Ami is inspired by the desire to make urban mobility accessible and easy for everyone – no driving licence required (depending on the country) – with car -sharing via Free2Move or rental options from just 19.99 euros per month. Ami represents an innovative take on the future of urban mobility, which clearly impressed the Top Gear magazine judges.

‘The Disruptor Award’ in BBC Top Gear magazine’s ‘The Electric Awards’ 2020 is the very first award for Ami anywhere in the world. The vehicle impressed the panel of Top Gear magazine judges with its unique and innovative take on the future of electric urban mobility.

The Ami follows on from the Ami One Concept, first shown at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2019. The production-ready Ami is a compact and affordable response to evolving mobility needs in cities and urban centres. It features a 5.5kWh battery, with a range of up to 43 miles, which can be fully charged in just three hours from a standard domestic electric socket. Granted, it only has a top speed of 28 mph, but it is unique in that it can be driven, in some European countries, by anyone from 16 years of age without a driving licence (14 years of age in France), thereby helping a younger generation to easily access electric mobility in urban areas.

The BBC Top Gear magazine judges were also impressed with Ami’s stylish design and modern looks. It

can be purchased entirely online and delivered direct to the customer’s front door. With a low purchase price from 6,000 euros, Ami is also available on a short-term loan basis through car sharing schemes such as Free2Move, or longer-term rental options from just 19.99 euros per month.

“Ami continues a long tradition of Citroën vehicles that have disrupted the market and introduced a whole new way of thinking” said Arnaud Belloni, Citroën’s Global Marketing & Communications Director. “So to win the BBC Top Gear magazine Disruptor Award is great testament to the work we do to innovate, and bringing customers new and exciting mobility solutions. With Ami, we make urban mobility more affordable and accessible, with no licence requirements. With this 100% electric, compact and protective solution we will appeal to a whole new generation of electric vehicle buyers.”
