Citroen unveils mini electric car AMI

Citroen, one of the brands from French carmaker Groupe PSA, has unveiled a mini electric car aimed at young city commuters. Branded as AMI, the two-seater car will go on sale by June 2020 and it will be priced at $7,500, claims the automaker in a release.

The Citroen AMI EV can run up to 70 km on a single charge, claims the automaker.

The small car is 2,041 mm long and is one of the new models, among a range of upcoming cars with electric powertrain. This vehicle is aimed to stimulate demand for electric models among the buyers.

Citroen plans mainly to sell the car online, as it informs. According to the rule in major European markets, the two-seater cars can be driven without a licence.

The car is powered by a 5.5 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, located under the floor. As the automaker claims, this battery can be charged easily via the onboard charging cable in the passenger side doorway.

The battery requires 3 hours to be fully charged through a 220V socket.a
