The latest model of Prius comes with a solar roof as an option.  In fact, I have heard something about a plug-in Prius with a solar roof sitting in a parking lot on a sunny day feeding back into the grid once its batteries have topped off.  Solar arrays that double at shade structures in parking lots would seem just as ideal to me.  I would estimate that the reason the trunk lid and hood might not be an option (at present) is because they are moving parts and are perhaps far more prone to damage (and needing replacement), whether in a wreck or simply through typical use, than the roof panel would be.
