A CHINESE farmer has created a wind-powered car which he claims can reach speeds of nearly 90mph.

Tang Zhengping, from Beijing, says it took him just three months to design and build the vehicle.

It features batteries and electric generators, a fan in the front and two “solar energy wings” on the back to support electricity generation.

Tang said: “It goes at a maximum speed of 140 kilometers per hour and lasts longer than a normal electric car, which usually doesn’t have generators.

“It has two sets of generators and batteries so one is charging while the other is working.”                                          –WO
