Price is often a barrier when it comes to driving an electric vehicle (EV). Now Citroën, who recently announced UK pricing for the Ami 100% ëlectric and My Ami Cargo a few weeks ago, have announced the most affordable way of driving a zero-emissions vehicle. Prices for this small car, which is classed as an ëlectric quadricycle, start from just £19.99 per month.
This £19.99 monthly price offer is on a Personal Contract Purchase (PCP), over 24 months, with a customer deposit of just £2,369. There is also an optional final payment to purchase the vehicle at the end of the contract.
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 with a simple adapter, allowing a full charge to be completed in just three hours from a home Wallbox or a public charging point.
It might not be a high-speed racer or range beater but it’s a fun car to drive and one we loved when testing. Most importantly it’s practical for urban use and more affordable than anything else available. This small electric vehicle could change the way drive around town.
Eurig Druce, Citroën UK managing director said: “Having Ami in the UK is crucial, bringing our ‘Power to the People’ brand positioning to life – emphasising that Citroën offers every kind of electric car for all kinds of people.
“To be able to offer a fun and fabulous all-electric urban transport solution like Ami for just £19.99 per month is something we are really proud of. It is another example of Citroën at its very best, delivering affordable electric mobility for all.”
The Ami 100% ëlectric and My Ami Cargo will be available exclusively online via Citroën’s dedicated Ami digital platform. This allows customers to complete the end-to-end process from the comfort of their own homes.
