Alta Devices is working with Audi to integrate solar into the roofs of Audi cars.
Audi plans to bring three battery-powered electric vehicles to market by 2020. Initially, Alta’s solar will be integrated into the panoramic glass roof of Audi vehicles to power auxiliary systems like air-conditioning or seat heaters which will extend the car’s range. Later, Alta’s solar will cover the entire roof surface and could be used to directly charge Audi electric vehicle batteries.
We’re looking forward to shaping the solar car of the future with Audi!

Hanergy Solar Cars
Hanergy has developed four solar electric concept cars. The vehicles are lightweight and covered in flexible, thin-film, Alta Devices solar cells. The solar extends the range of the vehicles which can also be plugged in to charge their Lithium Ion batteries. The four cars target different types of users and are called the Solar R the Solar O, Solar L, and Solar A. The Hanergy Solar R is a sports car with thin-film solar cells placed on its hood, roof and side panels.
