A taxi powered by solar energy: In this way Louis Palmer, a Swiss professor, left Luzerne last July to travel around the world.

This is the first car that is able to cross the entire world without having to report to the oil companies since it does not spend a single drop of gasoline. The taxi has three wheels and a six-meter trailer where solar panels are located that give it enough energy to reach a maximum of 90 km / h.

This is a taxi and not a conventional vehicle because the trip is picking up some illustrious passengers like Prince Hassan of Jordan.

Louis is now in India after having traveled more than 14 thousand kilometers and crossed 14 countries. The goal is to reach Bali where a conference on climate change will be held.
