The World’s First Solar Car To Be Launched This Year

Lightyear, the high-tech company developing the world's first solar car, launched its production vehicle, Lightyear 0. After six years of R&D, design, engineering, prototyping, and testing, this premier solar car is slated to go into production this fall. It will enable drivers to freely travel for up to seven months without plugging into a household outlet or charging station. Through Lightyear 0, the company is offering a new future for motorists who want the freedom of mobility with the peace of mind of sustainable energy. Lightyear 0 features five square meters of patented, double curved solar arrays, allowing the vehicle to charge itself while commuting or simply parked outdoors. In optimal conditions, this enables Lightyear 0 to power itself with 70 kilometers of range per day on top of its estimated 625 kilometers WLTP range.
