I've been thinking about this recently for the idea of most or all of the van roof with these panels; is it worth it and if so I wonder if the Ford designer/engineers have been trialling any prototypes for their E-Transit. Interesting subject?

I’m very interested in this too. Looks like big manufacturers won’t be doing this for a while.
Hey @solarolla welcome to the forum! I think it's pretty much a cost issue for companies like Ford. There's a European company called Sono Motors that sells a car with solar panels on the roof called the Sion. But it is a small hatchback.

As far as I know, Ford has no plans for it yet, but you can look into universal aftermarket options.
Mercedes has a concept with it and I suspect that as they prepare to launch a production version, so will Ford.
