SORRY NOW SOLD – SIMILAR WANTED
An electrifying Citroen Ami ‘My Ami Pop’ with one owner and 695 miles.
The Citroën Ami is a two-passenger electric quadricycle marketed by Citroën from June 2020 to present and is named after the original Citroën Ami produced between 1961 to 1978. The vehicle is also marketed as the Opel Rocks Electric and Fiat Topolino in respective German and Italian markets. To minimise production costs where possible, this unique design is symmetrical not only left to right but also front to rear, and with exception of the Fiat variant the front and rear panels match whereas the front panel on the Fiat is different to mimic the style of the brands classic 500 model. Another cost saving design is the suicide driver’s door and conventionally hung passenger door allowing the same panel to be used. The mainstream Ami variant is available in standard form with additional optional trim and colour packs as well as a My Ami Cargo featuring modular storage area in lew of the passenger seat and even a My Ami Buggy Safari style recreational vehicle. As a quadricycle the Ami and its counterparts are limited to 28mph and in France can be driven without a license for anyone born pre 1988 or from age 14 years for those with an AM license.

The ultimate city car for the fashion conscious, the frugal and the environmentally aware motorist, indeed a car to tick all three boxes! As with all standard body Ami’s, this desirable Citroen Ami Pop is in Ami Blue with the factory Pop Pack giving additional styling and equipment. The Orange Pack is included in the Pop specification but the listed specific Pop features are unique to this variant and really allow it to stand out against the rest. Having covered just 695 miles from new, the body panels, decals, trim and glass are perfect with no imperfections notable other than a tiny mark to the nearside rear corner. The underside is still clean reflecting the dry usage and factory labels to underside components remain in place. A very clever design neatly wrapped in the cutest of packages which draws bundles of admiration at every stop!
Inside, the surprisingly spacious cabin is brilliantly innovative. The driver enters through a suicide door whilst the passenger a conventional door, a smart thinking move in order to allow the same panel to be used each side to enable lower production costs, only one panel mould required! Deviating from conformist car layouts, the seating position is set well back and the slab fronted windscreen feels far away. Offering a respectful nod to the iconic 2CV, the side windows fold up and the ethos of basic motoring is also adopted. The heater fan is switched to allow cool ventilation or heat and there is even a horn. Tech-savvy drivers will appreciate the DAT@AMI smartphone connectivity with remote control button as well as the smartphone cradle, all present and correct. All Pop interior features are present including the immaculate floor mats and the Mistral Black upholstery and interior trim are in perfect order. Pure design brilliance!
