car doors can be fashioned out of capacitors now - it is unclear what happens in case of accidents though

Because they are opened and closed quite often, which means that energy can be stored in the capacitors. A capacitor in the roof is pretty meaningless unless you have a roof that lets you open and close it. PS: My bad. Please ignore the above.
