Undoubtedly some great naff RV would park right next to it and shade it from all light.

According to the blurb the panels are on both sides as well as the roof, and produce a maximum of 3Kw to help charge the lithium batteries which power the electric MH. Even so, the range is estimated to be little over 100 miles.

It's 1st Feb, not 1st April!

Who (with any sense) would put solar panels on the underside of the luton overhang?

Don't be silly Mojo.
That's for when there's snow so it catches the reflection, or perhaps they haven't yet fitted the mirror on the bonnet!  Whistle1   lol4

Being serious for a second.

The range issue is only an issue with our current expectations of charging time.

As battery technology improves, battery capacities will increase, battery weight will drop and charging time will also reduce dramatically.

For example, if you could recharge in 5 minutes for a 200 mile range, that wouldn't be so bad, would it?

My longest journeys for work in the UK are now around 150 miles each way in a day.
If my customer at the other end had a fast charging point which would top the batteries up in say, an hour, I could do that comfortably in a current Tesla Model S or Model X. In fact I'd buy one tomorrow if I won the lottery.

I can envisage driving between campsites around 200 miles in a day in France, and charging the batteries overnight, no problem.

It's a state of mind, similar to the pioneers who drove the first petrol powered vehicles with no infrastructure to support them.
It takes a paradigm change for us to see fossil fuels as obsolete, or at least as a novelty, like the horse and cart became.

IMHO wave
