ChairmanLMAO March 30, 2021 06:16 AM What the heck?!? Now, all the cool nice looking cars are electric? This is another car I would like in ICE version. DavidB March 30, 2021 08:25 AM No worries, @ChairmanLMAO. You can still grab a gas-guzzler...for a few more years, anyway, during which time you can strike oil in your back garden and learn how to turn it into gasoline. ljaques March 30, 2021 09:27 AM 42. Yessiree, that vast amount of solar roofing will power that car for a whopping 42 microseconds. Or it can recharge the low battery in 6-8 weeks, your choice! Sizzle them snausages, Bumble Motors, or was that Humboldt? By 2024, that $109k will have risen to $200k, methinks. Signguy March 30, 2021 11:35 AM Lots of promises... BlueOak March 30, 2021 11:41 AM "the Humble One is some 766 lb (348 kg) lighter than Tesla's Model S Plaid, while putting out the same kind of power and claiming 500 miles of range against the Tesla's 390 miles. That strikes us as a tad fishy"Indeed - that's the kind of no BS writing we love at New Atlas!Theres a reason nobody has seriously put solar panels on the roof of an electric vehicle. It produces a trivial amount of charging capacity at current solar panel efficiences on the limited surface of a vehicle. And even if solar panel technology doubled in efficiency, it would remain a fool's errand.As the 20+ eVehicle startups in California and elsewhere can attest, hollow boasts, renderings, mockups and one-offs, do not produce a successful ongoing entity. Ask Musk how easy it was. EJ222 March 30, 2021 12:13 PM @BlueOak On top of that, it adds more weight and cost, which is exactly what an EV doesn't need. Eggbones March 30, 2021 09:18 PM 80 square feet? So say, 5 feet wide by 16 feet long? I somehow doubt it. Will Betush March 31, 2021 06:44 AM I proposed this concept to Musk three years ago via twitter. Not original, bet the patent doesn't hold up. CAVUMark March 31, 2021 05:00 PM I guess the grill is designed to gather plankton to convert into electricity? dougspair April 4, 2021 07:05 AM That grille, gotta' be quite a drag....and electric cars need that for what reason..?
