What would be feasible is to have your house store the energy from its rooftop panels as hydrogen, but also at an efficiency penalty compared to a battery in your basement.
Now this ladies and gentlemen is the winner. That is a great idea.

Yeah you basically need a power source to do it and if you have a power source capable of that you might as well power your car with it :)
That's no fun. ;)

Here is a video for all you haters. Watch a Tesla get cut up. Later they will add a new top and convert it into a shooting brake.

Okay, what is the difference between a shooting brake and a wagon?
A proper shooting brake should only have 2 doors, not counting the rear hatch/tailgate/whatever.

Tesla invited institutional investors to take a spin in the new Model 3 at a closed-door event at its showroom in Brooklyn, N.Y. And while some gave favorable reviews in notes to clients, one analyst was decidedly more critical of the new mass-market all-electric sedan.

Toni Sacconaghi, an analyst with Bernstein, wrote, "Fit and finish on the two demo cars we saw ? perhaps not surprisingly ? was relatively poor," CNBC reports. Sacconaghi said he found misalignments in the glass roof, body panels, rubber trim around windows and seams in the interior ceiling.

"Our inspection revealed widespread shortcomings in fit and finish. ... Tesla representatives acknowledged some of the fit issues, but stated that they believed that Model 3 was much further ahead than where Model X and S had been at this point in production," he wrote.

"We do find the statements credible, we can't help noting that Tesla likely chose to share with us its highest quality/best assembled units, so issues on other cars may be even more pronounced."
I don't understand how Tesla can use "well it better than the Model S or X was" as an excuse. No other manufacturer would dream of or dare to show substandard quality to the media. And fit and finish is not something you want to improve as production continues, that's what pre-production is for. Oh wait, Tesla decided to skip pre-production.

It can't be a hatch, it has to be basically a 2 door wagon.

Well, Tesla's are electric, and electricity was discovered by Benjamin Franklin, and Benjamin Franklin did own slaves... plus California is a deeply racist state.


:p
It's surprising because the company is owned by an African American :p
(Franklin didn't discover electricity)

Tesla has gone the way of Faraday Future by having keynotes where they present vaporware:

Has Elon actually ever met a real trucker? Or has anyone from his team ever talked to one before designing the interior?

Of course not, he thinks he knows what people need better than they do, like having all controls in a fucking touch screen.
