Drive electric, effortless, anywhere
The Lightyear Mission
Present — Solution — Future
We love electric cars
But, at present, electric cars have a scaling problem. Only 3% of the world’s population has access to a public charging spot within 100 km and is therefore dependent on third parties to build the infrastructure for them to be able to use an electric car.
“Only 3% of the world population lives within 100 km of a publicly accessible charging station.”
Only within the orange colored areas you will find a charging station within 100km.
The electric car that works anywhere
Lightyear’s solution is straightforward. What if cars can be charged by what is already available almost everywhere in the world? Regular, household powerplugs and the sun. Even in countries like India, over 80% of the people already have access to both these.
A car that can charge anywhere.
A Lightyear of sustainable & scalable transportation
Currently, all cars of the world combined drive one light year, every year. That is 9.500.000.000.000 km. Every year. Powered by fossil fuels. Our goal is to accelerate the adoption of electric cars so that by 2030, one light year will have been driven electric. To that, we are providing a scalable solution.
