Citroen back to the US! Do those Americans fit in the Ami?

Come on, officially the Citroën Ami is not a car. It falls in the same category as the Biro: an electric cart with a top speed of 45 km / h. You do not need a driver’s license to drive an Ami or Biro. Especially in Amsterdam you see the small carts everywhere. For example, you used to be allowed to park them on the sidewalk for free, but the municipality has put a stop to that.

Based on Citroën Ami One Concept

The Ami is based on the Ami One Concept from 2019 and was set up by Citroën for the most efficient possible production. Take a good look at the body of the mini-river cyclist: the front and rear are interchangeable and the doors are symmetrical, so that they can be mounted both left and right.

Citroën Ami has a maximum distance of 70 kilometers

Anyone from the age of 16 with a moped license (older Dutch people have this automatically) can drive the Citroën Ami. It can therefore reach a maximum of 45 km / h and has an electric range of about 70 kilometers. If you plug the plug into a regular socket, the Ami will be full again within 3 hours. It is faster on a wallbox.

Used as a shared car via Free2Move

Anyway, he is coming to America. Free2Move posted a photo of the Ami on LinkedIn, with the lyrics ‘From France with Love’ and ‘Coming to Washinton DC’. It will be used as a shared car, where you can rent the cart for a short ride with the Free2Move app. In the US it will take some getting used to, because there they are used to huge SUVs and pickups. The Citroën Ami is only 2.4 meters long.
