Citroën has launched a light commercial version of its compact, zero emissions Ami mobility solution, the new My Ami Cargo.
This Cargo version features the same 5.5kWh lithium battery pack found in the Ami. It is connected to a 6kW electric motor for an emissions-free driving experience. My Ami Cargo can be fully charged from a standard domestic socket in just three hours and comes with a capable 47 miles range – ideal for daily use in most urban areas.
Ami is also the perfect size for city life as it is 2.41m long, 1.39m wide and 1.52m tall. The main change is the removal of the passenger seat, which has been replaced by a seven-part polypropylene module that can hold up to 260-litres and 140kg of cargo or goods. Coupled with the interior storage already present on-board, My Ami Cargo is able to offer a total load capacity of 400-litres.
The engineers at Citroën placed a vertical, separating partition between the driver and cargo area. This has been positioned to provide optimum space ensuring the driver is protected and can enjoy driving in comfort.
There is also a secondary shelf unit that can hold up to 40kg and has been designed to work either as a storage unit or as a mobile desk. It also features an A4 size cut-out that can hold forms or other items of paperwork firmly in place.
The cargo floor in the My Ami Cargo can be raised and locked vertically, so as not to obstruct the cargo zone, or lowered into a horizontal position to match the level of the vehicle floor. This latter position allows the user to carry longer objects with a maximum length of 1.20m. Cargo retainers are provided to secure fragile items.
The EV has a compact footprint, making it agile in town. Its small size – along with its tight turning circle of just 7.20m – simplifies city driving, manoeuvres and parking. It is equipped with a steel tubular structure that protects against impacts, which offers superior safety compared to two- or three-wheel vehicles, as well as protection from adverse weather conditions.
The new My Ami Cargo will be ready to order from early June of this year, with prices starting from only €6,490. Rental is an option via a long-term lease agreement, with payments starting from just €24.18 per month.
Although still not confirmed for the UK, Citroën has launched a ‘Register Your Interest’ form for the Citroën AMI passenger vehicle to gauge public interest levels for potential introduction to the UK market.
