Newton: I also don't like "skylights" in my vehicles.
I hope there is a roof rack that can be purchased with the CT. I will get and put 5 x 350+ W PV's on with a charge controller to hopefully V2CT charging capability. AND use it at home V2House :)

yea, totally agree. the glass roof is cool and all but for a work truck it WILL get scratched .

most the cars I have owned have carried things on the roof without roof racks.
CT doesn't have a "glass" roof. All the glass is supposedly armoured glass or transparent aluminum... But I'm worried too.
Some companies give out free samples and I know you like to do experiments. Maybe test Alon to see what it's like?

I think the transparent aluminum (which is really just an aluminum based ceramic, its properties are much more like glass then metal) is a guess for the CT glass. I don't remember seeing anything other than rumor that it is what will be used. But according to wiki its 4x harder than regular glass.

...But that's bad for the structure of the roof. I bent my Honda doing that 'cause I didn't have a basket.

Elon said it was transparent aluminum on jay leno... No he didn't. He said Tesla armour glass.. somewhere I thought he said it's transparent aluminum.... It the same place he discussed the difficulties in optical clarity of the slope of the flat windshield, maybe someone can help me out?
