The Lightyear One Is A Real Self-Charging Electric Car. Here’s What We Know So Far

Tesla has helped transform the way electric cars are viewed around the world thanks to its range of fast, sexy electric cars.

Now a handful of companies are trying to change the way people view solar cars too — working hard to produce cars that don’t even need to plug in in order to be driven. A truly self-charging electric car, if you will.

Earlier this week, Dutch company Lightyear unveiled its LightYear One plug-in solar hybrid car. It can charge from a regular electric car charging station or CCS quick charge station — but thanks to 1.25 kilowatts peak of solar panels on its body, it can also add an impressive 50-70 km of range per day simply by being parked outside.

Here’s everything we know so far — and everything you need to know!
