Looks like some are not wasting any time and already asking for fuel efficiency goals to be scrapped http://www.autonews.com/article/20161110/OEM11/161119989/automakers-reach-out-to-trump-on-regulation-seek-review-of-fuel

A completely solar powered bus.   Not a car, but a bus?  No batteries?  No connection to external power?

Don't think this is real or possible.  No Way  Panels can't produce enough energy....In fact there isn't enough energy in sunlight.  If this was true, the world would be a different place.  

I must be misunderstanding something. must be a back up engine in there.  The first paragraph of this article must be wrong.

Lets get realistic here, someone misread something.

None of this alters the fact that buses are public. You have to share them with other people, their luggage, taste in music, body odours and potential diseases.

They also become even less inviting if you have some sort of burden to transport.

OK, there are some, but the latest generation of bus is very smooth. As a London resident, I'm impressed at how much of the time the latest generation of hybrid bus (like the "Boris bus") run on battery and the difference this makes to passengers (and cyclists, as I also cycle a lot in London). And we already have some Chinese electric buses in London (or maybe they're about to be deployed).
