Citroën has announced that a limited run of 1,000 My Ami Buggy models will go on sale next year. The new limited edition version will be similar to the first edition but with a few surprise features over the current My Ami Buggy. This electric vehicle (EV) sold out all 50 units in just 18 minutes. Further details of the second edition will be released in Spring 2023.
My Ami Buggy is an extension of Ami’s playful character and is at home both in the urban jungle and in more remote locations. Ami 100% ëlectric can already be found across the world, for example, it has played a part in delivering the energy transformation of the island of Halki off the coast of Greece where the police and Coast Guard use the models.
Similarly, seven Ami 100% ëlectric models were added to the fleet of vehicles used by the island of Maddalena’s police and port teams in Italy to promote clean mobility.
A true breakthrough from Citroën, Ami 100% ëlectric is a daring response to the challenges faced in today’s cities and urban environments. It has been a huge success since it first went on sale in 2020 with more than 30,000 sold in nine countries.
Ami 100% ëlectric emits zero emissions in use and has a 5.5kWh battery that recharges in just four hours. With a range of 46 miles (74km) and a top speed of 28mph, Ami 100% ëlectric is a modern solution that delivers on Citroën’s promise to provide affordable and clean mobility solutions for all.
I loved the Ami 100% ëlectric when I tested it. It’s completely practical and a lot of fun to drive. It was like being in a James Bond movie and left a huge smile on my face.
Alongside My Ami Buggy versions, Ami 100% ëlectric is available in a choice of variants; My Ami Colour (Grey, Orange & White), My Ami Pop, My Ami Tonic as well as the commercial My Ami Cargo.
My Ami Cargo is an innovative solution for urban last-mile deliveries. With a payload of up to 140kg, a maximum load capacity of 400 litres and a tight 7.20m turning circle, My Ami Cargo is designed for businesses working in cities and urban areas and is also available only via the online platform.
My Ami Buggy will be available to customers on a first-come, first-served basis with sales expected to open in spring 2023 and deliveries beginning in the summer.
We love that there’s a second run of the Ami Buggy and expect it to sell it out as quickly as the first. With such popularity and being such a cool and affordable beach/summer vehicle, we have to ask the question: Why is this not being offered in a less limited run?
Back in September, Citroën and ubitricity announced a partnership with the launch of the Citroën AMI EV in the UK. The partnership will bring awareness to the transition to electric mobility by cooperating with innovative solution providers to offer a full-service package for drivers, as well as local authorities. Starting in London, the collaboration will help buyers of Citroën’s AMI to recharge at on-street parking locations.
