Priced at 250,000 Euros! The world's first solar-powered car goes into production, about 150 pre-orders have been received
Lightyear, a Finnish solar electric vehicle start-up company, said that the company began to produce solar electric vehicles, which is the world's first mass-produced electric vehicle that directly uses sunlight to generate electricity.

The model "Lightyear 0" is priced at 250,000 euros, and about 150 reservation orders have been received so far.

Company CEO and co-founder Lex Hoefsloot said about 1,000 Lightyear 0s were planned to be built at the Valmet Automotive Oyj car plant in Finland.

It will start at the rate of producing one vehicle per week, and gradually increase to five vehicles per week in the second half of next year.

AndroBliz has previously reported that according to the test drive conducted by electrek, Lightyear 0 is equipped with 782 IBC monocrystalline silicon solar cells on the outside, divided into 28 different independent groups, covering a total of 5 square meters of solar panels.

Lightyear 0 reportedly provided around 43 kilometers of range on the first day of solar-powered driving alone, and that was cloudy. During a four-hour drive by a small group, about a third of the range came from solar power, and only 20 percent of the vehicle's battery was used.
