The “evolutionary urban mobility solution” – or electric quadricycle to you and me – is available exclusively through Citroen’s online Ami Showroom. Prices start at £7, 695 or from as little as £19. 99 on a PCP finance package.
With just two seats, a 46-mile range plus 28mph top speed, the 2. 4m-long Ami is designed explicitly for use in city settings and Citroen intends for it to be a safer, more practical alternative to scooters and mopeds.
Buyers can choose from three passenger versions – My Ami Colour (available with grey, orange or white highlights), The Ami Pop, My Ami Tonic – plus the single-seat Our Ami Cargo intended for business deliveries.
A basic Ami is also available specifically on a PCP finance deal costing through £19. 99 per month over two years.
All passenger variations of the Ami feature a digital speedometer, LED front plus rear lights, a panoramic glass sunroof, and an USB charging port. Color, Pop and Tonic models get dashboard storage pockets, a smartphone cradle plus connection as well as interior and exterior styling packs. UNITED KINGDOM cars will be left-hand-drive and feature doors hinged at opposite ends from the car.
The particular Ami Valuables has 400 litres of cargo space and a payload associated with 140kg. Instead of the passenger seat it gets a modular 250-litre lidded storage box with adjustable floor height and “mobile office” upper surface.
To mark the start of sales in the UK, Citroen has partnered along with charging provider ubitricity in order to offer the particular first two, 000 UNITED KINGDOM customers 3 months of free charging across ubitricity’s network of a lot more than 5, 400 kerbside charge points. The Ami’s 5. 5kWh battery takes around three hours to fully charge.
Citroen’s UK boss has also hinted that the French firm might bring its surprise hit Ami Buggy in order to the UNITED KINGDOM after selling all 50 of its initial French run within just 18 minutes..
Citroen UK managing director Eurig Druce told the PA news agency: “I would say [there is an urge to bring Ami Buggy to the UK] in small volumes.
“I always have a smile on my face when I drive Ami, plus Ami Buggy goes to that extra level in order to the extent that if we did manage to provide it to the UK it would be in the garage for sure. ”
He added: “It’s a debate now because 50 were sold in under eighteen minutes, which is bonkers, and I think there are opportunities with regard to something in the UK but it will be the battle. ”
The Pushchair features a Khaki colour scheme and 14-inch gold wheels, along with a removable soft-top roof that’s reminiscent of the particular classic Citroen 2CV.
The doors have also been removed plus replaced by hinged metal tubing, and all 50 cars received a special commemorative plaque on the dashboard.
