Meet our Ambassadors

Investing in Lightyear means becoming part of a wider community. Our ambassadors are driven by the Lightyear mission, excited by the business opportunity, and drawn to Lightyear One.

They are the driving force behind our progress and the impact we want to bring to the world.

Peter Arensman

Investor & early customer

Peter is not only is a firm supporter of clean mobility, but he is also putting human mobility to the test, on a 3000 km rowing journey. By battling the Mediterranean waves with 3 teammates, he wants to raise donations for research into the muscle disease HMSN. Lightyear supports Ambassador Peter and his fellow rowers on this fantastic mission. Do you also want to help Peter reach his goal? Find out more about donating on his website.

Jacques van den Broek

CEO of Randstad

"I was struck with the team, a young team and a team with the purpose. I also like the fact that it's Dutch and very innovative. I invested in Lightyear as a private person, as it connects well with my values as a person, but it also connects well with the values of Randstad."

Rob van Gansewinkel

Investor and early customer

"From an experience in solar races, Lightyear made the decision to develop solar cars for the public market. That’s something I really like. For me, that’s fearlessness and pure pioneering."

Mark Vletter

Co-founder Voys

“Lightyear One will cause a radical system change. In essence, Lightyear One is not just a regular car. It's a solar car, but also a solar power station on wheels. That means that you can take the electricity it collects everywhere.”

Bart Jansen

Pharmacist & car lover

“I think its amazing that Lightyear partnered with an Italian design studio to develop and shape the car and to give the right feeling and usability.”


Cas van Arendonk

Co-founder Kirkman Company

“I don’t know what my first trip in Lightyear One will be, but I know what my last one will be. As long as I drive a car, I want to drive my Lightyear One. There will be new models and competitors, but the first car, the one that changed it all, I want to keep driving it until the end.”

Anne-Marie Rakhorst

Sustainability investor

“The first time I met people from Lightyear was at a debate about the energy transition, in which a lot of people were telling each other how hard it was and Lightyear just went ahead and did it.”
