Nowadays, the world is suffering from global warming, hence the Earth's temperature rises, this problem affects our lives in different ways. Moreover, the scientists have not found a ground solution for global warming. However, they are searching for methods of avoidance, so they could ameliorate the risk of human beings getting affected, as they could never stop this natural phenomenon from occurring. Not only global warming affects us, but also affects automobiles roaming on the Earth's surface. If cars are parked in a sunny area for long time, the temperature inside will increase and the seats would be boiling hot. Therefore, the driver has to wait until the seats cool off so he could get going, as he might be negatively affected by the car's high temperature. The launch of electric vehicles with a few battery charging stations is another hurdle for its sustainability. The work presented in this paper is development of a canopy to protect the cars from the Sun and use it to charge these cars with a certain design by setting a solar panel of specific dimensions at the roof of the car. The developed canopy is controlled during charging. The canopy is a low cost and plug-play kind of solution which can be purchased as an accessory and can be fitted on the rooftop.
