Citroën has announced that that its Ami electric city vehicle will launch in the UK in the spring of 2022.
The car will be adapted for the UK market, but will remain left-hand drive, which will allow for a kerbside exit from the vehicle for the driver when parking at the roadside in a city centre.
For anyone driving the Ami here, a full UK driving licence is required as with a traditional passenger car.
The Ami has a 5.5kWh battery that recharges in just three hours and has a range of 46 miles as well as a top speed of 28mph.
With a length of only 2.41m and a tight turning circle, Ami is designed to smoothly navigate busy streets and fit into narrow parking spaces.
It has space for the driver, a passenger and one small item of luggage, with the heated interior bathed in light thanks to the model’s panoramic glass sunroof.
By 2025, Citroën will offer an electrified variant across its entire model line-up and models already in UK showrooms include the ë-C4 hatchback and ë-SpaceTourer MPV, plus the C5 Aircross SUV Hybrid.
Eurig Druce, Managing Director of Citroën UK, said: “With cities and urban areas introducing stricter limits for vehicles, and people demanding new mobility solutions, Ami shows once again how Citroën is adapting to meet the demands of the times.
“Citroën Ami is a new all-electric mobility solution for the UK that’s totally unique – fun, exciting and accessible to all.
“After thousands of UK buyers have already registered their interest in Citroën Ami, we are very excited to confirm that the Ami will arrive in the country in spring 2022.”
