LightYear Solar One Goes in Production

Solar Team Eindhoven in the Netherlands made good on its promise to bring the world’s first solar car into production. Born from the Australian Solar Challenge, a race for solar cars through the Australian desert, students/engineers from the Technical University of Eindhoven helped maturing the technology to the production stage, realized earlier this month in Helmond, the Netherlands. Initial small volume price tag: 119,000 euro.

For the average Dutch daily range of 34 km and weather conditions, most of the year the car doesn’t need charging from the grid.
