This solar powered electric car can drive for months without recharging

Dutch automotive startup Lightyear has officially lifted the lid on its “production-ready” Lightyear 0 – a solar-powered electric vehicle (EV) that can run for up to seven months without a charge.

The result of six years of research and development, the Lightyear 0 features an array of curved solar panels on the roof and bonnet, complementing a small 60kWh battery pack. This combination gives the car an impressive range of 625 km (388 miles), of which 70 km (44 miles) comes from solar power alone, according to the company.
