The distinctive zero-emissions Citroën AMI will officially hit UK streets in the spring of 2022 it was announced today.

The AMI will be adapted for the UK market, but will remain left-hand drive. For anyone driving AMI in the UK, a full UK driving licence is required as with a traditional passenger car.

The Citroën AMI was designed as a response to the challenges faced in today’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 seen as a modern solution that delivers on Citroën’s promise to provide affordable and clean mobility solutions for all.

Since it was first revealed in February 2020, Citroën AMI has received significant interest from UK buyers. The vehicle continues to receive widespread acclaim from industry experts, taking home the ‘Microcar of the Year’ title in the GQ Car Awards 2021 and the ‘Technology Award’ in the Auto Express New Car Awards 2021.

AMI’s zero-emission credentials ensure it is exempt from Congestion and Ultra-low Emissions Zone (ULEZ) charges. With London’s ULEZ due to be extended in October 2021, and other cities looking to introduce similar measures, AMI is a ‘future-proof’ solution to mobility concerns in many UK cities.

With a length of only 2.41m and an incredibly tight turning circle, Citroën AMI is compact and agile. The quirky vehicle has space for the driver, a passenger and one small item of luggage. In a nostalgic nod the iconic Citroën 2CV, the manual side windows of AMI can be opened by flipping the glass upwards into a fixed raised position. Buyers will also have access to a wide range of personalisation options.

Eurig Druce, Managing Director of Citroën UK, said: “I am absolutely delighted to announce that Citroën 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 Citroën is adapting to meet the demands of the times. Citroën AMI is a new all-electric mobility solution for the UK that’s totally unique – fun, exciting and accessible to all.

“After thousands of UK buyers have already registered their interest in Citroën AMI, we are very excited to confirm that the AMI will arrive in the country in spring 2022.”

UK pricing and supply arrangements will be communicated in due course, but sources suggest the price of the vehicle to be in the region of £6,000.

The first 12,000 customers who have already registered their interest online in the vehicle are now being invited to join the queue to secure their AMI with a £250 refundable reservation fee. From Monday 27 September the reservation system will be open to everyone.
