I love the way the solar panels fold out. It looks just like a space station with its solar sails raised.

A better way to charge would be to put big solar panels on your garage, and plug your vehicle into that. The only problem there is that the solar panels need to be where your vehicle is during the day. For most of us that means at a job somewhere.

It would be a great way to do it for home businesses and at-home parents.
