Renewable energy is the way to go, when it comes to transport.

Jesper Frausig has developed, a solar-powered electric bike that is able to travel about 40 miles on a full charge.

The main advantages of a solar-powered bike is that you don’t have to plug it in.

All you need to do is park it in the sunlight and you’re good to go.

It has solar panels embedded in the wheels to harvest sunlight and store the energy in a battery mounted to the frame.

When you’re in motion, the motor uses energy from both the solar cells and the battery to propel the bike forward.

The bike has a top speed of 30 mph, getting you to where you need to go quickly and without the sweat.

The is no communication when the bike will be available, though there are two prototypes.
