the Toyota Prius and Nissan LEAF have a solar panel option. But, this just runs a cooling fan on the Prius and the cabin accessories on the Leaf. The problem is that solar panels are only around 15% efficient, so there is no way they are going to charge a 24KWH battery, like the Nissan LEAs;#8217&F. Boeing has a solar panel for satelites that is around 45% efficient. Once this technology hits the mainstream, it may be viable for EVs.
