IMO, definitely not practical and may not ever be unless there are some downright huge advances in solar tech.
It would take TONs of solar panels to charge a vehicle battery the size needed for our vans in any practical timeframe. Not worth it IMO, better to put solar on your house and use that to charge your batteries :)

This coming from someone that absolutely loves solar and the convenience of it for my house and RVs. I would love to have an electric vehicle if I actually drove often enough for it to make sense. I will stick with the solar that is on my house and solar for charging RV house batteries.

I have a 1994 safari. My engine in knocks and my transmission is going out. It is my first vehicle. But now I can't drive it reliability and I don't want to V8 swap it. So should I either buy another V6 or get my V6 rebuilt? I'm already leaning on buying a 4L65E Transmission to put in it

I pulled out a knocking engine from the front of a 1994 Astro. The top radiator mount just unbolted and i pulled it out the front. wasn't too tough
