This year’s international Consumer Electronics Show (CES), recently held in Las Vegas, won’t be easily forgotten. Traditional auto companies like VW, BMW, and Stellantis showed their EV lines, and the Dutch solar EV pioneer, Lightyear was all there and leaning forward into green technologies.
Lightyear saw great interest in its first solar EV, the Lightyear 0, which it recently started delivering to customers. Lightyear opened a waitlist for its second solar EV, dubbed Lightyear 2. Their new solar EV will be cheaper (less than $40,000), will have a charge range of around 500 miles, and promises to be more powerful. The company said that it will start producing new solar EV models in 2025.
