The hood and roof of the Lightyear 2 electric car are covered with solar panels. In clear weather, they provide a power reserve of up to 70 km per day.
At the CES show in Las Vegas, the new Lightyear 2 was announced. The second model from the Dutch startup should appear in 2025 and will cost less than 40,000 euros in the basic version. This was reported on the official website of the company.
Lightyear specializes in creating electric cars with solar panels. Their first production model Lightyear One is already on sale, but it turned out to be too expensive – it costs from 250,000 euros. Therefore, it will be released in a limited series of 946 cars and decided to create a more affordable electric car.
The first teasers show that the new Lightyear 2 is a D-class liftback with a streamlined design. The sloping roof, aerodynamically optimized sidewalls and wheels with special hubcaps achieve a record low drag coefficient of 0.175.
The roof and hood of the Lightyear 2 are covered with solar panels. On a clear day, they provide up to 70 km of power reserve. In urban use, this is more than enough for everyday driving, which means that the battery can not be recharged.
Charging will have to be used in gloomy weather or on long trips. In this case, the range will be 800 km.
