    That is 2 cents per mile.

    No when you factor in the car cost you $60K or more.

    Lease $199 per month. The car, I believe is less that $30K after tax write off.

    My car is larger, safer and more fun to drive than the Chevy Volt. Even if they were comparable in size and features, the math still doesn't work out. I own my car and don't need another payment, I can fuel up for $3.50 a gallon, I can drive 400 miles from home and do it again. That is why solar won't work. There is no comparison and there won't be before the decade is out. I doubt I will be able to buy a $12,000 car like mine in my entire life that could run as cheaply as it does now.

    Yes of course but let's not live 2075, we're hungry today.

    Before the decade is out alternative energy, especially solar will be a lot cheaper than fossil. At that point the rush to harness the suns rays will be unprecedented. Oil companies and utilities, despite the immense political pull they possess will be unable to stop the avalanche.

    You're delusional. Solar is already cheaper than fossil, I've been running my solar calculator for ten years without refueling once. But I've never heard of a solar car that can replace mine. If you find me a way to refuel my car (or literally trade my car for one I can use every day that will perform like my gas guzzler: range of 400 miles, easy and quick refueling, costs about 17 cents a mile to drive, can haul 6 passengers and all their luggage) with solar I'll eat crow.

    By the end of the decade? No. Not even close. I doubt even in my lifetime you can find me a car for $12,000 that will operate for $17 cents a mile and perform as listed above on solar power.
