The Toyota Prius Solar Panel Roof feature is an impressive feature in an already class-leading hybrid vehicle. Solar panels located on the roof of your new Toyota Prius absorb the sun’s rays and use that absorbed solar energy to power the vehicle’s ventilation system. So, while your Prius is parked in the sun it is actually storing energy and powering the ventilation system and fan, maintaining a cooler temperature on the interior of your vehicle. With the Solar Panel Roof feature you will never have to get into a hot, steamy car again.
How do you activate the Solar Panel Roof feature?
There are two primary ways to activate the Solar Panel Roof feature and keep your Prius cool in the dog days of summer. First, you can enable the solar-powered ventilation system before exiting your vehicle with a button located on the interior dashboard of the 2015 Toyota Prius. The second method, is even more impressive, because the Solar Roof Panel feature provides Remote Air Conditioning.
