Inspired by: On a clear day, the earth’s surface receives approximately 1 kW of solar energy per square meter. Given that a highly efficient 4 square meter PV panels can generate roughly 8 kWh of energy per day, it will only drive your car for about 25 miles (40 km).
FYI Avg miles per day in the USA is 30.
If we use solar energy to replace gasoline, diesel, or electric vehicles then there will not be issues related to fuel, Green energy, availability, save money (the sun will always be there), minimum CO2 emissions, etcetera.
