Lightyear is a small business that was founded by five students that attended the University of Eindhoven. Together, they developed and test the One, and finally, after years of work, the car is being produced.
The Lightyear One is, as we reported back in June of 2019, a cross between a Honda Clarity and a typical single-seater solar car. This now production car features four doors and an extremely modern cabin. All expected creature comforts are accounted for including Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, wireless charging, and cup holders.
The One is powered by four in-wheel motors which will bring the five-meter-long car to 100 km/h in about 10 seconds. The extremely aerodynamic electric car is said to offer up to 725 km of range (WLTP). This solar car is covered in five square meters of solar cells capable of providing more than 60 km of additional range.
Only 946 examples of this unique, according to Automobile Propre, ultra-efficient, lightweight car will be assembled. Reservations are open now and the initial down payment is the full asking price of 150,000 euros. The car is offered in Europe and specifically in Norway and Switzerland.
