A solar powered car — directly solar powered car, a new residential solar panel from Prosun, and the 496,000 unit collapse of the US auto market in the first quarter — those were the most popular stories on CleanTechnica last week. I know what you’re thinking — how did solid-state batteries and BP not make the top 3? Indeed, they closed out the top 5.

Joking aside, it wasn’t until the #6 spot that a Tesla story popped onto the scene. What a week! This is stranger than the week a true UFO sighting was more or less confirmed.
