Citroen Ami review – the weirdest EV in the world!

Need help buying your next car? Click the following link and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price – from Mat Watson!

This is the Citroen Ami!

It’s an ultra-compact electric car that you can drive in France from the age of 14! The question is, coming in at a cost of just 6,000 euros, does the Ami have what it takes to worry some of the more established, popular EVs on the market already?

Well given the looks & size of the Ami, it’s no surprise that performance isn’t exactly its strong point. It’s powered by an 8hp electric motor which drives the front wheels only. It can hit a top speed of just over 25mph, and its range is only around 45 miles.

But let’s face it, if you’re just looking for a little electric runaround, surely this is the best value EV you can buy, right?! Well, there’s only one way to find out… Join Mat for our latest in-depth review!

Dangerous vehicle it goes too slow to be safe on car roads people automatically expect cars to go the speed limit not 30kmh under the speed limit🤣

If it's launched here in India, it would sell like hotcakes. Great little pod for city driving.

I'd rather walk. It's faster than this thing, and better.

Ya know, if this car was built in the 1950's it would be the fastest

This is a drivable gadget, not a car. Love the functionality. Remids me of the reason we created cars in the first place.

This would be borderline useless in any larger town that has 40mph roads, not to mention the one week there’s a heatwave in the UK would make this car unusable.

If this could be a bit faster this could be a great option they can increase the price to like 8-10k? Will be sweet spot 6k is too cheap and features are not many

Citroen has a gift for making the ugliest cars.

I honestly think this Ami is a really nice progress and engineering breakthrough for people who understand the limitations of this class of cars. I mean really, how can you criticize performance of a car that is forbidden by law to drive faster than 45 km/h. Take off the limiter and test its real capabilities if you want to do a fair review of engineering properties. BTW taking off or changing speed limits on this class of moped-cars is quite common operation in Finland for people who get their full driving license but still want to keep the old vehicle for urban driving.

Slightly stupid review especially the end recommnedation. This type of vehicle is the future of urban personal transport. I have put a reserve in to buy one already in the UK as an extra vehicle to use in the local area and keep the C3 petrol for longer journeys.

€5500 for some cheep pieces of plastic and metal. One should be imbecile to drive this thing in the city traffic knowing the fact, that it has not any safety systems. 
Forget about this dangerous thing, and use the €5500 buying rather sophisticated cars such as: Alfa Brera or Alfa GT,…

The jaguar was the car we all dreamed of driving and the citroen is the car greta thunberg dreams we should all be driving.

To be fair It is a little bit good i like it tiny car 🚗

Trả lời


I can't help but like it, it makes no apologies for what it is and a lot of the cost savings to keep the cost down are really practical ideas, like the identical front and back panels and only needing to make one version of the door to put on either side.
