 I am still looking to buy the following:

1 a QUALITY electric car.

2. The car must have a removable battery pack.

3. The car must have a wheeled dolly to remove the pack (if needed)
I could probably fabricate my own dolly.

4. solar panels to charge one pack during the day, while I'm out
driving the car.

5. I suppose a large capacitor could be charged by the panels; then
the charged dumped into the car's batteries at night without having to
transfer battery packs.

The whole package must have a good warranty.

There is no reason to plug the car into the grid when one or two
of sunlight or cloudy bright sunlight on 1200watts of solar panels
do the job

There is no reason why consumers should have to put together or
fabricate the above with no guarantee of success.

 Anyone building a 100% solar powered car out there like this with a

You don't mention  _range_  at all   .. probably the most restrictive
aspect of battery powered vehicles.
But warranty seems a concern for some reason ?
 Good luck with your search.

You didn't mention range or speed, so there are electric fork lifts on the
market that will meet your requirements.  Any battery pack can be charged
with solar power, just add your own panels and charge controller.

 With today's technology what you are asking for would cost somewhere
close to half a million dollars and would have limitted range. With
mains charging a hundred grand might do it.

It would void the laws of physics, given a sensible range.

No, because it can't be done.
