Lightyear One solar car

I remember similar approaches discussed in the forum a while ago.

So, what do you think?

Sorry, but I usually tend to CLICK OUT of misc. Web sites that put the COOKIEs notice, upon casual arrival.
No offense meant, and I know that's not a firewall action....(I wonder how many Web sites just, oops, put their cookies active, in disregard of consumer laws.  Yeah, oops.  Try gooogl "recent legal actions for Cookies abuses...")
No offense,

I find it hard to believe they've made something light enough to work as advertised, and crash all that well, but am happy to be proven wrong. Chassis shots remind of of some 60s race cars.

You'll still be plugging the thing in several months a year where I'm from. Makes more sense to me to just have the solar on the house.

Incredibly expensive car, so probably not relevant to any of us here.

One nice thing to see is the efficiency. Tesla is so far ahead, and other car makers don't seem to care too much, or let marketing decide what the car aerodynamic performance is like.
Model 3 Cd: 0.23.

No offense,

Then just don't reply. Cookies are a normal thing on websites, block them if you don't like it.
