Japanese electronics giant Sanyo said Tuesday it had opened two "solar parking lots" in Tokyo where 100 electric hybrid bicycles can be recharged from sunlight-powered panels.

The system uses lithium-ion batteries to charge its bikes, with enough power left over to also illuminate the parking lot with LED lights at night.
