We need a lot more of this.
Meet “Vili,” a solar-powered electric railcar that is currently transporting tourists through a georgeous wooded area outside Budapest, Reuters reports.
A prototype from Iploy Forest Co., the train uses rooftop photovolactic panels and turns solar radiation into electricity to power the railcar.
There’s no pollution and no need to find a recharging station to keep the train going.
