    Sunroof on a hybrid

    My RX400h has a sunroof as standard equipment. I use it frequently.

    Sunroof on a hybrid

    I have a 2006 Prius on order and am seriously considering adding a sunroof to it...

    - Anyone know of any issues in adding a sunroof to the Prius (affecting wires, cables, infrastructure, airbags, etc.)?

    - Any suggestions on how to get a sunroof installed?

    The solar panel would be very kewl too. I'm wondering if that post about the solar panel was just a comment of fiction or a possibility in reality...

    - If it's a possibility, any suggestions on how'd I go about getting a solar panel installed?

    They mod the Scion to the hilt, I say why not add some after-market urban flare to the Prius!
    The roof, the roof...

    Sunroof on a hybrid

    Driving around the San Francisco Bay area a few days, I saw a Honda Civic Hybrid with a sunroof. Must have been an after-market add-on.

    Who can wait? I did a little more Googling and unf, it doesn't sound like there's an immediate, cost-effecitve way to add solar (or plug-in) power to the Prius. But there IS progress in that direction! Some links with commentaries below...

    Now, I'd be glad to generate some vitamin D myself with a sun roof if I could find something on the web about it!

    Roof, the Renewable Energy Access website you mention has a comments section which discusses the roof-mounted solar cells as being a fraud. For an investment of over $2000, they generate 1/25 horsepower, which is utterly insignificant.

    I've read the new Camry hybrid will have a sunroof as an added cost option.

    Sunroof on a hybrid

    The sunroof, on the smaller cars such as the Prius ad civic, which I have recently purchased, will sacrifice the structural integrity of the vehicle and thus safety features won't be nearly as effective, i.e. side curtain airbags, crumple zones. A sun roof has always been a "must have" feature for me, but the sacrifice is well worth it. My advice is if you want sun so badly, go for a walk.

    Sunroof on a hybrid

    I just bought a slightly used 05 Escape hybrid, trading in my 98 Passport in on it. Man do I miss that sunroof. Having said that though, I know that glass is heavier than metal and I will accept the lighter weight/lack of sun of my FEH for the sake of better mpg.
