    I'm skeptical that a few square feet of solar PV could generate enough electricity to propel the car more than a few feet.

    My middle school, Harker, built a solar powered Fiero in 1997/8 and the top speed was less than 50 mph and had a range of 5 miles if I remember correctly. It looked similar to this one.

    My favorite German hydrogen toy, a worthy match for the near silent Russky subs,
    spends up to 3 weeks at high speeds undetectable without one resurfacing:

    And better keep it under water than this:

    Talk about a slow electric battery fires, but then a fuel cell charging
    station hydrogen mushroom and the metallurgic temperatures involved?

    Remember the Hindenburg?
