The Lightyear Mission

Solar powered electric cars have a big advantage over normal electric cars. The reason we are not already driving electric everywhere is a scaling problem. The lack of well-distributed charging stations makes for a difficult hurdle when introducing electric cars. Since solar cars do not need this charging infrastructure that chicken and egg problem will be overcome and roll-out will be much smoother.
