Lightyear One is an ultra-efficient electric car that can charge via beautiful constructed solar cells embedded in the design of the car. Founded by 5 students from TU/e, Lightyear has grown into a company with 150 high-tech employees working every day to get the first commercial family-car fuelled by solar energy on the road within 2 years. Letting nature guide us in the design principles of the car we created a combination of aerodynamics, light-weight, solar panels and in-wheel motors that provide the Lightyear One with a radius of 725km.
