The car for independent explorers

Having started from scratch, Lightyear One is engineered like no other car. This allows you to have a truly convenient and clean journey. Explore the world, independent of the charging infrastructure.

Effortless energy

With its five square metres of solar panels you can drive for months without charging. Comprising solar cells encased in safety glass, the sturdy solar roof and hood live up to rigorous auto industry regulations.

Exceptional range

By following not convention, but the laws of physics, Lightyear One gets the most out of every joule. With a fully charged battery, Lightyear One's range is 725 km on the WLTP drive cycle.

Drive anywhere

Lightyear One has four independent in-wheel motors providing power when and where it is needed. The motors deliver improved traction control and maximise energy efficiency on all types of surfaces. It is a cruiser, built to go the distance in any environment.
