Lightyear 0, the world’s first production-ready solar car and a guaranteed classic of the future, recently made its UK debut at Goodwood Revival! The three-day vintage motoring festival had a modern mantra: to reduce, reuse and recycle.
Goodwood Revival ranks among the greatest global motoring meetups, celebrating auto heritage over three immersive, action-packed days. With a ‘make do and mend’ mentality, the annual festival champions a less disposable world, where longevity, sustainability, and quality reign supreme.
This year, amid revived treasures and entrancing automotive craftsmanship, attendees enjoyed a bright, cutting-edge twist. In Lightyear 0, visitors glimpsed a new generation of future classics, exploring the first statement car to trigger a solar electric movement.
Since its first iteration in 1998, the world-famous festival has been welcoming up to 150,000 automotive enthusiasts every year and remains the only sporting event of its kind to be staged entirely in a period theme.

Lightyear 0 at Goodwood Revival
With a matching ethos of reduction and reuse, Goodwood Revival felt like the perfect stage to debut Lightyear 0 in the UK. We, too, believe in building for longevity, creating vehicles that carefully consider the lifecycle of each component.
And Lightyear 0 is truly built like no other — not just because of its integrated solar cells. It’s designed to drastically reduce dependence on plug charges, stretching every joule of energy as far as it can go. It’s powered by the sun, yielding up to 70 km (44 mi) a day in sunny climates. It’s carved by the wind, with a record-breaking aerodynamic design and a powertrain that sets new industry standards for energy efficiency.
In Lightyear 0, enthusiastic visitors found a symbol of another dawning era for mobility, and we believe, in years to come, the beacon of change that triggered a clean automotive revolution.
As always, our friendly, expert team were on hand to help navigate the world’s first solar electric car and its unique technologies, answering any questions along the way.
