Fujin Electric Bike Powered by On-Board Solar Panel


A Japanese company called Hama Zero has recently developed a new electric bike, powered by the electricity produced using an on-board solar panel.

Dubbed “Solar Bike Fujin”, the solar-powered electric bike has an assisted travel range of 220km on a single charge and it can be used on public roads.

Reaching a top speed of about 72km/h, the bike is powered by a 940W/h lithium-ion battery which stores the energy and has a weight of just 42kgs (including the solar panel placed in a box at the back).

On rainy or cloudy days, Fujin has the possibility to charge its batteries from a home power socket and according to the company one charge costs around $0.02.
