Lightyear relies on Solar Electric Auto Rod on suppliers from Poland-lightyear

At the end of 2021, the first car of the Dutch start-ups Lightyear should be delivered to one of the 125 customers, which so far against a prepayment of 150.000 Euro have reserved a Lightyear One. Now it seems to be 2022. This is possible, since you have found a suitable production partner with Valmet Automotive. But with a partner it does not stay. With Inalfa Roof Systems, another important partner is at the start.

Lightyear has decided to use a new location in Venray in the Dutch Province of Limburg, which is listening to Inalfa Roof Systems. The company will relocate part of its production to Poland and leave the equipment suitable for Lightyear. As the world’s second largest provider of sliding and panoramic roofs for vehicles, Inalfa already has the required test facilities and highly qualified personnel for the automotive industry.

“Our double-curved solar roofs are unique in the market. They are the result of years of hard work, in which we patented technologies and production processes. With all this internal knowledge, the next logical step was to develop our characteristic solar roofs themselves. This technology is certified for automotive standards and has been specially developed for series production, “says Dutch companies in his associated press release.

We also remember that the start-up has made appropriate progress with its E-vehicle. Because the solar electric car start-up Lightyear has brought its latest validation prototype to a test track in Germany and achieved a state-of-the-art milestone in its history: the solar-e-car Lightyear One has covered a lot 710 kilometers with a single battery charge. This marks the highest range, which has ever reached an electric car with a 60 kWh battery. The Lightyear One per 100 kilometers has converted only 8.45 kilowatt hours of electricity.

  1. But now under us: Who pays over 100k for a car with 60 kWh battery? And that from a no-name company with uncertain quality, uncertain service network and uncertain continued existence. Especially since you have as alternative German premium vehicles.

    I did not understand the concept. What is the car? For the city? There is an e-up for a tenth of the price of the Lightyear more efficient and finds more a parking space. For the long distance? Then it would be better if the car could at least 130 km / h, if not in Germany at 160 km / h, long distances with a load could cover – even in winter in cold and darkness. Like the EQs, which is aerodynamically also very good, but instead of 60 kWh for the same money offers a 108 kWh battery.

    And what is the solar nonsense?? It is much better to have well-aligned stationary cells on their own roof and thus to load the car instead of driving a fraction area under semi-optimal conditions through the world. Or believes the manufacturer that people who spend 150k do not have their own wallbox for a car, but a hill with rotatable footprint for the car to align it optimally after the sun?
