V-Tent car-cover protects your EV and juices it up too!
Looking for the perfect way to protect your shiny new electric car from the harsh elements outside? Well, this development is bound to suit your taste! Called the V-Tent, this fantastically designed collapsible canopy envelopes an electric vehicle as it’s being charged. What sets it apart from a conventional car-cover is the fact that the V-Tent sports photovoltaic cells that soak in the sun’s energy, converting it all into electricity to power up you EV!
The V-Tent was designed by Turky-based Designnobis and can keep your car away from the sun’s heat and the dampness of rain. The cover uses three materials in all with the inner-most layer sporting micro ventilation tube, the middle layer using a reflective material while the top incorporates flexible solar panels.
