The Hexa can well be a stretched four-wheeled golf ball for a lucky number eighteen strike. It’s all solar powered with a dimpled aerodynamic surface for better efficiency. Its equipped roof-mounted solar panels make the Hexa one of the few conceptualized green-vehicles which doesn’t need a station to refuel. It’s all electrical with the only need to stay in sunlight to recharge. Too bad for those who keep their cars in the garage, right? Designer Dimitri Bez clearly envisioned something of our future world: the possibility to have vehicles that don’t need any fuels whatsoever, but only the power of the Sun.
The dimpled aerodynamic body of the Hexa has some strong advantages. First of all, it reduces drag for better control of the vehicle. Secondly, it increases the efficiency of solar power on cloudy days. Thirdly, and most important, the dimpled surface helps reduce heat transfer.
Hexa’s aspect is based on a unique contrast between its smooth exterior body and porous rooftop. In other words, the Hexa is an evolved model of the first created solar vehicles. There are, however, some disadvantages. One of these disadvantages is that the Hexa cannot be considered an universal vehicle, due to the fact that it has no aim towards the Northern Hemispheres.
The Hexa might not be received with enthusiasm by the countries of those parts, where the lack of daylight can last longer than 24 or even 48 hours. This means the vehicle’s utility will be shattered and ignored from the respective markets. Perhaps Thomas Pastor’s integrated-windmills system could do the trick for the Hexa as well, so that the vehicle can be efficient enough even when the Sun is long down. But that’s only a point of view, without any special expertize in the domain. Would you believe a solar self-sufficient vehicle could actually be the launch of another era?
