The tesla might have a more "ideally" angled cover for solar, but that assumes it's parked ideally also. Parked non-ideally, the angle would be worse than a flat mounted panel. You'd need to always park north facing (on this side of the hemisphere). In a big city like Manhattan, fuggedaboutit. They get zero sunshine year round unless you park on top of a skyscraper.
