Panasonic Unveils Solar Roof That May Appear on the Tesla Model 3 – The Drive

The type of solar panels currently available on vehicles typically power only 12-volt batteries that are used to support key-on and -off functions plus some on-board electronics features, such as air conditioning or infotainment. However, Panasonic’s Photovoltaic Module HIT has a 180-watt output capability, which would enable it to charge a vehicle’s lithium-ion batteries, as well. This means that Panasonic’s solar roof could extend the driving range of a plug-in hybrid or electric vehicle, and increase fuel economy where applicable.
