Do the new Volkswagen electric cars have solar panels?

I’ve been a loyal Volkswagen driver since my first-ever car, and I’ve been very interested in test driving their new electric car. Of course, I’m happy to charge my car at home, but I’d love to drive a car that can generate its own power source through clean energy such as solar panels. Do the new electric cars from Volkswagen offer this?

Shopping around for a new car in the age of
electric vehicles
is an exciting experience, so cheers to your new adventure! As far as solar panels go, while some cars such as the
Ioniq 5 have solar panel roof technology to provide energy to parts of the car,
has yet to adopt this for any of their electric cars.
Of course, just because you don’t have solar panels directly on your car doesn’t mean you can’t use them to generate clean energy to power up your car’s battery. If you charge your car at home, installing a solar panel system on the roof of your house can not only provide a clean, renewable energy source for your car but will lower your energy bill overall!
