2018 Week 42 Lightyear hosts design unveiling of its solar EV model

The young entrepreneur Lex Hoefsloot hosted the design unveiling of the Lightyear One Solar EV in Eindhoven. The team behind the Lightyear One won the Solar challenge a number of times in Australia giving them valuable insights into the development of a Solar EV. The Lightyear One will not be cheap. Lightyear plans to produce 10 launch edition cars in 2020 at a price of €119,000. The funds will be used to facilitate a larger production run in 2021. The Lightyear One can gain between 80 and 70km (44 to 50miles) from its solar system.
