There was a research trial of an electric vehicle in the desert using LiFePO4 batteries and Sanyo solar panels. I forgot the but it was a research journal that I no longer have access to. The researchers didn't need to replace the batteries because they are just charged all throughout the 1000km controlled trip. Something may be impeding the implementation of such technology and I think that they used a non-roadworthy special vehicle instead of an actual car.

Given that Solar panels are pretty inefficient that would have been a slow 1000km, or very much a special vehicle.

so at Overland West 2019 they showed camp kitchen version and it looks very cool. they said its not in production but just idea for people
and they said its connected to main car battery , said in 2 weeks using cooking it would use just about 20kwh /11% of cars battery , which was massive 180kwh
with air suspension it can go up to 14' ground clearance
