Ligier is entering the market for electric vehicles without a license to compete with the Citroën Ami, a real hit. Find out everything we already know about the new Ligier Myli.
A few weeks ago, the manufacturer Ligier announced the arrival of a new 100% electric license-free car via a first teaser. This is revealed a little more today, with a more complete technical sheet. For the style, we will have to wait a little longer, on the other hand…
The license-free car specialist is going electric with a first model called Myli. It is intended mainly for young people, since it is accessible from the age of 14 thanks to the AM license (formerly BSR). This electric chip intends to take its revenge on the Citroën Ami, the electric quadricycle that is a hit with high school students.
Three battery capacities
The Ligier Myli is homologated as a light quadricycle like the Ami, which means that it cannot exceed 45 km/h. The electric motor is supplied by Valeo, while the batteries are from the French brand E4V. The vehicles are assembled in France, at the Boufféré site in Vendée. The weight is contained with 425 kg. The small electric is entitled to three versions, with several battery capacities: 4.14 kWh, 8.28 kWh or 12.42 kWh. Enough to offer between 50 and 130 km depending on the battery chosen. For recharging, Ligier announces 2h30, without specifying whether it is a complete recharging starting from 0 or not.
In terms of looks, the Ligier Myli remains lurking in the shadows for the moment. It seems to be entitled to LED headlights and a closed grille on which is affixed the logo with two flags of Ligier. The charging socket could also be placed behind this badge. The manufacturer specifies that the car can be equipped with numerous equipment (standard or optional depending on the finish) such as a 10 ” touch pad with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, heated driver’s seat, air conditioning or even power steering.
The Myli will be offered in four finishes: Good, Ideal, Epic or Rebel. The entry ticket is set at €12,499, and the price rises to €18,799 in the highest finish. That’s way more than the Ami, which starts at €7,790. Note that the model is entitled to an ecological bonus of €900 in 2022, to be deducted from the purchase price. The without electric license is offered in the Ligier dealership network or directly online. The official marketing will take place in the spring of 2023.
