Company Summary

The Lightning is a high technology GT created by a team of engineers to satisfy the global demand for a premium electric sports car. It gives opinion leaders what they seek in such a car; performance, looks and style and to make their environmental statement, emission free at point of use. We now seek to go into low volume production of the GT and thereafter on a common platform a range of electric vehicles, notably an SUV and large saloon.
