"What is distinct is the energy efficiency of our vehicles, which suggests that the solar roof can make them self-sufficient in energy. It likewise means that with just 40kg of batteries we can use a range of 280km, which will certainly suit northern latitudes where the sun is not a dependable energy resource.
