DRIVEN: Citroen Ami Buggy. You’re BONKERS but we love you | Electrifying

#citroenamibuggy #citroenami #electriccars

If you're one of those individuals who take a look at the Ami and say, "Yeah, I like it but I 'd choose something more pricey and even less practical", then we've got great news.

This is the Ami Buggy. As you can see, it's most likely one of the most bonkers cars and trucks ever made. Prior to we go any even more, we're going to quickly describe what the Ami is. The Ami is formally categorized as a quadricycle, which is part way between a motorbike and an automobile. A quadricycle doesn't require all the safety package and whatnot that a cars and truck does, however on the disadvantage, its power output and leading speed are limited.

The Buggy comes in one specification – Buggy, which makes choosing your ideal specification a lot easier. You don't even require to select the colour, since it just comes in khaki green.
Door bars hinge at the front or the back, depending upon which side you're sitting. Why? due to the fact that it's cheaper to make one part instead of a separate left and right-hand one. Clever. Doors (if you can call them that) resemble the bars you get on a fairground flight.

It won't shock you to find out that are some extremely strange design discuss the Ami.
We're not exactly sure how much downforce the rally-style roofing spoiler creates, and if you need some assistance regarding where the wheels are, there are arrows on the wheel arches.

If you do plan to take your Buggy out in the rain, has you covered– quite literally– with zippable side panels. They're not especially glam and to be truthful, you 'd be much better off with a mac and a set of wellies.

Since the Ami is categorized as a quadricycle instead of a cars and truck, it does not have to be fitted with all the typical safety set. So rather of an air bag, you get this, a zip-up bottom back for your phone and secrets. Whether that's an advantage all comes down to your attitude to run the risk of. Are you more worried about surviving a mishap than losing your door secrets? If it's the latter, this might be your ideal car.

Under the floor is a 5.4 kWh battery. Which is small. You charge it by means of a typical socket or utilize the adaptor to access a wallbox. It takes around four hours to charge from empty to complete. If you're charging on cheap-rate electricity – it'll cost you the handsome amount of 49 pence to completely charge.

Okay, we have actually provided you the excellent stats first, due to the fact that the bad ones are a bit harder to digest. Citroen claims that the Ami will do up to 46 miles on a charge. Which is alright … if you only endeavor 23 miles from home every day.

A minimum of you do not stress over the heating system draining your battery … since there isn't one.

    Perfect for Aix en Provence….. maybe Glasgow not so much 🙂 Then again the weather proofing is no worse than a Caterham or Morgan…

    These would sell so well in the UK if they had doors and windows. A real successor to the Smart ForTwo that’s perfect for popping to the shops or bumbling around a city.

    The word you were looking for Nicola is ‘gate’, definitely not a door!

    Its ridiculous and silly, and that’s is the point of it. I like it and would love to have one for some summer fun driving to the store. Not many beaches here but lots of forest roads.
    Silly seeing people complinign it got no doors or windows. By the regular one if its a bog standard run of the mill car you want. The rest of us like fun.

    If it looks like a Golf Cart, Drives Like a Golf Cart and Sounds like a Golf Cart then it’s …………. An Ami Buggy!

    I’ve only seen one in the wild… not this version but the standard car… I think I’d rather have one of those Renault electric buggies than this car to be honest.
    Is that yellow thing on the steering wheel for beating your head on when frustrated at the lack of pace?😂

    It’s a tad minimalist, bonkers, quirky etc but I think it oozes personality. As a local town car for popping to the shops when your local roads are 30 limit (less likely to get a speeding ticket unless it’s down a steep hill or cliff) it could be the ideal runabout. Be careful in Wales with a default 20 town limit. You won’t need a shopping trolley either as the shopping wouldn’t fit. A err.. no the only passenger would have to live with it all on the lap. Those zippy doors could be entertaining at the fast food drive though though when its tiddling down with rain. I love it but my life goes more than 40 miles a day at ideally greater than 28 miles per hour at some point but if it didn’t this could be quite a hoot.

    Top speed of 28… too fast for Wales
