car solaire

A sustainable, solar-powered minibus for Dakar!

Project Overview

The goal of EcoCar Solaire is to convert Dakar’s fossil-powered shared taxis into solar-powered cars solaires, offering a large portion of the Senegalese metropolis' inhabitants environmentally-friendly mobility. With this solution, everyone can afford to travel to work, school or university without causing any pollution harmful to climate and public health, and female market vendors can have goods to be sold at the local market transported.
