I was going to suggest the same thing.

Look at reflective surfaces materials and colours for solid areas of the vehicle and tints for the windows.

Keep in mind too the road will add to the heat gain so under vehicle reflective materials may also be needed.

This will help decrease the demand for cooling and the associated power demand.

God luck with the project.
