Clean mobility for everyone, everywhere.

Positive impact

We, now more than ever, care about the environment. As part of this shift in focus, governments, companies, and individuals are all increasingly turning towards sustainable energy sources. This is one of the driving forces behind an economy geared towards positive impact.


The need for clean mobility

Mobility is an intrinsic need for human kind. Electric cars are being seen as the next step in clean mobility. But, at present, electric cars have a scaling problem. The electricity grid cannot accommodate the increase in energy consumption and global coverage of charging infrastructure still remains too low for adoption. This is even more true in developing regions of the globe where demand for cars will take off in the upcoming decade.





We have developed a car that can be charged by both regular household powerplugs and the sun. It simply works anywhere, and takes you everywhere. Clean and convenient, not constrained by charging infrastructure, Lightyear One revolutionises the world of mobility.



A light-year of sustainable kilometres

Currently, all cars in the world drive one light-year together, each year. That is 9,460,000,000,000 kilometres. Every year. Powered by fossil fuels. Our goal is to accelerate the adoption of electric cars so that by 2035, one light-year will have been driven electric. To that, we are providing a scalable solution.

Lightyear One


Be among the first to drive further with significantly less energy use per kilometre. Let the sun power your Lightyear. From sunrise to sunset — every single day.
