Could your next drive be powered by the sun?: A company seeking to create a solar electric vehicle (EV) has teamed up with a manufacturer to make the car.

A letter of intent was signed by Lightyear with Valmet Automotive to produce its ‘Lightyear One’ solar car.

It believes its car will permit drivers to travel up to 20,000km per year by employing the suns’ power.

The production with the team is set to begin in the summer of 2022.

Lex Hoefsloot, CEO of Lightyear, announced: “2 years ago, we announced our prototype ‘Lightyear One’. We are really excited to have found a production partner with whom we will manufacture this exclusive model.

“Valmet Automotive is a great partner, has a well-established track record & over a decade of experience in EV production.

“We are proud that we will soon realise the actual production of ‘Lightyear One’ with Valmet Automotive.”
