A solar tent to charge your EV?

A solar tent to charge your EV?

By ,

Turkish-based design studio Nobis (via DesignBoom) has developed a solar tent to charge electric car batteries.

The V-Tent is more than that, however. It also features small ventilation tubes beneath the solar panels to keep the interior cool when the car is parked under the sun for a long period.

Drivers can access the tent via their smartphone, and pay the charging fees on a small stand integrated into the machine. A lighting system shows whether the tent is available, charging, or charged.

While the V-Tent is just a concept for now, mass production isn't out of the question.
