A consumer-ready solar car may finally be hitting the showroom floor in the near future with the debut of Ford's C-Max Solar Energi Concept. Ford has teamed up with SunPower and the Georgia Institute of Technology to develop a special lens similar to a magnifying glass to draw power from the sun faster and more efficiently. The car still maintains its charging socket for when you want to use the grid and coupled with its gas engine, the car is capable of a range of up to 620 miles (21 miles all-electric), just like the C-Max that is currently for sale. Ford and the Georgia Institute Technology will begin testing the car after its debut at the Consumer Electronics Show to see whether or not the car is fit for production.
