Engino Solar Powered Cars
Engino Solar Powered Cars Kit teaches inquisitive youngsters everything they need to know about solar energy! As we seek to substitute fuels with alternative energy to reduce the severity of gloabal warming, one application is already becoming a reality: solar powered cars!
Young inventors can now experiment with this technology using a hybrid engine set. Engino Models can run either with solar energy or with battery power. The set also includes a wired RC handset, solar panel, motor module and a 20-page booklet with building instructions for 8 Models.
Use the remarkably advanced and versatile Engino system to build working models of solar-powered trucks, tractors, cars, andmore cool vehicles. It includes 282 parts and 711 connecting points.
Award winning Engino also offers unique opportunities for inventive and imaginative builds.

About Engino's Solar Power Series
With Global warming and Climate change a real world-wide challenge, Engino considered it vital to introduce its solar power series. The solar construction sets use photovoltaic panels to drive and power models, they also include models with hybrid functions in-line with the latest technological trends.
Photovoltaic cells are used to harness solar power and convert this abundant, free energy into useful electricity. Using clean energy from the sun for our electrical needs, reduces the need to burn fossils fuels (our traditional and main source of electricity), hence reduces carbon gass emissions and damage to our global environment.
The solar panels (photovoltaic cells) included in Engino's solar series, are 1.5V and designed to assemble on Engino parts. Solar panels are eqipped with a DC jack and socket for triple action: (1) connect with a 30cm wire to a motor, (2) connect to the RC handset and power models from a distance (150cm wire), and (3) connect many panels together in a series to multiply the solar power!
When the remote control handset is connected to models with the 150cm wire, the hybrid function can be enabled. It includes a socket to connect directly to Engino solar panels and power the motor, or it can work with 2 x AA batteries (not included). There are 3 switches on the RC (1) Forward - Reverse, (2) Solar or Battery power operation, and (3) Fast or Slow.
