Saw a "Solar" EV on AliBaba - est. solar range?


So the basics are that it's a conventional looking micro-car with an electric powertrain, weighs 750kg and has a solar panel roof.

The solar roof is approximately 1.3x1.8m

Does anyone have an estimate of approximate km/day you could get out of this by parking it in the sun?

I'm not going to purchase this, it's just a mental exercise, but I do have a use case (and also did previously), where my flat road commute is 50-60km/h zones and a 15km round trip, plus weekly shopping.

It has a claimed range of 100km, and my total driving for the week was 80km (currently more like 40km, because my commute is down to 6km return now). So it would need to add 11.4km/day to never need charging. It does have a plug-in charger though.
