The MS Tûranor PlanetSolar is the world’s largest solar-powered boat and the first ever solar-electric vehicle to circumnavigate the globe. Over 5,300 square feet of 93 kW PV panels line the surface of the catamaran, powering an electric motor with a maximum output of 120kW. The panels, electric motor and 8.5 tons of lithium-ion batteries allow the PlanetSolar to travel the high seas using no gasoline and releasing no carbon emissions.
