Toyota's third-generation Prius, due at dealerships this spring, will have an optional solar panel on its roof. The panel will power a ventilation system that can cool the car without help from the engine, Toyota says.
I have to agree. It is there for marketing and little else. It's power output is going to be negligible.garygid wrote:The solar panel appears to be just on the rear spoiler, so it seems rather small, thus of very limited power-producing capability.
