Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)

Charging is possible by using a regular wall plug or a charging station. Public charging is always done through a charging station. How fast the EV can charge depends on the charging station (EVSE) used and the maximum charging capacity of the EV. The table below shows all possible options for charging the Lightyear One. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.

NOTE: Lightyear has not released details about the on-board charger of the One. The information below is based on estimatation of the most likely on-board charger.

Europe

Charging an EV in Europe differs by country. Some European countries primarily use 1-phase connections to the grid, while other countries are almost exclusively using a 3-phase connection. The table below shows all possible ways the Lightyear One can be charged, but some modes of charging might not be widely available in certain countries.

Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)
Charging Point Max. Power Power Time Rate
Wall Plug (2.3 kW) 230V / 1x10A 2.3 kW 30h45m 19 km/h
1-phase 16A (3.7 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW 19h15m 30 km/h
1-phase 32A (7.4 kW) 230V / 1x32A 7.4 kW 9h45m 61 km/h
3-phase 16A (11 kW) 400V / 3x16A 11 kW 6h30m 90 km/h
3-phase 32A (22 kW) 400V / 3x32A 22 kW 3h15m 180 km/h

Fast Charging (10 -> 80%)

Rapid charging enables longer journeys by adding as much range as possible in the shortest amount of time. Charging power will decrease significantly after 80% state-of-charge has been reached. A typical rapid charge therefore rarely exceeds 80% SoC. The rapid charge rate of an EV depends on the charger used and the maximum charging power the EV can handle. The table below shows all details for rapid charging the Lightyear One.

Lightyear has not released details about rapid charging the One. The information below is based on estimated values of the most likely rapid charging capabilities.

  • Max. Power: maximum charging power the vehicle can use
  • Avg. Power: average charging power over a session from 10% to 80%
  • Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%
  • Rate: average charging speed over a session from 10% to 80%

Europe

Combined Charging System (CCS Combo 2)
Charging Point Max. Power Avg. Power Time Rate
CCS (50 kW DC) 50 kW 45 kW 60 min 400 km/h
CCS (100 kW DC) 75 kW † 60 kW † 45 min 540 km/h
CCS (175 kW DC) 75 kW † 60 kW † 45 min 540 km/h

† = Limited by fastcharge capabilities of vehicle

NOTE: Most rapid charges are currently limited to 50 kW. Chargers with more power are expected in the near future.
