solar power
Embed the roof, hood, and trunk lid of the electric car with solar cells. They can power 2 things...a ventilation system to vent hot air out in the summer when the car is parked and off, and to charge the batteries the rest of the time. Many pets and children are harmed by overheated cars. I think it'd be a great selling/safety feature and I currently use a small solar panel to charge my battery and it works great even in the winter.

Karl Pierson that's a good idea, because photovoltaic cells are light, but it should be a package, at least because they are still pretty expensive. I'd buy it for what it's worth!
