    A long time to charge indeed, if only the solar roof is used.

    One panel of 160x80cm (64×32″) (17.8% efficiency) will generate approximately 195 kWh in a year, if positioned correctly and left in the sun every day (in my rainy, Dutch climate).
    Most electric cars have batteries with a capacity of between 20 and 35kWh… Even if this car has a large roof for such a small car (160x160cm?), you wouldn’t be able to charge it more than 10 to 20 times a year, using the solar roof…

    Could come in handy if you’re out of power and only a short distance from home. Leave it on a parking spot for a while and then go on home. No need for towing…
