Citroen Ami

The cute Citroën Ami 100% electric mobility solution has been honoured in the Marie Claire Sustainability Awards 2022.

Technically a quadricycle, the two-seater is 100% recyclable, while 85% of its battery pack can be recycled and reused.

Priced from £7,695 and launching in the UK this summer, it produces zero emissions and it’s a perfect mode of transport for getting around cities and urban areas.

The Ami has a 5.5kWh battery that can be fully charged in just three hours. All versions feature a 6kW electric motor, enabling a top speed of 27.9mph, with a range of up to 46 miles.

Buyers can also run an Ami for just £19.99 per month on Personal Contract Purchase (PCP), over 24 months (with a customer deposit of just £2,369, plus an optional final payment to purchase the vehicle at the end of the contract).

Citroen has confirmed that its fully electric Ami city car will launch in the UK next year.

More than 12,000 UK customers have already registered their interest in this cute EV which has a range of 46 miles and a top speed of 28mph.

With a length of only 2.41m and an incredibly tight turning circle, the Ami is compact and agile, providing an easy solution for navigating busy streets and fitting into narrow parking spaces.

It has space for a driver, a passenger and one small item of luggage, and in a nostalgic nod the iconic Citroen 2CV, the manual side windows of AMI can be opened by flipping the glass upwards into a fixed raised position.

However, it will remain left-hand drive, though Citroen says that’s a good thing because it will allow for a kerbside exit from the vehicle for the driver when parking. It’s though the Ami will costs around £6,000.
