Citroën UK has revealed pricing and specification details for the exciting new Ami 100% ëlectric and its light goods variant, My Ami Cargo. These electric vehicles (EVs) are classed as quadricycles that require a full driving licence in the UK and offer an affordable way of transitioning to electric motoring.
We are excited about this launch because we loved test driving the Ami 100% ëlectric and think it could change the way we drive in urban spaces. Plus, it makes electric vehicles accessible to a wider audience.
All versions of Ami feature a 6kW electric motor drive by a 5.5kWh battery. This allows it to reach a top speed of 27.9mph (45kph) and offers a range of over 46 miles (74km).
A charging cable is built into the passenger door frame which attaches to a Type 2 connector with an adaptor. This allows a full charge to be completed in just three hours from a home wallbox or a public charging point.
Ami 100% ëlectric
The passenger version, Ami 100% ëlectric, will be offered in three trim levels, with a choice of three colour packs, with prices starting from £7,695 on the road (OTR). The lead-in ‘Ami’ trim version includes a digital speedometer, LED front and rear lights, a panoramic glass sunroof and a USB charging port.
Customers can enhance their Ami by adding one of three colour packs including orange, blue or grey. These are priced at £400 and are specifically designed to be fitted at home.
These packs include colour-coded wheel trims, colour-coded rear pillar decals, three colour-coded dashboard storage boxes, a colour-coded dashboard bag hook, exterior door capsules, two door storage nets with a colour-coded horizontal band and two black floor mats with colour-coded trim.
Ami 100% ëlectric customers can also choose from two higher trim levels offering even greater levels of customisation including Ami Pop and Ami Vibe. Both Ami Pop and Ami Vibe are supplied with their customisations fitted at the factory and are priced at £8,495 and £8,895 (OTR) respectively.
My Ami Cargo
For businesses carrying out short distance or last-mile deliveries, the all-electric My Ami Cargo is offered in a single specification, priced at £7,995 (OTR). In place of the passenger seat, My Ami Cargo features a modular storage area that can be configured for a range of business needs.
This consists of a modular upper surface (featuring a unique ‘mobile office’ layout), a divider between the driver and cargo areas. Plus, a modular cargo floor with two positions and a lidded box in the rear creating 260-litres of storage space. Coupled with the interior storage already present on board, My Ami Cargo offers a total load capacity of 400-litres.
Eurig Druce, Citroën UK’s managing director, said: “I’m thrilled that we’re able to announce UK pricing and specifications for the Ami 100% ëlectric and My Ami Cargo.
“These exciting new quadricycles showcase the way the Citroën brand brings innovation, electric mobility and clever design to the widest possible range of people, offering customers a radically different take on urban transport.
“What’s really exciting is that we are launching Ami in the UK due to huge demand from the public – it’s a perfect example of our ‘Power to the People’ thinking.”
