Due to unprecedented customer demand, Citroën is pleased to announce that Ami and Ami Cargo are coming to the UK.. Since making its debut in 2020, Citroën AMI has been turning heads around the world – not least here in the UK. The zero-emission Ami will officially launch here in the spring of 2022, and Ami Cargo later on in 2022. Full details and specifications, including prices, will be communicated closer to the on-sale date.
We do expect demand to outstrip supply in 2022, so to ensure you are at the front of the queue, reserve your own AMI today with a fully refundable £250 reservation fee using the link below.
New Citroën Ami 100% ëlectric is daring response to the challenges faced in today’s cities and urban environments. As a 100% electric vehicle, the Ami emits zero emissions and has a 5.5kWh battery that recharges in just three hours from a standard electric socket.
With a range of 43 miles and a top speed of 28mph, the Ami is a modern solution for modern mobility needs, like nipping around cities or popping to your local supermarket with zero fuss. Ami is the mobility solution for today, and tomorrow.
Taking inspiration from 2CV and AMI ONE CONCEPT, Ami is the breakthrough response of an innovative Brand that is truly inspired by its customers. A Brand attuned to new consumer needs, the challenges of urban travel and increased awareness of the environment.
Driving Ami around the city couldn’t be easier thanks to its ultra-compact length of just 2.41m and super-tight turning circle of 7.2m – tighter than a London taxi! Even with Ami’s ultra-compact size, it still features a ride height that enables you to sit at the same height as other drivers on the road.
Ami has also been designed from the ground up to as eco-friendly as possible, so the designers have ensured that every vehicle part on the Ami is 100% recyclable apart from the battery which is 85% recyclable.
Not only is Ami popular with the UK public, it has also impressed industry experts having won ‘Microcar of the Year’ at the GQ Awards 2021, ‘Technology Award’ in the Auto Express New Car Awards 2021 and WhichEV Awards 2021.
Hot off the heels of the announcement that Citroën Ami will come to the UK in spring 2022, Citroën UK is pleased to confirm that the commercial version – Ami Cargo Electric – will also launch in the UK during 2022.
New Ami Cargo Electric is a practical mobility solution for delivery drivers and business operators in urban areas, with a payload of up to 140kg and a maximum load capacity of 400-litres. Ami Cargo addresses future urban mobility needs, and like Citroën Ami, boasts a 100%-electric range of up to 46 miles.
Businesses across the UK can now secure their very own Ami Cargo Electric with a £250 refundable reservation fee using the link below.
Ami Cargo will be adapted for the UK market, but will remain left-hand drive. The extremely compact Ami Cargo is designed to allow fleet and business operators to deliver packages and run services in urban areas. New Ami Cargo Electric features a 5.5kWh Lithium battery pack, connected to a 6kW electric motor for 100% emissions-free driving. The vehicle can be fully charged in just three hours and is capable of up to 46 miles of range. With zero CO2 emissions in use, Ami Cargo is exempt from current and future Congestion and Ultra-low Emissions Zone (ULEZ) charges.
The interior has been re-designed for even greater practicality. The passenger seat found in Ami has been replaced by a seven-part polypropylene module that can hold up to 260-litres and 140kg of cargo or goods. This extends the interior storage already available, giving Ami Cargo a total load capacity of 400-litres.

We are excited to get all future Ami owners out driving them as soon as possible
WILL I HAVE TO PAY THE CONGESTION CHARGE AND ULTRA LOW EMISSION ZONE CHARGE WHEN ENTERING CITIES LIKE LONDON?
No, as Ami is 100% electric it is exempt from the Congestion Charge and ULEZ
CAN I APPLY A VEHICLE WRAP TO THE AMI?
Yes, this is possible. We would recommend using a thinner wrap to ensure the wrap makes a good connection to the unpainted plastic body panels
WILL I BE ABLE TO ORDER AMI POP AND AMI VIBE EDITIONS?
We are currently finalising the UK Ami range. We hope to include both Ami POP and Ami VIBE editions. Check back for more details in the coming months
IS HOME DELIVERY AN OPTION OR WILL I HAVE TO COLLECT FROM A CITROËN RETAILER?
We are still working through these details but we anticipate you will have the choice of delivery to either your home address or collect from a participating retailer
WHAT WARRANTY WILL BE AVAILABLE ON THE AMI?
We are still finalising these details before Ami officially goes on sale. We will communicate these details as soon as we can
WHAT TYPE OF CHARGER WILL AMI FEATURE?
Citroën Ami will come with a Type 2 adapter, ideal for the UK's charging network and home Wall Box chargers
DO YOU NEED TO LEAVE THE DOOR OPEN WHEN CHARGING?
No, the Ami features a recess section for the cable to sit when charging
WHICH ROADS CAN YOU NOT DRIVE AMI ON?
As a quadricycle, Ami is not permitted to drive on motorways. Ami is designed for an inner-city environment. Fast roads are not made for Ami! We would recommend sticking to 20 and 30 mph roads where Ami is ideal
I LIVE IN A HILLY AREA, HOW DOES AMI PERFORM ON STEEP HILLS?
Ami performs fine on the majority of hills, although you will see its top speed reduced on the steepest of hills. We would recommend a test drive to ensure you are happy before placing an order (which will supersede your reservation fee)
DOES IT ROLL BACK ON A HILL?
Yes, Ami will roll back on any gradient when releasing the brake pedal or parking brake so please take care when driving
DOES IT CREEP LIKE AN AUTOMATIC CAR?
No, Ami does not creep forward like some automatic gearboxes
I AM OVER 6FT TALL - WILL I FIT IN THE AMI?
Yes, Ami is surprisingly spacious inside and can accommodate drivers of up to 6 ft. 6 in comfortably
DO YOU HAVE PLANS TO INCREASE AMI'S TOP SPEED OF 28 MPH?
Ami is certified as a quadricycle. It is limited to 28 mph and there are no plans to increase its top speed
WHY LEFT-HAND DRIVE?
Ami’s compact size means there isn't much difference between where the driver and passenger sit in terms of road positioning. Its left-hand drive configuration also means a safe kerbside exit for the driver
CAN YOU TOW AMI?
We are still awaiting final technical details for UK Amis. Ami, just like all electric vehicles should be towed with only the rear wheels on the ground. You must not tow with all four wheels on the road, as this will likely damage the electric motor. Once we have full details, we will update this section of the FAQs
WHAT IS THE WEIGHT LIMIT FOR PASSENGERS AND LUGGAGE?
In addition to the driver, the maximum additional weight allowed is 140 kg
WHAT IS THE EURO NCAP RATING?
As Ami is a quadricycle, it does not go through the same ratings as a car would. Ami does comply with all regulations that apply to quadricycles and I'm sure you would agree, a safer mode of transport than either an e-bike or e-scooter which is a much more suitable comparison
WILL AMI FEATURE ISOFIX POINTS TO ALLOW THE FITMENT OF A CHILD SEAT?
No, Ami does not feature ISOFIX anchor points; we highly recommended that you do not fit a child seat in the Ami
WHICH TYPES OF FINANCE WILL BE AVAILABLE IN THE UK?
Full details will be communicated as soon as possible, please check back here closer to the on-sale date
WILL AMI BE AVAILABLE ON MOTABILITY?
We are speaking to Motability to confirm if this is possible, but quadricycles have been available on Motability previously so we expect this will also be the case for Ami
