Solar based driving with Lightyear One
What started as a student challenge, is now the base for plug-in free mobility. Are we all driving solar cars in the near future?
The solar car, an electric vehicle with built-in solar panels, will be market ready in 2022. If you thought this solar mobility sector is being lead by the almighty Silicon Valley, think again. ‘Captain’ in this solar race is The Netherlands.
With the aim that there will be no new gasoline or diesel driven cars sold by 2030, electric driving will enter a new chapter. A chargeless driving universe. One in which the sun will take over the power to charge our cars.
