Venturi Eclectic: Solar and Wind Powered Electric Car

Venturi, makers of beautiful electric vehicles like the Fetish and the Astrolab are coming out with an electric car that we can afford at $30k, and that will actually be for sale as soon as June 2007. It can be powered by either its photovoltaics, or the wind through a "force wheel". Too bad it looks like a Model-T golf cart.

The car, according to giz fav Mobile Mag, runs off a 22HP engine, with primary power coming from being plugged in, or the 2.5 square meters of roof panel. It'll go a little less than 100 miles at 50MPH, per charge.
