Citroen has unveiled a new iteration of the extremely small electric city car known as the My Ami Buggy. Ten nations will be able to purchase the limited edition EV for slightly over $13,000 (£10,495).
Introducing the electric Citroen My Ami Buggy
The 2.41-meter-long Ami electric car, which was introduced in April 2020 and has a low starting price of about $6K, is the inspiration for the My Ami Buggy. Citroen advertises it as an accessible EV that anyone can use, whether they are 77 or 17 years old.
The off-road-inspired My Ami Buggy design was unveiled by the French manufacturer in December 2021. Citroen unveiled an ultra-limited series production variant in France last year following a resoundingly favourable response to the concept vehicle, with all 50 units selling out in just 18 minutes.
The new model, which will start at $13,029 (£10,495), will only be available to the first 1,000 customers.
The ultra-compact EV has an estimated range of up to 46 miles and a maximum speed of 28 mph, but keep in mind that it is intended for urban use. It is operated by a 5.4 kWh battery and an 8hp motor.
The Buggy features an eye-catching design that stands out. It has a rugged appearance and a mood of adventure thanks to its khaki exterior and black protection components. Gold rims also provide the wheels a wonderful touch.
You’ll also notice that the My Ami Buggy lacks doors or windows, however it does feature waterproof fabric and plastic covers that are tucked within to protect the passengers. The electric vehicle, in contrast, has an open-air design to provide “a true sense of freedom.”
The My Ami Buggy will be made available by Citroen in countries other than the US, including the UK, Italy, France, Greece, Spain, Belgium, Portugal, Luxembourg, Morocco, and Turkey.. On Tuesday, June 20, at 2 PM, the first 40 customers can start shopping online in the UK.
Citroen still sells the 100% electric AMI, which starts at about $10K (£8,095) for individuals who are unable to obtain the special edition model. To far, Citroen claims to have sold more than 35,000 units worldwide.
