XOF1 Solar Car - Spotted in the Wild


As we were driving North on CA-1 on our way back from the elephant seal rookery, KC and I saw an odd vehicle off in the distance. At first it looked like a wide-load with some sort of farm equipment in the front. As the ‘farm equipment’ got closer (it was closing fast) it started to look like a squat vehicle. At first I figured it was a Shell Solar Challenge vehicle, but once we got home we noticed that the news had a story.

It is a fellow Canadian who has made this vechicle (and driving it around North America) quite a project.

PS: Damn - it was cool looking and booking along, fast.
