Hyundai has released a version of its Sonata hybrid that has solar panels to help charge its battery.
The Korean car maker said up to 60% of the power for the car's battery could be supplied if the solar roof was used for six hours a day.
The panels would provide enough power to propel the Sonata for 1,300km (800miles) a year, it added.
Hyundai said it planned to offer the roof as an optional extra on other models in its range.

No use on the SLK/C then. Roof in the boot most of the time.

How does the maths stack up?


charge 60% of the batteries power yet only do 800 miles per year?


Unless only planning to drive 1500 miles per year!

I have a solar powered 55.

The sun powered the plants that eventually became oil.

See? A V8 is greener than you think.
