Green light for the cute Citroen Ami

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

More than 12,000 UK customers have already registered their interest in this cute EV which has a range of 46 miles and a top speed of 28mph.

With a length of only 2.41m and an incredibly tight turning circle, the Ami is compact and agile, providing an easy solution for navigating busy streets and fitting into narrow parking spaces.

It has space for a driver, a passenger and one small item of luggage, and in a nostalgic nod the iconic Citroen 2CV, the manual side windows of AMI can be opened by flipping the glass upwards into a fixed raised position.

However, it will remain left-hand drive, though Citroen says that’s a good thing because it will allow for a kerbside exit from the vehicle for the driver when parking. It’s though the Ami will costs around £6,000.
