Lightyear is partnering with The Sharing Group to supply 5,000 Lightyear Two vehicles to its car-sharing platform MyWheels, a shared car company in the Netherlands. This high-volume series will be available to the MyWheels fleet as of 2025. In addition, in 2023, the Lightyear One will also be added to the MyWheels platform.
Lightyear One is Lightyear’s first model that will only be produced in a limited quantity. Adding the Lightyear One to the MyWheels car-sharing platform makes this car accessible to the broader public, the company says. The Lightyear One will go into production in late summer 2022, and first customer deliveries will begin by the end of the year. MyWheels is establishing a sharing campaign for loyal members to be able to drive a Lightyear One as early as 2023.
Lightyear Two will be the mass-market model of the manufacturer and will go to market in 2024/2025 with a starting price of 30,000 euros (approx. $32,674).
