In February 2020, Citroën surprised everyone by unveiling the Citroën AMI, a brand new electric mini-city car. Aimed above all at urban dwellers without a license, this cart is designed to make daily journeys with its 70 km autonomy and its maximum speed of 45 km/h. To encourage users to turn to the AMI rather than to a scooter or an electrically assisted bicycle, the chevron brand has adopted an aggressive pricing strategy: an invoice of only 7400 € (once the ecological bonus of €900 has been applied) or a financial lease at €19.99/month over 48 months after payment of an initial deposit of €2,644.

And if it was mocked at its beginnings for its design or its lack of finish and equipment, the Citroën AMI quickly found its audience. Indeed and according to figures published by the manufacturer this Friday, April 22, 2022, more than 20,000 AMIs have been sold in France since its launch at the end of 2020.

This will be particularly the case at Opel, which presented in autumn 2021 the Opel Rocks-e. If you find resemblances to the AMI, it’s normal. It is simply the same vehicle, rebadged Opel for the occasion. Fiat could also launch its own version of the AMI if the latest rumors are to be believed. baptized Fiat Topolinoit would present a similar design and the same technical characteristics, with the difference that it could house a convertible roof. This model could land on the Italian market as early as 2023.
