Could this be the future of car garages?


The expansion of getting facilities needs to keep up with higher numbers of electric cars making their way from showrooms to the road. BMW wants to make sure that potential drivers in their premium i3 all-electric and i-8 plugin hybrid cars have a charging port option that functions of the same quality as their BMWi cars and looks as exquisite.

The Solar Carport Concept plans to be an alternative for electric vehicle owners to supply power with their cars independent of electricity costs. Clearly obtaining good efficiency out of it demands dwelling in a sun abundant locality. The carport joined with the BMW i Wallbox Pro, which monitors and regulates vehicle charging may also redirect excessive electricity to utilise in your home.

At present, BMW hasn’t confirmed whether the Solar Carport will get to the production stage, but the growth of the electric car market clearly leaves space for a new-generation of energy providing garages.

Created by DesignworksUSA, BMW's California-based design studio, electric-vehicle recharging through the usage of solar power that is renewable is provided by the Carport Concept. The flat-roof design features 24 thin-glass-on-glass solar collector panels. A modular support prototype imitates lines and surface sculpting from the BMW i-range.
