Solar-powered Toyota?

Toyota won't just be adding solar panels to its popular Prius gas-electric hybrid car—like the solar electric conversion kit seen at left—it'll be powering a version of it exclusively via sunshine, according to The Nikkei, Japan's business newspaper. In fact, Toyota will be relying on the solar-electric car to "turn around its struggling business," which resulted in its first operating loss in more than 70 years

This is a great idea. It would be interesting to see this in production and pitched against the new Honda Clarity, which I am totally impressed with at the moment.
