Solar powered Prius

Now that’s what I’m talking about!  In our quest for a new car for me, we are hoping to hold out until the Prius with the solar panels is sold.  That gives a whole new meaning to “sun roof” doesn’t it?  If you are interested, you can read about it in this article from Treehugger.  Who knows if this will actually happen, but according to this Reuters article, Toyota has announced their plans to add panels to the high end Prius in 2009.  It will power the air conditioning.  Isn’t that cool (pun intended)?  We’ll see if my little Saturn can hold out that long, and if this actually comes to pass.  If you have a first gen Prius, will you be upgrading if this actually happens? Please comment, and have a nice day!
