The Ultimate Green Car: Built-In Solar Panels To Power Electric Vehicles

At least two startups are planning to offer EVs that generate their own electricity on the go from built-in solar panels, and more may be on the way.

Solar panels on trucks are already a thing, but they are generally meant as an add-on, providing an auxiliary source of electricity for lifts, lighting, air conditioning and other accessories. This new crop of solar powered passenger cars takes it up to the next level by providing motive power.
