There are (or were) solar car races in the USA and Australia, with the one in the USA running about 2,000 miles. The winner averaged about 41 miles per hour, so they didn't go very fast, but they did get powered totally by the sun. I think it was more of an attempt to see what was possible, as generally these cars are about as useful as a typical racecar for your daily commute (ie, not at all.)
