CAPSolar

CAPSolar develops solar modules optimized for Low Speed Electric Vehicles.

Pitch

Low Speed Electric Vehicles (LSEVs) have a short range and a really short battery life. Most are equipped with batteries which die after 1 to 4 years of usage and therefore require their users to replace them, inducing high maintenance costs (~2000$/battery pack) and Greenhouse Gas emissions (~730kg CO2/battery pack). CAPSolar therefore solves this problem by charging these vehicles’ batteries through 100% clean and free solar energy directly from their roof, extending their range by more than 25% and their battery life by 1 to 3 years.
