World’s First Solar Car: As the price of petrol-diesel and carbon emissions has skyrocketed, so has the desire for electric vehicles. As a result, the market for electric cars (EVs) is expanding fast not just in industrialized nations but also in emerging countries such as India.

However, due to the lack of a charging station network, electric cars (EV charging) are not achieving the same level of success as fuel-powered vehicles. When it comes to special India, where the majority of the population lives in rural, the charging point is located far away. Because charging stations (EV Charging Infrastructure) are still being installed in cities.

Why are electric vehicles not as popular as Fuel vehicles?

Assume that even if a charging network is built, the problem will be solved. The reason for this is that it just takes 2 to 3 minutes to fill a gasoline car's tank, but an EV vehicle needs 4 to 6 hours to charge.

Even after this, the problem will be that you will only have a restricted range even when fully charged. That is, what about the issue of charging again after traveling that distance? You will have to wait many hours to charge the car again.

However, a startup business has devised a solution to the entire situation. The firm has created such a car, which will be able to drive for 7 months once completely charged.

In hot areas, it may run for up to seven months on a single charge

The business has included a 1.05 kWh solar charger in this vehicle, which can provide a range of 10 kilometers on one hour of sun charging every day. On the other hand, on a full charge, this automobile can travel up to 70 kilometers. This automobile has four motors that can generate 174 horsepower and 1720 Newton-meters of torque. The business also claims that this vehicle can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in under 10 seconds.

This type of vehicle is appropriate for India

Lightyear Zero is the name given by the corporation to this vehicle. It is currently referred to as the world's first solar automobile. The reason for this is that it can gallop by absorbing solar energy. According to the firm, this automobile can be driven for seven months on a single charge in locations with intense sunlight.

In such a case, India is thought to be a good fit for such vehicles. The manufacturer claims that this automobile can operate for two months on a single charge, even in places with little sunshine, such as the Netherlands.

If you run 35 kilometers each day, it will last 7 days

The business claims that it can run for seven days if you drive up to 35 kilometers every day. The company requires that you park this automobile in an open area with plenty of sunshine.

To collect energy from the sun, the business mounted a 54 sq ft double-curved solar array on the car's roof. If there is enough sunshine, it will be able to go 70 kilometers on a single 20-minute charge.

On a full charge, it can reach 625 km/h and has a peak speed of 110 km/h

Once fully charged, this car will be able to run for 625 km on only a battery. The company has also committed that the Lightyear Zero will be capable of delivering a top speed of 110 kmph on the highway. If all the above claims of the company prove to be true then there is no doubt that this car will be the most energy-efficient electric car.

The first deliveries will take place in November 2022

Lightyear's cars will be manufactured in Finland and will be produced by Valmet Automotive.

The company hopes that this electric car will prove to be a milestone in its segment. It is being told that the company is going to start the production of the car this year and deliveries will start from November 2022.

This solar car was designed in areas where the sun's heat was the least

Lightyear company was started in 2016 by only 5 people together. The special thing is that this solar car is made in a country where the sun's heat is the least. (electric vehicle startup) ie in the Netherlands. However, now the company has grown so much that 500 people are working together with it.

The company said that it will produce only 949 units in the first lot. According to the news, the Lightyear company's cars will be ready in Finland and will be produced by Valmet Automotive Company.
