Gallery: Antro Unveils a Solar Car That Splits into Two Vehicles!

    It’s probably just a tow-bar between the two vehicles with some sort of electronics connection to hopefully take advantage of both (or all) of the electric motors rather than having on car use all its muscle to pull the other. This actually wouldn’t be a bad idea for smart cars or other two seaters out there already. Then a family of 4 could still have the option of being greener when there’s only 1 or two people who need to go somewhere – and the kids can be put in a whole separate vehicle so you never hear “are we there yet.” You’d obviously have to disengage the controls in the second car though or Johnny may kill us all!
