Fiat introduces solar-powered car charging station

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - San Diegans can now drive on sunshine.

Kearny Mesa Fiat introduced a new solar charging station Monday that can power its electrical cars.

The charging station was built by US-based Envision Solar, and consists of a solar panel that transforms sunlight into energy.

A Kearny Mesa Fiat representative tells us this technology helps protect the environment.

"I mean there's no carbon footprint for these solar charging stations. All solar, so it's a very eco-friendly solution, especially being in San Diego having that much sunshine here," Kearny Mesa Fiat President and CEO Javier Soriano said.

The station can charge up to two cars at a time and is so small it can be moved around in a pickup truck.
