Fully solar cars are a long way off if they ever materialize at all. But solar enhanced cars are definitely in the near future. For example, Toyota’s Prius has an optional solar panel that powers it’s ventilation system totally on its own power. You know how when you leave you car too long in the sun on a hot sunny day how hot the interior is when you first sit down?
An advantage of this solution is that by mounting the solar array at a stationary location instead of on the vehicle, power can be maximized and resistance minimized. A disadvantage is that the virtual grid-connection involves more electrical losses than with true solar vehicles, and the battery must be larger.
