Lightyear 0: World’s First Solar Electric Vehicle Goes into Production, Here is all you need to know

Lightyear 0: This car is equipped with solar panels that can provide a range of up to 44 miles per day. Lightyear 0, a solar-powered electric car that can last for months between charges, has finally entered production. According to Jalopnik, the Dutch start-up recently announced that it has started building its ground-breaking debut car. Lightyear 0 isn’t the only solar electric vehicle in development, but it’s the first to enter production

Amazing and challenging car design from it’s competitor 

When automakers are in such a hurry to bring electric vehicles to market, it can be challenging to design something that will differentiate themselves from the competition. At first glance, this sedan may appear to be the same as any other premium electric vehicle (EV), but the top of the vehicle is lined with solar panels that help keep the 60 kWh battery charged. These panels extend from the hood to the trunk lid.

Just how much mileage do solar panels produce, and what impact does the battery have on climate change?

The amount of time it takes to charge your vehicle is significantly impacted by the presence of solar panels. According to Lightyear, the panel enables to travel up to 44 kilometres in a single day. It might not seem like much, but according to the company, a driver in the Netherlands who travels that distance in a day can easily make it through the summer without needing to charge their vehicle for two months straight. According to Jalopnik, the amount of time that passes between charges can be increased to seven months if you live in a country with a warmer climate, such as Portugal. Even during the winter months, when visibility is at its lowest, range shouldn’t be too much of a problem. According to his WLTP test cycle in Europe, 0 has a range of 388 miles on a single charge of its battery.

By the end of the year 2023, the company’s goal is to produce five automobiles each and every week

According to an article that was written about the company and published in CNN in June of this year, the car will reportedly have a range of approximately 388 miles without needing to stop to refuel, and it will have an additional range of up to 43 miles per day from the solar panels. To put that in perspective, that is only marginally more than the range of a Tesla Model 3 (374 miles), but it is significantly more than the range of a Kia Niro Long Range (285 miles). According to Lightyear, the battery will receive an additional six miles of charge for every hour that it spends in the sun.

Prior to this announcement, Lightyear had stated that it intended to produce only 964 Lightyear 0 models at its factory in Finland. The brand anticipates that initially only one vehicle will be produced each week off of the assembly line, but that number will eventually rise to five by the end of 2023.
