HOURCAR is so so solar

Sen. Amy Klobuchar and Saint Paul mayor Chris Coleman spoke today about HOURCAR as we unveiled the first solar-powered shared car in the world!

We're aggregating news on our home page, and pictures are posted below.
Our 2kW solar panel.

And our plug-in hybrid Prius.

The mayor and the Senator share a laugh.

Senator Klobuchar talks to the press.

Senator Klobuchar goes for a drive. As far as we know, she's the first congress member to drive a solar-powered plug-in hybrid, and definitely the first one in a solar-powered shared car (because it's the first one :)

Senator Klobuchar returns from her trip. HOURCAR's own Christopher rides shotgun.
