Lightyear – One

.


Vehicle Overview

The Lightyear One is a prototype all-electric solar car. Announced on 25 June 2019, production is scheduled to start in 2021.

The Lightyear One is a large hatchback, with the bonnet, roof and boot clad with 5 m2 (54 sq ft) of solar panels, with a WLTP (Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure) range of 725 km (450 miles) and designed with a drag coefficient of Cd=0.20. The company Lightyear claims there are 1,000 solar panels across the car that can add 50-65 km (30-40 miles) of range per day during summer.

The car is all-wheel drive, with four in-wheel electric hub motors powered by a low-mounted battery. It seats five adults and luggage.

The solar panel design was born out of the Solar Team Eindhoven’s solar-powered cars for the World Solar Challenge. Design work on the One was carried out together with GranStudio in Italy.
