French automaker Citroen has released a miniature electric car Ami, made in the original design. A two-seater vehicle does not even require a driver’s license and a remarkably affordable price – the company offers retraining from pedestrians to drivers for only $ 22 per month under certain purchase conditions.
The novelty received a 5.5 kWh battery, one “refueling” of which is enough to overcome 70 kilometers of track. At the same time, you can charge the car from a standard outlet with a voltage of 220 volts: an hourly session is enough for 45 kilometers, and an “electric tank” takes up an electric car in three hours.
A feature of the Citroen Ami is that driving this vehicle does not require a driver’s license. The main condition is the owner’s age of 14 years in France and 16 years in other European countries. Special conditions apply for the purchase of miniature vehicles: with a down payment of $ 2,900, the monthly payment will be only $ 22 for a period of two years. If you wish, you can purchase Ami right away by paying $ 6,600 – this is the cost of about four iPhone Pro Max with a 512 GB drive.
An electric car is also available for rental through the Free2Move service – one minute of rental will cost 29 cents. Citroen will begin accepting orders for Ami in France starting March 30th. In the coming months, the electric car will be available in Spain, Italy, Belgium, Portugal and Germany. The first deliveries of new items to the French market are expected in June.
