Sun takes Ki-moon to work
Ban Ki-moon pulled up outside the U.N. headquarters in the unusual looking two-seater. Louis Palmer, the Solartaxi's inventor, was in the driving seat.
The Solartaxi, built in Switzerland, is on a promotional tour around the world to raise awareness of climate change.
The UN Secretary-General said the ride was “fantastic”, adding that the Solartaxi sends a good message to those looking for creative and practical solutions to energy issues.
