Citroën has released a new city electric car that can actually be considered an enclosed scooter.
The new Citroen AMI Electric Vehicle
The new project of the French automaker, called Ami, is equipped with a 5.5 kWh battery, the charge of which is enough to travel no more than 70 km. It charges from any standard 220 volt outlet no more than three hours. Another consequence of the low power is that it can accelerate maximum up to 45 km / h.
Restrictions like this will prevent you from enjoying long journeys or motorway traffic, but Citroën originally designed Ami as a city transport suitable for narrow European streets. Its compact size and low power will allow residents of most EU countries to drive it without a driver’s license from the age of 16.
For those who want to buy Ami but cannot pay right away €6 thousand, the automaker will offer a two-year lease option until the full amount is paid with a monthly payment in €20, but only after an initial payment of €2644.
Before purchasing, a miniature electric car can also be rented for €0.26 per minute.
First deliveries to start in France from June 2020.
