Solar Electric VW Bus
While not on the road when I saw it, I did see this VW bus converted to electric (over 100 miles per charge) with enough solar panels to fully recharge it 3 days.  It's a camper that sleeps the couple and their two kids.  I also talked to the converter/owner, and saw their solar lawnmower, and solar scooter.  (20 mile range, recharges in a few hours.)

There's a guy down near LA that has converted an older VW bus... he's got a youtube channel with a lot of fun stuff going on.

I saw the video a while back. Once again a fine example of someone doing what works for them and having fun.

Not very practical for most people. Three days charging for two hours driving? Inconvienient at the least, dangerous at worst. I visit friends 200 miles away several times a year, this rig would require nine days to make the round trip and an additional three to recharge once I got home!! A few years back I could have done it in four days on my bicycle! HA!
