Lightyear’s mission is to bring clean and affordable mobility to everyone.
We’re doing this by creating a car that charges itself with sunlight. This solution drastically reduces our dependency on the electricity grid and will make the electric car scalable because of it.
Lightyear is a mission-driven company, focussed on impact.
Lightyear is a fast growing company with a balanced team of both seasoned professionals and talented, young, high performing innovators.
Founded by world champion solar car racers, Lightyear’s experience with solar powered cars goes back to 2012.
Lightyear was started two solar-powered family cars, world championships and a Techcrunch Crunchie Award later.
