Though it wasn't a world premier, Daimler displayed the Smart Forvision, a diminutive electric concept. The car’s roof is speckled with translucent holes that allow light to filter from above but also double as solar panels to help support this little EV’s power system.

Smart has been experimenting with variations on this theme, as we saw recently in the Smart Forspeed concept.
