Less than two months ago, Lightyear had started production of its Lightyear 0, an electric car that can be used as an electric vehicle. be recharged also using the sun thanks to the presence of solar panels on the bodywork. A car that we had the opportunity to test in Spain when it was still a prototype and which, in the plans, was to be produced in 946 specimens at a starting price of 250 thousand euros (excluding taxes).

The company has now announced that it has decided to stop productionof his first car to concentrate all his resources on the development of the Lightyear 2, a model designed to be mass produced and to be more; accessible of the Lightyear 0 given that, in the plans, it should be put on sale starting from 40 thousand euros.

It is a decision that comes suddenly, given all the more recent announcements by Lightyear, and which obviously raises many doubts about the future of this young company. The Lightyear 2, in fact, will not arrive; before 2025, at least according to the previously communicated original plans. For its development and especially for its production we need a lot of funds that the company will have to pay. find to be able to carry on his project.

Our vision is; offer mobility; clean for everyone, everywhere. We first developed the Lightyear 0, the world's first production solar car. At the same time we developed Lightyear 2, the affordable solar electric vehicle available to a wider audience. ample. To make this a reality, we as a company are overcoming many challenges. We have worked hard over the last few months to address these challenges. To safeguard our vision, we had to decide to redirect our attention and resources completely towards Lightyear 2. it effectively meant that we had to suspend production of the Lightyear 0.

CEO and co-founder Lex Hoefsloot talks about "key investments" in the coming weeks which will allow the Lightyear 2 project to be carried forward. received over 20,000 pre-orders from fleet managers.

Finding the right partners and the necessary funds will be a challenge. so important for the business to try and move forward. Nothing is was said, however, on the few units; of the Lightyear 0 that have been built. Is not serious; It is clear if they have been delivered to customers or if their future is in the future. to become "collection" of a very ambitious project which, however, is not; completed.

All we have to do is wait for news. to understand what it will be; the future of this young company.
