Hi,

Looks like they put all the solar panels on the left side of the roof.

No Terry,
That is where the tray of AA batteries go.

I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

For a solar powered truck, it looks awfully dirty with diesel soot on the rear barn doors.

The tail lights appear to have festoon globes, so 100 percent bullshit I would suspect

I think the idea is about creating turbulence to make it more slippery. Similar to the idea of making the whole side rough like shark's skin which was proven to have a benefit (but never produced commercially)

Vortex generators.

They do work but only at fairly high speed.

You will see them on the roof of Mitsubishi EvoVIII/IX vehicles.

They are designed to break up the air flow and make it flow down the rear window and over the high mounted wing.

And yes they do work, but I question their use on trucks.
