Technology flows through the veins of all people working at Lightyear. On this page, we will give you regular updates on our technology development as we work to realise Lightyear One. You will be able to take a closer look into the development of our core technologies such as in-wheel motors, solar, efficiency, the building of new Research Vehicles and many other related topics.
Our team closely worked together to create glass fibre parts out of moulds to the specific shapes we need. These parts will be used in the wheel housings offering both resistance to stone chipping and the lightness we’re looking for.
Currently, we are in an important phase of our development where we bring together and test our in-house developed technologies. In this article & video, our colleagues Davy & Bart elaborate on reaching a new milestone: the Hardware Integration Test.
Lately we started with the Body-in-White (BiW) of our two new research vehicles. Click on the image for more photos and info.
