Since this sunroof is powered by a solar PV panel, it doesn’t drain power from your vehicle’s battery.
You’ll see that this sunroof has a multi-pane roof and forms one pane when it’s closed. It also tilts and opens further than traditional sunroofs.
Top-Mounted Sliding Sunroof
This type of sunroof moves along tracks above the roof on the outside of your vehicle. It provides extra headroom in your vehicle.
The spoiler sunroof is popular on many vehicles. It features a tilting action that opens the sunroof and slides on a track along the vehicle’s roof.
Moonroof vs. Sunroof
When you hear some people say they have a moonroof and others say they have a sunroof, you may wonder what the difference is. A moonroof is a type of sunroof. It is made of all glass and lets light in even when it’s closed.
The term moonroof was coined in the 1970s to describe a panel in a vehicle’s roof that is made of glass. These days, a sunroof is used to describe any roof panel on your vehicle that lets in light and air.
