Citroën UK has confirmed that its Ami Cargo Electric van will launch in the UK during 2022.
Ami Cargo, designed to allow fleet and business operators to deliver packages and run services in urban areas, will be adapted for the UK market, but will remain left-hand drive.
New Ami Cargo Electric features a 5.5kWh Lithium battery pack, connected to a 6kW electric motor and can be fully charged in three hours.
It is capable of up to 46 miles of range and exempt from current and future Congestion and Ultra-low Emissions Zone (ULEZ) charges.
The vehicle is 2.41m long, 1.39m wide and 1.52m tall, and has a tight turning circle of just 7.20m.
Also, its passenger seat has been replaced by a seven-part polypropylene module that can hold up to 260-litres and 140kg of cargo or goods.
This extends the interior storage already available, giving Ami Cargo a total load capacity of 400-litres.
New Ami Cargo Electric includes a vertical partition between the driver and cargo area that is positioned to provide optimum space behind the wheel, and ensures the driver is always protected when driving.
The vehicle is also fitted with a secondary modular shelf unit capable of holding up to 40kg, which can be converted into a desk when parked. In addition there is a two-way adjustable floor allowing the vehicle to carry larger items.
Eurig Druce, Managing Director of Citroën UK, said, “With more cities across the UK introducing restrictions for conventional vehicles, Ami Cargo Electric will provide businesses and fleet customers with the opportunity to continue their urban and last-mile operations in a practical, sustainable and cost-efficient way.”
The passenger version of the Ami is due to launch in the UK in spring next year.
