The Schulich Delta focuses on maximizing efficiency for races but still seats two inside. To harvest more power on the move, the solar panels have a special coating that reflects the rays into the cells when the sun hits them at less optimum angles. A 14-kWh lithium-ion battery stores the energy and sends it to a pair of two-horsepower motors at the rear wheels. While that doesn't sound like much, the lightweight body allows the coupe to reach up to 35 miles per hour. Rather than traditional pedals, the driver uses dials to control acceleration and deceleration.
The fascinating thing about the University of Calgary's vehicle is that it almost seems usable by a regular person. The Schulich Delta certainly has compromises like a rock hard suspension and bare interior, but an adventurous buyer might accept those downsides for the potential to never have to refuel or recharge or anything. If the video above isn't enough, Ars Technica also has a story that goes into more detail about what it's like to experience the Schulich Delta as a passenger.
