haha :: The article states that Toyota has plans to build a 100% solar powered car. Argue that one with their err, "engineers". 0 Replies
Ha ha haa back to you as the article is bullshit indeed and if you look by googling the true story is running some small cooling fans that people with no knowledge of engineering or solar cells had taken to powering the whole car.
There is no way in any case with current technology or any near term technology that you could get enough power to power a car or even to recharge batteries of a car in time periods of less then many many days from solar cells on a car roof.
So unless you only planning on driving a car once a week or so and you also happen to live in a very sunny climate such a car is not in the picture.
Have you not learn yet that information of the internet need to be screen by at least a filter of commonsense?
Hmm I could do the math for you but why bother as this is a story you what to belief in is it not and boring engineering facts are not likely to get in your way?
I remember how I did wish to believe in claimes of cold fusion and then evil facts about how the universe work got in the way...........
OR how as a young man I wish that there was something behind the claims of a reactionless space drive and once more facts got in the way.
In your case it is simple math of the power needed to drive a car or recharge a set of batteries in any sane time period and the maximum power a few square yards of solar cells on a car roof top can generate.
Side note I had help set up solar cells, wind mills battery systems to give power to people off the power grid.
