In 2020, with more than 100 years of history and non-conformist, iconic vehicles in its portfolio, Citroen intends to open up urban mobility to all with Ami – 100% electric.
Citroen’s DNA is about innovation, with bold, unexpected solutions in terms of products and services, inspired by the greatest number of people. A direct descendant of AMI ONE Concept, which was introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2019 – generating a great amount of interest – the Ami project has become a reality in under a year.
Ami is a practical response to new mobility expectations for short journeys: easier access to city centres, micro-mobility for everyone, a real alternative to scooters, bicycles, mopeds, or even public transport. This solution comes at a reasonable cost too, with new modes of consumption geared towards digital, and more.
The Citroen Ami is classed as a quadricycle, like the Renault Twizy, which means it can be accessible without a driving licence from 14 years of age in France and 16 years on average in most European countries.
Perfectly suited to an urban life that is constantly on the go and in line with developments in our society, Ami is designing a new type of mobility that specifically responds to the urban problems of today and tomorrow. Everything has been thought through to enhance driving pleasure and make drivers’ daily lives easier. Thanks to its 100% electric driving mode, Ami allows access to all city centre areas, including the low emission zones, and delivers limited running costs.
The Citroen Ami – 100% electric, which benefits from a smooth clutch-less ride and instant acceleration (torque immediately available thanks to electric power), is capable of speeds of up to 28mph (45km/h). A silent model, thanks to its 100% electric technology, Ami is easy to live with for its users.
Ideal for multiple short trips in the city, whether it be going to a meeting, going to work, running an errand or going out for the evening, Ami has a range of up to 43 miles (70 kilometres). A distance far greater than the average travelled by people living in urban areas, as well as those on the outskirts.
Its 5.5 kWh lithium-ion battery, housed flat under the floor, can be easily recharged via the on-board electric cable located in the passenger-side doorway. Once the cable is plugged in, three hours are enough for a full charge on a conventional 220 V socket. The use of Ami is as simple as any everyday electric object. Ami – 100% electric can also be recharged at a public terminal or Wall Box using a suitable cable.
Firmly planted on its specially designed 14-inch wheels, located at all four corners for easy handling, Ami is 2.41m long, 1.39m wide and 1.52m high. It promises everyday agility, as well as easy parking, thanks to its ideal turning diameter (7.20m).
Citroen Ami is accessible to all: no licence required (depending on the country), with affordable “à la carte” offers adapted to every need, from car-sharing via Free2Move or longer-term rental from €19.99 per month.
Rental requires an initial payment €2,644 and ecological bonus of €900. To buy, the Citroen Ami you’ll have to spend €6,000, including ecological bonus of €900 deducted in France.
