Lightyear 0 electric car has already grabbed many eyeballs around the world with its design and the technology on board. The Lightyear 0 could actually run up to seven months without any charge to the battery in countries where sunlight is strong, believes the automaker. While this is the best-case scenario, Lightyear believes the EV can actually run up to two months even in the Netherlands. This range is considered with an estimated average daily commuting of 35 km. Also, for this, the owners have to park their vehicles outdoors so that the solar panels on board the EV can draw energy from sunlight.

Lightyear 0 is claimed to come with a solar yield of up to 11,000 km per year. This is possible thanks to the 54 square feet of patented double-curved solar arrays, which allow the EV to draw energy from the sun anytime. The EV manufacturer has claimed that the Lightyear 0 can even run up to 70 km using its solar-sourced energy.
