This solar powered electric car can run for months without charging

Dutch automotive startup Lightyear has officially lifted the lid on its “production-ready” Lightyear 0 – a solar-powered electric vehicle (EV) capable of running for up to seven months without being connected to a traditional charger.

The product of six years of research and development, the Lightyear 0 features a series of curved solar panels on its roof and hood to complement a small 60 kWh battery pack. That combination gives the car an impressive range of 388 miles (625 km), 44 miles (70 km) of which are derived from solar power alone, according to the company.
