Didn't say a car can't be outside; rather I said that when it's parked, the proper place is in the garage where its protected from nature.

An EV can get a charge while parked via the charging port. Forcing charging through the tiny straw that is the installed solar is ludacris (without the mode selection).

This car should appeal to tens of people. A neat engineering exercise, but of no practical value.
