highly acclaimed car design and features. Other details you will be able to know once the details and specifications are available. As of now the brand has launched its photos.

The car has all the latest features and technologies included. There is a seven inch touch screen which is featured with upgraded navigation systems and other features. The seats are designed with new technology and ensure the full customer satisfaction. The seats provide optimum occupant comfort and full support to the drivers. Ford C-MAX Energy gets a combination of best miles per gallon equivalent in its class alongside the EPA which is estimated to 108 Miles per Gallon in the city and 92 Miles per Gallon in the highway, and as a combination gives around 100 Miles per Gallon. By using renewable power, Ford C-MAX Solar Energy Concept is estimated to reduce the annual greenhouse gas emissions a typical owner would produce by four metric tons.
