    Yep... When Chris asked "who here drives a solar powered car?" he raised his hand.

    (I was tempted, but rooftop solar -> Grid -> EV didn't exactly count in this case. )

    I would have raised my hand if I were you. That's what Chris and many others with RAVs and Teslas do and they count themselves as Solar powered.

    That is my intention as well. I plan to claim a solar powered car - although in my case it will be more solar -> lead acid batteries -> EV.
