Default Toyota Prius PHV - Solar Panels!

I'd heard that Toyota had a Prius with solar panels on the roof, like our Karmas, but it was not available in the US due to US rollover test restrictions. Well, I spotted one in Verona (Italy) the other day. They seem to be as rare as chickens' teeth - perhaps because they can only add 3.5 kms of range per day; anyone know if that is true? If even Toyota can't crack the problem of getting useable range out of these PV systems, then they probably are gimmick for the foreseeable future.
