Citroën UK has revealed pricing and specification details for its new Ami 100% ëlectric quadricycle and its light goods variant, My Ami Cargo.
Significantly, My Ami can be driven by 16-year-olds with a Category AM driving licence – which covers speed-restricted (28mph) mopeds and quadricycles and certain four-wheel vehicles.
Announced last year, so far 2,000 people have paid a £250 deposit for the passenger version, despite pricing not being announced.
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, 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.
UK versions of Ami remain left-hand drive – allowing the driver to exit the vehicle kerbside when parking at the roadside.
The Ami is 100% ëlectric and My Ami Cargo has a range of up to 46 miles (WMTC) and can be re-charged in just three hours.
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.”
All versions of Ami feature a 6kW electric motor, allowing the new model to reach a top speed of 27.9mph, and a 5.5kWh battery that gives it a range of over 46 miles (under WMTC, World Motorcycle Test Cycle, testing). A charging cable is built into the passenger door frame, which attaches – using a simple adapter (supplied with both Ami 100% ëlectric and My Ami Cargo) – to a Type 2 connector, allowing a full charge to be completed in just three hours from a home Wallbox or a public charging point.
Ami 100% ëlectric and My Ami Cargo will be sold exclusively online, with customers placing their orders through a dedicated Citroën Ami digital platform.
An in-house ‘Ami Expert’ team will be on hand throughout the purchase journey and will shortly be reaching out to the over 2,000 customers who have already reserved an Ami to convert their reservations into orders. During the online checkout process, customers will be offered either home delivery for a small fee (geographical restrictions apply), or collection from their nearest approved Ami retailer.
Until further notice, new customers wanting to secure their very own Citroën Ami are invited to deposit a £250 refundable reservation fee via this link
