You could not drive the iMiev for 200 miles on one charge even if it was entirely coated in high grade solar cells.

This baby can drive over 400 miles (700 km) on one charge, and up to 600 miles in the (Dutch) summer...

In June you can drive this car for 200 miles a day, every day, without ever needing to charge it.
In the winter you'd need one charge a week to maintain 200 miles daily.
If you drive like say 60 miles a day you'd probably never need to charge it.
Blows my mind!
2011 Honda Insight + HID, LEDs, tiny PV panel, extra brake pad return springs, neutral wheel alignment, 44/42 PSI (air), PHEV light (inop), tightened wheel nut.
lifetime FE over 0.17 Gmeter or 0.1 Mmile.
