Fully Solar Powered Cars Becoming A Reality

Adding solar technology to electric vehicles is an ideal evolution in theory, but for many in the industry, practicality remains an issue. This skepticism hasn’t stopped a Dutch startup from developing Lightyear One, a vehicle that has the ability to be powered by just sunlight. Their revolutionary development earned them the new Climate Change Innovator Award at CES 2018. The new electric car can charge itself hassle-free as it sits in a driveway, and the battery inside holds a range of up to 500 miles. This would give it ample room to hold a significant charge when there’s no sunlight, and it would still feature all the traditional methods of EV charging, if needed.
