Hello, I'm from Lisbon in Portugal and we are going to be the first countrie in Europe to get the first Leafs here and I count to be one of the first to put my hands on one. This is the european countrie with more sunlight hours and that's why I've some questions to make on this amazing forum.
I'm not an expert, and I would appreciate that someone could explain me why doesn't worth to fully cover, at least the roof of the Leaf with high performance flexible photovoltaic panel in order to get as much power as possible while beeing outdoor, instead of that little tiny low performance Nissan wants to provide?
I know that some people will say it's going to be too expensive but Nissan could always make it an option right?
As an example, something like the one we can see in the link below:

I'm sure it could provide even some power to the main battery too and not only fullfill the auxiliary 12v one.
Thank you and once again congratulations for the best forum about the Leaf I ever see. Sorry about my poor english but I'm not a native speaker
All the best with all your Leafs
