Have you seen anything like that?

Segun Oyeyiola, a student of Obafemi Awolowo University, in Ife, Osun State, Nigeria, has converted a Volkswagen Beetle, using mainly scrap parts donated by friends and family, into a $6000 wind and solar powered car. He describes his creation as “Nigeria’s future car.”

The dedication and desire to fight against climate change inspired Nigerian College Student Segun Oyeyiola to make a Wind and Solar Powered Car.

One of Segun Oyeyiola's challenges was overcoming people's skepticism. Many told him he was wasting his time. But he took no notice and soldiered on, determined to build a vehicle that could run without fuel.

Here is an animated depiction of the car below:

His concern for the environment has always been his motivation, this has helped him dedicate much of his time and resources to creating the automobile despite many critics labelling his pursuit ‘a waste of time’. “I wanted to reduce carbon dioxide emission[s] going to our atmosphere that lead to climate change or global warming which has become a new reality, with deleterious effect,” he said. “Seasonal cycles are disrupted, as are ecosystems; and agriculture, water needs and supply, and food production are all adversely affected.”

The world needs more guys like him...I say well done to this positive! Love the concept!
