The Ami is Citroen’s first vehicle dedicated to urban micro-mobility. Inspired by the Ami One concept carpresented at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, the car is approved as a light quadricycle, offers a smooth ride thanks to electric propulsion and is capable of travelling up to 70 kilometres with a single full tank of energy for a maximum speed of 45 kilometres per hour. The 5.5 kWh lithium-ion battery, located under the platform, can be easily recharged with the electric cable provided on board, located in the passenger side door. After connecting the cable, 3 hours are sufficient for a full charge with a common 220 V socket.
The distinguishing feature of Citroën’s identity is a recognisable style. Ami – 100% ëlectric poses revolutionary aspects in terms of size, volume and its unusual graphic approach, which surprises and departs from the ordinary. At the heart of Ami is an ingenious design with a symmetrical design. For example, the large, perfectly identical doors on the right and left, which provide a differentiated opening: antagonistic opening for the driver, for better accessibility on board and greater comfort, traditional opening for the passenger. The 2 fixed semi-opening side windows follow the same principle. The front and rear bumpers, the lower part of the bumper and the lower part of the bodywork are also repeated, front and rear.
“Disruptive projects are always the best projects. These are usually the ones that really drive the automotive world forward, and it is a tradition at Citroën to want to contribute to changing this automotive landscape. The design of Ami is a product design, not an automotive design. A design for which the form must define the function. Ami has been designed from the inside towards the outside. First of all, an interior that gives you a different feeling from what you may know, an interior that we wanted to be spacious despite a very small footprint”, said Pierre Leclercq head of Citroën design..
