Squad Mobility to debut solar-powered buggy at CES 2024

The "Squad" is a compact solar-powered car that charges itself on direct solar energy through an integrated solar panel on the roof.

Squad Mobility will present its Solar Buggy Special Edition at CES 2024 in Las Vegas for the first time in the US. On the Netherlands Tech Square, Squad Mobility will showcase its Solar Buggy at Eureka Park, Venetian Expo, Hall G in Booth 62100. The “Squad” is a compact solar-powered car that charges itself on direct solar energy through an integrated solar panel on the roof, Squad Mobility said. It will be available in the US in 2025 at $6250 (excl. tax) and can be pre-ordered now.

According to Squad Mobility, the vehicle’s solar panel charges up to 13.6 miles extra range on sunny days in the Netherlands and up to 19.2 miles in Las Vegas. The four swappable and portable batteries provide a range of 62 miles excluding solar.

The company said the Solar Buggy is the first special edition for Squad Mobility. The manufacturer’s top priority is to bring the two-person Solar City Car 28 mph L6 / LSV and 43 mph L7 to production. A slightly longer, four-person L7 will follow as well as a cargo version, a complete range of accessories like the golf bag rack and more special editions such as the Solar Buggy.

Squad Mobility has developed its distributed microfactory concept in which the “Squad” will be assembled in factories worldwide in local markets close to customers. This way, Squad Mobility said transportation costs and environmental impact can be minimized through efficient flat-pack supply chain logistics while combining the assembly with a local spare parts storage and hub. Additionally, local supply of components will be sought and increased, the manufacturer said.
