The compact ATV is more expensive than it seemed at first glance, but the Citroen Ami will still be the cheapest “car” in the UK.
The all-electric Citroen Ami and the Avia Cargo van are now available for ordering exclusively online through the French company’s special digital Ami platform. A compact two-seater electric car with a price of 7,695 pounds becomes the cheapest “car” in the UK.
Since it is technically an ATV and not a car, the owner does not need a full British license to drive it, and the Ami can be driven by holders of full AM motorcycle rights.
The company noted that in the 2 years since the announcement of the new product, it was possible to collect more than 12 thousand pre-orders. UK customers will now be able to move on to the next stage of the Ami purchase process by converting their bookings into bookings. The first deliveries of Amis will begin this summer, and those who have reserved a car will have access to Citroen’s online platform to customize their Amis.
There will be plenty of personalization options available for the Ami, as buyers can choose from three color packages for £400, and the Pop and Vibe configurations get additional customization equipment packages for £8,495 and £8,895, respectively.
The Ami Pop models are equipped with an Orange Color Pack with black trim on the outside, as well as a rear spoiler and door stickers, and the Ami Vibe combines a Grey Color Pack with black roof rails and wheel arches, as well as Contour stickers on the doors. The single-seat Ami Cargo van will go on sale together with the regular model at a price of 7,995 pounds.

British cars will come with a Type 2 EV charging adapter in addition to a three-pin plug, which may partially affect the price compared to the figures first discussed when introducing the car.
Using innovative lightweight body panels, the Ami weighs only 485 kg and has a turning radius of only 7.2 meters. With a length of 2410 mm, there are only two seats in it, and there is no trunk in the passenger model — instead, there is space for standard luggage. There is also no fancy touchscreen, only a holder for the driver’s smartphone, although there is a large glass roof.
