The car power is generated from its Thorium reactor. Thorium is an element similar to uranium and has the potential to produce large amount of heat and energy. According to Charles Stevens, CEO of Laser Power System, Just one gram of thorium produces more energy than 28,000 liters of petrol. Just eight grams of thorium would be enough to power the vehicle for its entire life.

Designed with safety in mind, small pieces of thorium were used to produce heat and placed in such a way to create thorium laser. A series of mini turbines are powered by the steam generated from laser heated water. The engine weighs approximately 227 kg.
