Mini Electric 2020 UK review

  Mini Electric 2020 UK review Mini’s EV comes up a little short on range but goes the distance in other key areasEven though it rides fractionally higher than a standard car, the Mini Electric’s low-mounted battery means that the centre of gravity is a net 3cm lower. Despite its weight gain, the car can run a 0-60mph time of 7.3sec, only 0.4 slower than a Mini Cooper S.

Citroën ’s Ami , the tiny two - seater electric car that was first revealed as a concept last year, will be released this spring. The Ami is absolutely tiny at Citroën says the cars will be available to rent on both a monthly and minute-by-minute basis. You’ll be able to rent the Ami for €19.99 (around ) a

Citroen introduced a bargain-priced two - seater electric city car named Ami . It was developed with both private users and car-sharing programs in mind. It offers space for two passengers in closed, heated cabin with a panoramic sunroof and windows that flip up manually like on the emblematic 2CV.

The French firm hopes that the Ami, which remains true to the Ami One concept shown a year ago, will appeal to a new generation of buyers as the appetite for more traditional entry-level cars, such as the C1 (which is unlikely to be replaced), wanes. It will be launched in Europe this summer, although UK sales haven’t been confirmed.

Crucially, the Ami is classed as a quadricyle, like the Renault Twizy, which means it can be driven across Europe without a driving licence by those aged 16 or older.

The Ami is 90mm longer than the Twizy, at 2.41m, and has a 40mm-wider turning circle of 7.2m. Under the floor of the Ami is a 5.5kWh lithium ion battery that can deliver up to 47 miles of range, while a sole motor allows it to hit a top speed of 26mph. The battery can be recharged in just three hours from a domestic socket.

Opinion: Citroen leads the way for low-cost urban transport

  Opinion: Citroen leads the way for low-cost urban transport French firm's new two-seat electric car, the Ami, is a bold step into a car-sharing futureThe Ami is classed as a quadricycle, like the Renault Twizy. This has two crucial benefits: it’s perfect for city living and you don’t need a driving licence to sit behind the wheel, meaning 16-year-olds can drive it. In France, the lower limit is 14 years old.

The Citroën Ami is a new take on urban mobility. It’s electric , cheap and doesn’t require a license. In short, it’s less of a car and more of an electric scooter with two seats, doors It can be rented long term at a cost of €19.99 (including VAT) per month with an initial payment of € 2 ,644 (including VAT).

Citroën is offering three usage models: long-term rental, car-sharing and cash purchase. Rental requires a deposit of €2644 (currently £2227) and monthly payments of €19.99 (£17). Through car-sharing scheme Free2Move, Citroën parent firm the PSA Group’s offering, subscribers can drive the Ami for 26 cents (22p) per minute. To buy, the Ami costs €6000 (£5054).

Acquiring an Ami will be an entirely online process, in which the EV can be delivered to one’s home or collected from a pick-up point. It will also be available in traditional Citroën dealerships, as well as pop-up stands in shops, such as French department store chain Fnac.

The Ami’s doors open in opposite directions, being rear-hinged on the driver’s side and front-hinged on the passenger side – a configuration intended to help access. There are two fixed, semi-opening windows, which Citroën flags as a nod to the iconic 2CV. A large glass surface, including a panoramic roof is claimed to give occupants a feeling of space as well as good visibility.

Renault Morphoz concept previews electric SUV

  Renault Morphoz concept previews electric SUV While the model hints at upcoming SUV's design, the shapeshifting concept is designed to act as both city car and long-range cruiserThe Morphoz is intended as an urban family car for 2027, with its modular design allowing one vehicle to serve multiple functions. But more significantly, underneath that conceptual tech, the car is built on the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance’s new CMF-EV platform, which will be used for Renault’s first electric crossover, due later this year.

Citroen says the ami – 100% Electric (to give it its full, stylised name) “has no equivalent in the mobility landscape” and that it will provide “protection greater than that offered by two - or three-wheeled vehicles and greater independence and comfort than public transport”. It’s not wrong either.

citroën has introduced an electric , two - seater city car that people as young as 14 can drive offered on a sort of 'subscription' service. citroën is taking orders for the ami starting on march 30 in france and several months later in spain, italy, belgium, portugal and then germany. the first ami vehicles are

The interior is closed and heated, while the two seats are positioned side by side so that taller people can fit. Citroën claimed a carry-on suitcase can fit in a recess at the passenger’s feet. Sat-nav and music are accessed via a smartphone placed in a dedicated area in the middle of the dashboard.

Citroën describes the Ami as a “a practical response to new mobility expectations for short journeys [providing] easier access to city centres, micromobility for everyone and a real alternative to scooters, bicycles, mopeds and public transport, and at reasonable costs”.
