Lightyear receives €2.5M funding through European Horizon 2020 programme
Europe’s new investment in Lightyear provides additional support to produce their first electric solar car, the Lightyear One, which will be launched in early 2020. Horizon 2020 is an incentive program of the European Commission for SMEs with disruptive ideas and new products. By investing in Lightyear, the European Commission supports Lightyear’s vision of sustainable mobility for all. Due to its high efficiency and integrated solar cells, the car rarely needs to charge, increasing the appeal of electric driving.
