Hello! What better chance to introduce our bright and diverse team than World Hello Day? 🌎

To celebrate the many cultures and perspectives that make our company so special, we asked some of our team to tell us, in their native tongue, what they love about working at Lightyear.

Lightyear 0’s design was inspired by the soft, curved shapes found in nature, yet it looks perfectly at home against the hard edges of an urban landscape. A marriage of nature and technology.

Lightyear 0 is built for convenience, and comfort. With a range of >1000 km between plug charges and an interior designed for a relaxed drive every time, long trips become a treat rather than a chore.

Mobility is a human instinct. Even a scientific law!

Marchetti’s Constant states that humans will spend an hour and six minutes per day on the move. And as technological advancements, like the bicycle or the car, increase our travel range, our need to travel increases with it.

Our solar roofs are ready to be shipped out as we’re gearing up for Start of Production in the coming weeks.

We make our own solar panels in our dedicated factory in Venray, the Netherlands, then ship them to @ValmetAutomotiv for production of Lightyear 0 in their facilities.

Lightyear 0 was designed for off-road adventure. Take a drive past grassy fields, delve into the forest, and look out over shimmering lakes.

What wonders of nature will you be visiting?
