Citroen Ami microcar confirmed for UK

Citroen has confirmed that its electric Ami city car will launch in the UK next year.

Designed for use in urban areas, the Ami is a two-seater with a top speed of just 28mph, and an electric driving range of 46 miles from a 5.5kWh battery.

UK versions of the Ami will remain left-hand drive – allowing the driver the ‘benefit of exiting the vehicle kerbside when parking at the roadside in city centres’, Citroen noted.

The all-electric Ami is exempt from the London Congestion Charge and Ultra-low Emissions Zone (ULEZ) charges. With London’s ULEZ due to be extended in October 2021, and other cities looking to introduce similar measures, Citroen maintains that Ami is a ‘future-proof’ solution to mobility concerns in many UK cities.

Citroen says there have been 13,000 expressions of interest in the UK for the Ami.
