Citroën announces UK launch of zero-emissions micro car

The 100% electric AMI emits zero-emissions in use and has a 5.5kWh battery that recharges in just three hours. With a range of 46 miles and a top speed of 28mph, the vehicle will be adapted for the UK market, but will remain left-hand drive to allow for a kerbside exit from the vehicle for the driver.

With a length of only 2.41m and an incredibly tight turning circle, the Citroën AMI has been designed specifically for the urban environment to navigate busy streets and fit into narrow parking spaces. The new EV has space for the driver, a passenger and one small item of luggage.

AMI’s zero-emission credentials ensure it is exempt from Congestion and Ultra-low Emissions Zone (ULEZ) charges. With London’s ULEZ due to be extended in October 2021, and other cities looking to introduce similar measures, AMI is a ‘future-proof’ solution to mobility concerns in many UK cities.

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.”

Citroën AMI is the latest vehicle available to UK drivers within Citroën’s electrified vehicle range. Models already in UK showrooms include the all-electric New ë-C4 hatchback and ë-SpaceTourer MPV, plus C5 Aircross SUV Hybrid. By 2025, Citroën will offer an electrified variant across its entire model line-up.
