We could not have a better first customer than Troy Helming, CEO of Pristine Sun, a leader in renewable energy project development. We are thrilled to deliver our first street legal superbike for Troy to use for his daily commute. We are honored to launch our first customer delivery at the Autodesk Gallery. Autodesk and Lightning have built a strong technology collaboration.
