It was just a matter of time before someone figured out how to do it: A solar powered electric bicycle. You ride this bicycle down Highway 59 with pure solar power to propel you onward. If you get tired and need a little help, just switch on and let this green electric wonder take over. Who needs cars?

The E-V Sunny Bicycle works by using the energy absorbed by solar panels incorporated in the wheels, which power a battery at the back of the bicycle. Designed by Canadian, Peter Sandler of Therapy Products, this is apparently the first all-solar electric bicycle.

The bike is propelled by a 500 watt front hub motor. The variable speed electronic controller drives the bike to speeds of up to 30 kilometers per hour. Overall weight of the bicycle is 75 lbs.
