Very Amazing Canadian Solar Car sets Ice Road Record

Canadians were behind this past weekend's record-setting ice road drive by a solar-powered vehicle.
Driving the Power of One (XOF1) from Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk - a distance of 187 km - Marcelo da Luz and his team managed the world's longest ice road in about nine and a half hours, despite suffering four flat tires from ice cracks along the way.

Amazing Solar Car!
The XOF1 can accelerate from 0 to 85 km/h in just six seconds, and can travel 483 km in the daytim and 200 km at night. Developed by da Luz in 1999, it is the first solar car to function in below zero temperatures.
