Lightyear 0 reinvents the wheel when it comes to energy consumption, range capability and charging.
It’s built like no other electric car, charging on-the-go and gaining up to 70 kilometres of range per day from the sun alone. Our holistic design helps to get the most from every last joule of energy.
With Lightyear 0, the sun is your source. Picture this: you return to your car after two hours. Tapping on your intuitive infotainment system, you see that the sun boosted your range by 20 km while you were away. Nice. Depending on the climate, you could yield between 6,000 to 11,000 kilometres of free, effortless, and clean range every year.
Lightyear 0 is much less dependent on sockets and cables. But when you do plug charge, you can expect an easy ride. Any outlet in the world becomes a charging station. Plugged into a regular home socket, the one you use to power your toaster, you can still charge over 300 km of range overnight.
No more planning routes around charging ports; Lightyear 0 is energised by adventure, just like you. 640L of trunk space with the seats up, and a ground clearance of 183mm makes it ideal for exploring unknown terrain and heading for off-the-beaten-track destinations.
Sustainable design is stitched into every seam of Lightyear 0. The car’s high-quality interior is crafted from plant-based leather, recycled PET bottle fabrics and sustainably restructured rattan palm, breathing new life into a conscious collection of all-natural materials.
As the world's first long-range production-ready solar electric vehicle, Lightyear 0 redefines mobility.
Designed with radical efficiency at its heart, it puts revolutionary technologies into the hands of the visionaries rewriting history with every clean solar kilometre they drive.
The most efficient drivetrain to date with four independently controlled in-wheel motors.
Lightyear's integrated solar technology greatly reduces the need for grid-charging.
Lightyear 0’s design allows it to attain a record-breaking drag coefficient (Cd) of less than 0.19.
A battery pack with a high energy density has a relatively low weight, which contributes to the energy efficiency of the car.
We capture and re-use any residual heat, so we maintain our critical components at their optimal temperature with minimum energy loss.
We found the balance of using lighter building materials like aluminium and carbon fiber, while maintaining rigorous safety standards.
