Lightbulb P-MOB electric car travels 20 km on solar power alone

GIZMAG. I wonder how much of this vehicle could be used in a Smart ED to make it have a great range?

The shape of the car does not seem that much different from a Smart car.

It depends on how many miles is "great". The output per sq. ft. of solar panels is not anywhere near what we would need to get any kind of range. If I remember correctly, it is currently about 10 Watt per sg ft.
