Looking out the window today, I noticed the Leaf parked outside our building. As I looked at it, I couldn’t help but notice something that didn’t make much sense, and I’m looking to you to solve this mystery...

There appears to be a very small patch of solar panels on top of the wing on the car. Very small, far too small to contribute in any meaningful way to propelling the car, so I can’t imagine that’s what it is for. What is it for?!
