    Infuriating if you ask me.

    I expected the video to be terrible, but, to be honest, after watching the first few couple of minutes, I'd say I'm intrigued.

    No such thing as a Muslim baby.

    Adult Muslims on the other hand.. yes I'd have to agree.

    The electric cars coming out are half hearted still.

    Electric cars need the roof to be completely laid out with a big solar panel. The solar panel being the actual building block of the car, like some concept houses you build out of solar bricks instead of normal bricks.

    The roof is about 1 square meter. 1 square meter of most modern solar panel, delivers roughly 150w ,if modern solar panels are used.

    Imagine the whole hull of the car being made out of solar panels except some critical zones often getting hit in crashes.

    You would have around 500w - given about 6 hours of sunshine per day on average, we get roughly 3 kw/h out of those panels.

    1 kw/h is enough to drive an electric car about 5-10km distance depending on how you drive.

    So each day, you would get 15-30 km free driving. For some people this is enough.
    Now imagine, this car would, when you park it, draw out another four solar panels which were stacked up under the first panel on the roof, and turn them towards the sun automatically each time you park.

    This would double the output, and your car would charge enough to drive 30-60km per day without tanking anything.


    The current price per watt for solar modules is roughly $3. 1000w would cost $3000 if buying bulk, much less if the car company orders them with a contract.

    Let s assume only 10km per day using such modules. That s 3600km per year those modules give you to drive free. In Europe even after a year, the modules would have generated their cost.
    I was very conservative on the 10km. The real value if done as stated above, would be 30km per day and up to 60km at sunny areas.

    Of course, if you do all this private, you also have to pay for someone to put those modules in and have to buy all the extra stuff required to transfer the energy from the modules to the batteries.
    Something which car companies could do easily.

    So the question is.. why would car companies not lay out their electric cars hull completely with solar panels?

    They've tried it just isn't practical yet. They need to refine the solar panel technology for this to be truly viable.

    I'm a bit surprised that there isn't more conversation about the actual video presented.

    I suspect I'm the only person who's watched it.
