While the car is seating out baking in the sun, I would much rather have the sun charging the battery at the same time. I would think that the technology should already exist? With the glut of solar panel, it would be great if they are offered as an option to the upcoming C-Max, for example.
Better yet... perhaps the solar panel an generate enough electricity to power a cooling system for the battery while the car is baking under the sun, in a bid to preserve the battery life?
