This Nigerian Engineer Converted A VW Beetle Into a $6,000 Solar & Wind Powered Car
While Tesla was creating their pricey electric cars, Nigerian engineering student Segun Oyeyiola of Obagemi Awolowo University was already two steps ahead. This innovative creator turned his gas-guzzling VW Beetle into a vehicle powered solely by solar cells on the top of the car and wind turbines underneath the hood.
While there are certainly future challenges ahead, Oyeyiola has already found the best materials and silenced those who doubted his vision. Now, the engineer is planning on turning this fascinating vehicle into Nigeria’s “future car” – a goal that is certainly in line with a greener future and a better tomorrow in Africa and beyond.
