The latest prototype solar-powered electric vehicle, the Lightyear One, recently showed a huge range. With a battery with a capacity of about 60 kWh, he was able to drive 710 km without recharging on a test track in Germany. The Dutch company Lightyear is expected to unveil the production Lightyear One electric car next year.

Announcing the development of Lightyear One, the startup promised a range of 725 km per charge. According to the published data, this indicator is already within reach.

It will not be superfluous to clarify that the above indicator of autonomy was obtained when driving at a speed of about 85 km / h. The test took over nine hours. At the same time, the drivers changed every two hours.

The integration of solar panels provides an increase in mileage on a sunny day by about 70 km. The test took place on a cloudy day, so the solar battery provided only about 40 km of run.
