Tessie Hartjes is the chief marketing & sales of Lightyear, a tech company on a mission: to create clean mobility for everyone. And with their solar car Lightyear One they are very close to the realization of that mission.
Lightyear One is the first electric vehicle covered in solar panels suitable for long distance (up to 800 kilometers). It's an ultra efficient, light weight and beautifully designed car. Since the launch of the company in 2016, Lightyear has received many awards, grants and support from key investors. They have over 10 patents pending, over 100 early pre-orders and are working towards production at this very moment.
Lightyear on the road
In the beginning of 2021 the first 100 Lightyear One cars should be on the road. 500 more will follow later that year.
Innovating health care
It's not the first time Tessie stood at the cradle of an innovative tech company. Tessie is also the co-founder of Blue Jay Eindhoven. This team created an interactive, autonomous drone which functions indoors and assists in healthcare related environments. This unique project got world wide media attention from Discovery Channel, RTL2 in Germany and many others.
