BMW's new conceptual Solar Carport for electric cars will let you charge your EVs by just parking underneath it. BMW's DesignworksUSA division showcased the concept and says that it is a simple yet effective idea to charge your car using the power of the sun.

The Solar Carport directs the electricity to the car through the BMW i Wallbox Pro. The i8 plug-in hybrid sports car has a pure-electric driving range of around 37 kilometers or 22 miles.

BMW did not mention any plans for consumer production.
