The Lightyear 0 photo voltaic panel lined automotive is not taking place anymore, regardless of information of “production starting” in Finland in late November. One wonders whether or not that really occurred – had been any models really produced or was all of it a lie? And if manufacturing did begin, what occurred between late November and now? One thing did, since as we speak Lightyear has introduced that it is killing the Lightyear 0.
In fact there is a spin on it too – the killing of the preliminary mannequin is seemingly performed with the intention to focus all sources on the much more vaporware-like Lightyear 2. Certain, completely plausible. The €250,000 Lightyear 0, the most aerodynamic “production car” (that phrase is admittedly humorous looking back), from an organization by which Koenigsegg invested, wasn’t viable, even at that insane worth.
And but, the €40,000 Lightyear 2 by some means will likely be. There is a ready record for this one, due to course there’s. It simply opened in early January. The €40,000 worth is up from the preliminary “target” the corporate set for itself in November, which was €30,000.
Once more – what occurred from November to January for such an enormous change? We’ll most likely by no means know, however worth hikes earlier than “launch” are a Lightyear specialty, with the Lightyear 0 going from €150,000 to €250,000 within the span of 5 months! In fact now it is right down to 0 as it is not being made anymore – if it ever really was. So it is actually becoming that title: Lightyear 0.
There was apparently a particular firm dealing with the “production” of the Lightyear 0, Atlas Applied sciences BV, for which Lightyear has now submitted “the request to the court to open suspension of payment proceedings”. That seems like Dutch authorized converse for “it’s going bankrupt and won’t pay its suppliers anymore”. With that in thoughts, we’ll be curious to see what number of suppliers need to work with the opposite two firms related to Lightyear, particularly Atlas Applied sciences Holding BV, which holds the IP rights, and Lightyear Layer BV. These are nonetheless working as regular, for now a minimum of.
