The Lightyear 0 became the first production vehicle to be powered by solar energy when the first unit came down the assembly line yesterday. Equipped with solar panels on the roof, and the hood, Lightyear says the 0 can add up to 70 kilometres of range per day in the sun, depending on where it is located. Indeed, the total solar range of the car varies depending on where it is used, which means that it can drive for around two months in the Netherlands without having to be plugged in while moving to Portugal means the 0 can go for about seven months on solar energy only. Unsurprisingly, given that it is the first car of its kind to reach production, the Lightyear 0 will not be affordable for everyone, with a starting price of 250,000 Euros ($352,700 CAN).
