The optional solar panel in the current generation of the Prius Plug-in Hybrid underlines the technological progress of Toyota in the field of sustainable mobility and is a small component in the implementation of the Toyota Environmental Challenge 2050. The solar roof has a long tradition on the Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid, as this technology was already available in the previous generation. There, the solar cells generate energy for the fans of the air conditioning system and thus ensure that the interior temperature is noticeably reduced even when it is hot. In Japan, the automobile manufacturer is already testing the use of solar cells on other parts of the body, such as the hood or tailgate. In this way, the power of the sun could be used even more extensively in the future
