    Just saw this brief video review testdriving lightyear 0. Thought some of us may find interesting:

    Most interesting to me is how much power the 1000w solar panel generates. Appear that the most he experienced was ~68% when the car was parking under the sun. At one point during his test drive, the sun was behind the cloud and it dropped to 5-10%.

    Interesting that today I received a Car & Driver article on the Lightyear Zero:

    https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a40396442/lightyear-zero-solar-ev-first-drive/?source=nl

    Supposedly the Zero is just a limited “proof of concept” model, but their proposed Lightyear 2 model will target the Tesla Model Y.

    Very roughly speaking, if the rays from the sun were 45 degrees from perpendicular to solar cells, their output would be cos45 (=0.707) of their output when perpendicular.

    Can you provide link to where LightYear claims it’s a “1000 Watt Solar Array”?
