Citroën Ami

Citroën Ami to cost from £7,695 in UK

The Citroën Ami electric quadricycle will cost from £7,695 in the UK, with the My Ami Cargo ‘light goods variant’ priced at £7,995.

The passenger version – Ami 100% electric – is offered in three trim levels (‘Ami’, ‘Ami Pop’ and ‘Ami Vibe’), with a choice of three Colour Packs.

The ‘Ami’ trim is priced at £7,695 with standard specification including a digital speedometer, LED front and rear lights, a panoramic glass sunroof and a USB charging port.

Customers can add one of three Colour Packs: Orange, Blue or Grey. These are priced at £400 (including VAT) and are specifically designed to be fitted at home. Each pack comes with colour-coded wheel trims, colour-coded rear pillar decals, three colour-coded dashboard storage boxes, a colour-coded dashboard bag hook, exterior door capsules, two door storage nets with a colour-coded horizontal band and two black floor mats with colour-coded trim.

In addition, all Colour Packs add a separation net between the driver and passenger footwells, a smartphone cradle for the dashboard and the DAT@AMI connection box that allows customers to consult their Ami’s charge status, and more, from the MyCitroën mobile app.

Ami 100% ëlectric customers can also choose from two higher trim levels offering greater levels of customisation: ‘Ami Pop’ and ‘Ami Vibe’.

‘Ami Pop’ combines the Orange Colour Pack with black trim on the Ami’s front, lower front and rear bumpers, and around the rear lights. ‘Ami Pop’ also features a black rear spoiler and orange decals surrounding the door capsules featuring a number ‘2’ design.

Complementing the Grey Colour Pack, ‘Ami Vibe’ features a black finish to the top of the front bumper, front and rear bumper bases, and rear light surrounds, and adds two decorative black roof rails, black wheel arches and ‘Contours’ decals on the doors and front wings.

Both ‘Ami Pop’ and ‘Ami Vibe’ are supplied with their customisations fitted at the factory, and are priced at £8,495 and £8,895.

For businesses carrying out short distance or last-mile deliveries, the My Ami Cargo is offered in a single specification, priced at £7,995. 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.

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 World Motorcycle Test Cycle (WMTC) 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.

UK versions of Ami remain left-hand drive – allowing the driver to exit the vehicle kerbside when parking at the roadside.

A full ‘Category AM’ driving licence is the minimum requirement to drive the Ami in the UK. The AM category applies to mopeds rather than motorbikes, allowing a licence holder to drive two-wheeled or three-wheeled vehicles with a maximum speed of 28mph.

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.
