The world's only solar powered car made its way through Sacramento Sunday.It's a strange looking thing that resembles a boxcar attached to a long flat bed and it's about the length of a tractor trailer. The solar panels are on that flat bed and they're connected to a battery and an engine.

The car goes about 60 miles an hour and it rarely breaks down.

Its Swiss creator is taking it around the world. This is his 28th country and he said he's only had to do repairs twice.
