Toyota Prius Gets Solar Upgrade

The Prius, Toyota’s flagship hybrid vehicle, is set to get a solar system upgrade for its latest version (version 3) scheduled for release in 2010.

The Prius which is a hybrid vehicle which runs on Toyota’s hybrid synergy drive, will come equipped with a roof covered entirely in solar panels.

Disappointingly the panels will only provide power for the cars air-conditioning unit, in order to reduce energy consumption and reduce the load on the motor vehicles electrical system.

Whilst this doesnt represent a huge step forward to the goal of running production vehicles on solar energy it is nevertheless a small step, one which we hope other motor vehicle production companies will follow suite
