The Lightning Car Company is a British sports car developer, based in Fulham and Peterborough, focused on the development and production of high performance electric sports cars.
The firm's first product, the eponymous Lightning GT, was unveiled in 2008. It is based on an extant internal-combustion vehicle from Ronart Cars. It incorporates quick-charging lithium-titanate batteries from Altairnano into a body made from Superform aluminium. The Lightning GT employs rear wheel drive from two synchronous motors to accelerate to 60 miles per hour (97 km/h) in less than 5 seconds. It has an expected usable range of 150 miles (240 km) on a single battery charge that can be increased to 225 miles (360km) with the extender battery pack option.
