Designed for independence.
The car for independent explorers.
Having started from scratch, Lightyear One is engineered like no other car. This allows you to have a truly convenient and clean journey. Explore the world, independent of the charging infrastructure.
Complete thermal integration.
Efficiently integrating the latest technologies, we capture and re-use any residual heat, so we maintain our critical components at their optimal temperature with minimum energy loss.
Lightyear solar technology.
Lightyear's integrated solar technology greatly reduces the need for grid-charging. The patented double curved solar array achieves 215 Wp/m² and is fully automotive compliant. The solar cells cover a total of 5m².
Why our technology matters.
By enabling electric vehicles to be scalable for everyone, everywhere, we will accelerate the sustainability transition and have a positive impact.
Body And Chassis.
Lightweight body and chassis.
We found the balance of using lighter building materials like aluminium and carbon fiber, while maintaining rigorous safety standards.
With its five square metres of solar panels you can drive for months without charging. Comprising solar cells encased in safety glass, the sturdy solar roof and hood live up to rigorous auto industry regulations.
By following not convention, but the laws of physics, Lightyear One gets the most out of every joule. With a fully charged battery, Lightyear One’s range is 725 km on the WLTP drive cycle.
