Manufacture of Lightyear 0 will be done by Valmet Automotive, at their state-of-the-art production facility in Uusikaupunki, Finland. Completing the pre-production vehicle is important because it allows us to test design and make adjustments to the process of full-scale production, ensuring readiness for the Start of Production (SoP) on the assembly line later on in the year. Pasi Rannus, SVP Manufacturing at Valmet Automotive said: “We are immensely proud at Valmet Automotive to have completed the first pre-production Lightyear 0 solar electric vehicle. This is an important step toward the start of customer car production and making an automotive dream come true.”Journey to the start of productionWhen Lightyear was first conceived over six years ago with the mission to bring clean mobility to everyone, everywhere, there was a long road ahead of us. With pre-production running smoothly and Lightyear 0 on the horizon, we feel newly invigorated in our mission to bring clean mobility to everyone, everywhere.
