Solar trailers departing from Switzerland have been on a four-year quest to raise awareness of global warming.
It’s called the “solar butterfly,” and its sun-supported “wings” power the Tesla Model X to pull it.
The plan is to cross 90 countries on six continents, including a six-month excursion covering approximately 14,000 miles in Europe.
The Solar Butterfly was created by a former teacher, 50-year-old Louis Palmer.
The University of Lucerne has worked with Palmer to create 226 square feet of craft made from lightweight materials from plastic recycled from the sea.
Palmer says he hopes this will trigger other people to take action to protect the planet.
