Drive months without charging. Clean and convenient.


Clean mobility for everyone,


Lightyear One
Designed for independence

Lightyear One is a long-range solar electric vehicle (725km WLTP) designed to be grid-independent. With our unique vehicle architecture and groundbreaking technology, Lightyear One is two to three times more energy efficient (83 Wh/km) than the electric vehicles currently on the market. This results in Lightyear One having the lowest emissions, lowest charging frequency and 7,000km to 20,000km of free, clean solar range every year.

Our focus on
positive impact

We are a mission-driven company, focused on creating positive change for people and planet. We believe that growth, enabled by the right technology, is possible for everyone without harming our planet. We are developing an off the grid, clean and convenient mobility solution to encourage you to move around, free from impact.
