All About Light year 0 Solar-Powered Electric Vehicle

After six years of research and development, the Netherlands-based Light year has finally unveiled the 0 (zero); world’s first production-ready solar-powered electric vehicle

Netherlands-based electric vehicle startup named Light year recently unveiled 0, the world’s first production-ready solar-powered electric vehicle. On 9 June 2022, the company officially unveiled the car via an online global premiere. As per the company, it took them six years to turn the car into a production-ready model.

What is the importance of this article?

While the world is running towards a future where electric vehicles require electric charges, Light year's 0 is a breath of fresh air because one can drive the car for hours and weeks without connecting it to an electric socket. In our book of thoughts, the 0 is the purest form of EV we have ever come across because it is truly in sync with the ideology of a sustainable future.

Armed with solar panels

The Light year  0 is armed with solar panels on the roof and the bonnet that allows the vehicle to add a driving range of 70 kilometers every single day. In short, if an individual drives 30-35 kilometers  (one way) every day, that individual will not have to charge the vehicle via an electric charger.

Furthermore, to cover a distance of 1,000 kilometers , a user will only have to charge the vehicle twice because an hour of fast charging adds a driving range of around 520 kilometers .

All about sustainability 

As mentioned in the second paragraph, the Light-year 0 represents the ideology of sustainability and, therefore, the cabin of the 0 features leather upholstery made from plants along with dashboards and other parts made from recycled plastic bottles and wood trims.

In terms of modern-day features, the interior is equipped with a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment display coupled with Android Auto and Apple Car Play, a side and rear camera system with enough space for five adults.


The Light-year 0 is equipped with a battery pack of 60 kWh with a WALT  battery range of 625 kilometer and a highway range of 560 kilometers when the vehicle is driven continuously at a speed of 110 kilometers  per hour.

Moving on to performance figures, the 0 has a power output of 170 PS along with a top speed of 160 kilometers per hour. Last but not the least, the vehicle can also hit the 100 kilometers per hour mark from a standstill in 10 seconds.
