The video above highlights “Lightyear One” – a new solar-powered car. It got its name from the amount of travel done by humans in a calendar year. Humans travel 9.5 Trillion kilometers in a calendar year on earth. 9.5 Trillion kilometers is equal to the distance of 1 light year, hence “Lightyear One” is the name of the solar-powered car (powering itself by sunlight, no other fuel or battery charging source) and could be available in the marketplace by next year.
