Default Fisker Santa Monica features solar-powered sign

Even the dealer sign is solar powered! A nice touch IMO.

Definitely a nice touch!

At the moment I am installing 64 solar panels on the roof of my company (11.500 Wp), which will be used to charge my Karma (and make the building self-sustaining). I've been designing - online - a sticker to put on the back of the car, with the text 'solar powered' (or 'electric'). I found an italic font in a light green color that resembles the one used in EVer, so it will fit nicely.

The problem I have with the EVer-sign is that it doesn't show the car is an electric car. Most people will think it is just another, rather nice looking gas guzzler, which is a shame as the thousands of Karma's will be frontrunners, that are supposed to make people enthusiastic about electric cars.

Nice visual element, but pretty much useless sitting in the front of the sign like that. If they put it on top of the sign, it may contribute some power to the sign, but I am guessing that sign is going to use up a lot more than the 200W a single panel can generate.

If they are LEDs it might be able to pull it off.
