Since making its debut in 2020, CitroÃ«n AMI has been turning heads around the world â€“ not least here in the UK. Much to the delight of a large and growing number of UK customers, the CitroÃ«n brand is now able to announce that the zero-emissions AMI will officially launch here in the spring of 2022.
From today, the first 12,000 customers who have already registered their interest online are invited to join the queue to secure their AMI with a Â£250 refundable reservation fee. From Monday 27 September the reservation system will be open to everyone.
All customers are reminded that AMI will be adapted for the UK market, but will remain left-hand drive. One significant benefit of amis left-hand drive configuration when being driven in the UK, is that it will allow for a kerbside exit from the vehicle for the driver when parking at the roadside in a city centre. For anyone driving AMI in the UK, a full UK driving licence is required as with a traditional passenger car.
A true breakthrough from CitroÃ«n, AMI is a daring response to the challenges faced in todayâ€™s cities and urban environments. As a 100% electric vehicle, AMI emits zero-emissions in use and has a 5.5kwh battery that recharges in just three hours. With a range of 46 miles and a top speed of 28mph, AMI is a modern solution that delivers on CitroÃ«nâ€™s promise to provide affordable and clean mobility solutions for all.
Since it was first revealed in February 2020, CitroÃ«n AMI has received significant interest from UK buyers and national media alike. The vehicle continues to receive widespread acclaim from industry experts, taking home the â€˜Microcar of the Yearâ€™ title in the GQ Car Awards 2021 and the â€˜Technology Awardâ€™ in the Auto Express New Car Awards 2021.
AMIâ€™s zero-emission credentials ensure it is exempt from Congestion and Ultra-low Emissions Zone (ULEZ) charges. With Londonâ€™s ULEZ due to be extended in October 2021, and other cities looking to introduce similar measures, AMI is a â€˜future-proofâ€™ solution to mobility concerns in many UK cities.
With a length of only 2.41m and an incredibly tight turning circle, CitroÃ«n AMI is compact and agile, providing an easy solution for navigating busy streets and fitting into narrow parking spaces. The undeniably quirky CitroÃ«n AMI has space for the driver, a passenger and one small item if luggage, with the heated interior bathed in light thanks to the modelâ€™s panoramic glass sunroof. In a nostalgic nod the iconic CitroÃ«n 2CV, the manual side windows of AMI can be opened by flipping the glass upwards into a fixed raised position. Buyers have access to a wide range of personalisation options, thanks to colourful accessory packs and additions that allow each owner to make their CitroÃ«n AMI truly unique.
Eurig Druce, Managing Director of CitroÃ«n UK, said: â€œI am absolutely delighted to announce that CitroÃ«n AMI is launching in the UK. With cities and urban areas introducing stricter limits for vehicles, and people demanding new mobility solutions, AMI shows once again how CitroÃ«n is adapting to meet the demands of the times. CitroÃ«n AMI is a new all-electric mobility solution for the UK thatâ€™s totally unique â€“ fun, exciting and accessible to all.
â€œAfter thousands of UK buyers have already registered their interest in CitroÃ«n AMI, we are very excited to confirm that the AMI will arrive in the country in spring 2022.â€
CitroÃ«n AMI is the latest vehicle available to UK drivers within CitroÃ«nâ€™s ever-growing electrified vehicle range. Models already in UK showrooms include the all-electric New Ã«-C4 hatchback and Ã«-spacetourer MPV, plus C5 Aircross SUV Hybrid. By 2025, CitroÃ«n will offer an electrified variant across its entire model line-up.
