Turtle Solar film - could it help power a vehicle?

I read recently about a new development in solar collectors. It was a thin film that could be put over windows to collect solar power to be turned into electricity. Apparently the electrons were located along the edges of the film.

My thought was when (or if) this technology becomes economically feasible to use, could one put it on an electric car's hood(or even on a rechargeable hybrid), trunk and roof and then help to charge the batteries with it? I don't know enough about solar power to know if a solar converter and a charger would weigh a lot.
