The Solis concept car is one of the sleekest solar cars you may ever lay eyes on. This car was designed by Mika Becktor, and runs off of solar power extracted through its exterior.

The Solis concept car would be powered by four in-wheel engines that draw power from an on-board battery. Making solar cars more aesthetically appealing is key to getting the mass market to accept them. While just a concept, Solis is a step in the right direction.
