Ahead of Ami’s UK launch, Citroën has revealed the latest version of its all-electric urban mobility solution, ‘Ami Tonic’. Featuring a new khaki and yellow colour scheme along with new external features, Ami Tonic further highlights the design and personalisation options available on Ami 100% ëlectric.
We loved test driving the Ami 100% ëlectric and think it could change the way we drive in urban spaces. Plus, being so affordable the Ami makes electric vehicles accessible to a wider audience. It’s currently the most affordable electric vehicle (EV) available in the UK.
Like other versions, the Ami Tonic features a 100 percent electric powertrain that is driven by a 5.5kWh battery. It can be fully charged in just three hours and all versions feature a 6kW electric motor.
This allows Citroën’s Ami models to reach a top speed of 28mph (45kph), with a range of up to 46 miles (74km). While this might not seem huge, it’s ideal for those who only drive short journeys.
Citroën’s Ami Tonic model features new headlamp bezels, inspired by sunglasses, and comes with a new khaki and yellow colour scheme with bespoke wheel trims as well as decorative roof rails.
In keeping with the fun spirit of Ami 100% ëlectric, Ami Tonic features “+” and “-“ interior stickers on the A-pillars to highlight its 100 percent electric nature. The yellow accents are mirrored inside, with the door pulls, bag hook and the two front panel recesses also finished in vibrant yellow.
These contrast with khaki accents on the dashboard storage bins and in the door net surround. Yellow directional arrows are used in a fun way to guide passengers on how to use features such as the door handles and windows.
Mathieu Wandon, Citroën Head of Graphic Design, said: “The Citroën Design team wanted to bring a touch of freshness and vitality to this new version. The combination of yellow and khaki, combined with clever technical features gives Ami Tonic a playful edge, making it a toy for grown-ups aged 16 and up.”
Ami Tonic interior is equipped as standard with accessories to support day-to-day use such as a smartphone cradle, three storage bins, door nets, a central separation net, a bag hook, floor mats and the DAT@AMI dongle used to connect Ami with a smartphone via the My Citroën App.
Ami Tonic expands the existing Ami 100% ëlectric range, which has already sold over 23,500 units globally with more than 2,000 pre-orders in the UK ahead of launch.
Ami Tonic replaces Ami Vibe in the Ami 100% ëlectric range, though all existing pre-orders of Ami Vibe will be fulfilled. Citroën also offers a light goods commercial variant, My Ami Cargo, which is ideal for urban delivery use.
Through Citroën UK’s ‘Fair Pricing’ policy, My Ami Tonic is priced from £8,695 On-The-Road MRRP and is available to order now.
