This is pretty cool futuristic technology that I imagine every car will have in a few decades. It says it can do 155 miles on a full battery charge with no sun. So if you were getting full sun the whole time, I wonder how far it would go? I doubt it can charge faster than it depletes while driving, so you couldn't go forever without stopping, but it probably helps a lot. I bet you could get 300 miles nonstop in full sun.

Yeah this is a good idea if the prices are right. I think one of the Prius or Volt models has solar panels on the roof already, but it's cool to see it used on more of the car. One step closer to solar panel paint!
