The Dutch company Lightyear has brought to mind its development – the Lightyear One electric car with a solar battery. Today was the international premiere of the serial version of the car, which entrusted the name Lightyear 0.
So, after six years of development, Lightyear 0 is now available for order. The first deliveries are scheduled for autumn 2022. The price is 250 thousand euros.
As noted in the company, thanks to proprietary technology, Lightyear 0 is equipped with five square meters of solar panels. It is noted that this technology can provide the car with an additional 70 km of range per day and up to 11,000 km per year. Charging for an hour with solar panels should increase range by 10 km. Recharging from a household outlet will give an additional 32 km per hour, and then a fast charging station – 520 km.
The 60 kWh battery alone provides 625 km of WLTP range. The company calculated that if you drive an average of 50 kilometers, then the car can not be charged for months.
With all this, the electric car is able to accelerate from zero to 100 km / h in 10 seconds, and the maximum speed is 160 km / h. There are five seats inside. The infotainment system is equipped with a 10.1-inch touch screen and uses the Android Automotive platform.
496 hp, all-wheel drive and HarmonyOS. Huawei’s first electric car will be presented on September 12 – along with Huawei Mate 50
Judging by the rumors that circulate in the Chinese (and not only) media and relate to the premiere dates of new Huawei products, the company has revised its announcement strategy. If earlier car premieres did not intersect with other devices, now it is the other way around: cars are presented on the same day as smartphones. And so it will be with the company’s first electric car, the Aito M5e.
Recall, the other day it became known that the premiere of the nova 10 series smartphones will take place on July 4, and on the same day, Huawei will present its second car, the large Aito M7 hybrid crossover. It is possible that the car, smartphones and other novelties will make their debut on the same stage. And now the same is being said about Huawei’s first electric car, the Aito M5e. Its premiere is scheduled for September 12, and on the same day, Huawei is rumored to introduce the Mate 50.
There are no official details about the Aito M5e, but the car has already been listed in the Chinese regulator’s database, which has revealed key details. So, Aito M5e will receive two electric motors: 224 hp. on the front axle and 272 hp. – on the back. That is, the crossover will be all-wheel drive. The capacity of the traction battery will be 72 kWh. There is no data on the mileage on a single charge, but you can count on about 500 km.
Aito M5e is a mid-size crossover, its length, width and height are, respectively, 4785, 1930 and 1620 mm. But at the same time, it will be spacious inside, since the length of the wheelbase is 2880 mm. Weight Aito M5e, depending on the capacity of the traction battery, will be 2235 or 2350 kg. Externally, the Aito M5e will repeat the Aito M5 hybrid crossover, the first Huawei car. The interior will also be about the same as the Aito M5 – with a large screen in the center and a multimedia and entertainment system running HarmonyOS.
Prices for electric vehicles soared amid rising costs of materials, logistics and rising gasoline prices
American companies Tesla, Ford, GM, Rivian and Lucid have markedly increased the cost of electric vehicles over the past few months, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Last week, for example, General Motors added $6,250 to GMC Hummer electric pickups, which now range in price from $85,000 to $105,000. General Motors announced a rise in prices for materials and logistics.
Earlier, Tesla raised prices for its entire lineup in the US market, and also increased the cost of the Tesla Model Y crossover in China.
