Solar-charged Tesla puts a smile on their faces

There’s nothing like a solar-charged Tesla to put a smile on your face.

In fact, it’s pretty much smiles all-around for all of the lucky folks who get a test ride in Mike Koenigs’ solar-charged Roadster in the YouTube video embedded at the top of this entry.

And why not? What’s not to like?

It’s clean, green fun, and, of course, there’s the totally awesome fueling independence angle, a theme we’ve been playing up this Independence Week.

No middlemen. No oil men. And no price gouging.

Just you, your home’s roof, a solar PV system – and your electric car of choice.

We think that’s definitely something to smile about, don’t you?
