Dutch solar-electric car prototype revealed

Dutch electric-vehicle startup Lightyear has unveiled a prototype of its first model – a solar electric car called the 'Lightyear One' with a claimed range of 450 miles.

While it is primarily charged by plugging in like any other electric model, it also incorporates roof-mounted solar panels in order to boost range and cut down on the amount of stationary plug-in charging required.

Lightyear estimates the One would only need to be plugged in 25 times a year if covering 12,000 miles per year in the UK, compared to 54 times a year for a Tesla Model S P100D.
