Lightyear One 2021 Overview

What Separates Lightyear One 2021

Being a very much a new brand with a very specific identity it is there was no wonder that the range is all about trying to present decent specs yet a lower price than the competition as of now.

A solid mid level option thanks to its range still and in spite of somewhat average specs and metrics across the board simply due to the size class makes Lightyear One 2021 look decent compared to some other EVs.

Still obviously to see how exactly good it is compared to other EVs on the market and other variants of cheaper tiers, it is crucial to see specific metrics. Based on that the comparison between the Lightyear One 2021 differences with other upcoming variants in the range just as well as other EVs come down to acceleration, the electric range, charging time and additional minor ones looking pretty major nevertheless. Based on a direct comparison to the othe variants in the range as well as other EVs, pretty slow when compared to other EVs and range variants at 9.8 seconds getting from 0 to 6o miles – staying ways intact with the standard on the market by some good measure yet it has a cost disadvantage over it. Fortunately it stays above to what some other EV SUVs deliver it is in the neighbourhood of EPA certified electric range of somewhat mid level acceptable 440 miles. This range makes it a almost top-of-the-line one as it allows for any type of traveling.

Mentioning its charging capabilities this range does deliver a fairly quick result. It is capable of going 0 to 100 in approximately 3.5 hours.

About The One
The Lightyear One Range Pretty much creating themselves and immmediately monopolizing the market of the personal use EV way since the 2012 launch of their ever successful Tesla Model S range there was no doubt that at some point other players on the market will step up. Surprisingly instead it were new players as one of the newer established companies on the market Lightyear was sure to start its own line and became one of the few brands truly trying to compete with the Lightyear One range. Thus similarly to how many big established brands also from Germany like Audi and BMW that decided to branch out its EV production and its ranges to include different car types from CUV hatchbacks to SUVs and sports cars, the Lightyear One range will be centering around the same class being a sports car like mid size SUV. As its performance is average compared to other EV ranges though based on the size this classifies it as a strong mid level option for sure even considering the price. Surely targeting both the newcomers to the EV market based on the car class and also the premium looks fans, the Lightyear One range is meant to be more of a personal use or a small family car more than anything. Still it was the range that inserted and is keeping Lightyear in the EV conversation. Besides that when surely being in the game of comp`eting with the market leader Tesla, it is crucial to compare the Lightyear One range to that brand both in terms of specs and looks. So comparing how technically and technologically, not even mentioning comfort wise did this range get to Tesla it might be not a very close call as it lacks behind Model S it somewhat resembles. With its AWD with 1 to 2 motors depending on the specific variant of the range it is definitely most comparable to Tesla Model S or Tesla Model X as a similar class-performance option. For sure we are not skipping the looks as well - we can say that just like Tesla yet with a less minimalistic and even more of a futuristic and Japanese like design approach, Lightyear One has gone the more of a minimalistic route and made its range look more simplified and simple. Its range has both a somewhat minimalistic futuristic body form as a sedan and a very minimalistic yet stylish interior finsh with some premium options. Surely we all know about the fact that the looks and design are very important for any car range for sure, the specs and performance are truly everything. Based on just judging the Lightyear One range on the merit of it specs and metrics, let's take a look at specs. Depending on the specific variant in the range it starting electric range and acceleration vary, as it starts o to 60 at pretty slow for its size class 9.8 seconds which is not one of the greatest at all yet is average and works as a mid level spec for those who do not care about the speed too much. Kind of average in terms of max speed or acceleration or other show-off features, it is surpising and gaining in range to improve the impression. This tranlsates to when the journey has already begun, it will deliver you as far as the official EPA rated range of up to 440 mi without a single recharge. This range makes it a almost top-of-the-line one as it allows for any type of traveling if it was not for the lack of other features or the high price. It easily can be categotized as somewhar lower priced than a few other similar sized EVs, which might make buyers or people new to the EV world ignore a lack of some things other similar ranges in or close to its size class or other offer at a higher cost. Never forget to check out its multiple top features such as:
  • Premium options for interior
  • High-resolution dashboard
  • High cargo volume for its class
  • Smart Driver-assistance features
which all combined together make for a very satifsfying feeling when inside it on the road.
