New Citroen My Ami Cargo LCV: Pictures, specs and price
Citroen has unveiled a commercial version of its ultra-compact electric city car, though it’s not clear whether the My Ami Cargo will come to the UK
This is the commercial version of the Citroen Ami: the French brand’s two-seat electric city-car. Named the My Ami Cargo, this LCV version of the ultra-compact EV has been designed for last-mile and food deliveries in urban areas.
Citroen has announced that the regular Ami will go on sale in the UK early next year, and we do expect the My Ami Cargo will also make its way onto British shores, too. However, Citroen has yet to confirm that.
The My Ami Cargo has a maximum load capacity of 400 litres and can carry a payload up to 140kg. 260 litres of which comes from the seven-part cargo module that replaces the passenger seat you get in a regular Ami. There is also a table for filling in and storing forms, and a secure storage compartment for a driver’s wallet or phone.
The My Cargo Ami uses the same 5.5kWh battery as the regular Ami, for a maximum range of 47 miles. The small battery also means you can fully charge the My Ami Cargo in just three hours from a conventional plug socket. The battery supplies power to the 8bhp electric motor to drive the front wheels.
The My Ami Cargo’s zero-emissions status makes it ideal for deliveries in cities like London, where it would be exempt from the Congestion Charge. Citroen hasn’t yet confirmed whether the Ami Cargo – or the regular Ami – will be sold in the UK.
The My Ami Cargo is also ideal for working in cities thanks to its tight 7.2-metre turning circle. Plus, the steel tubular structure of the My Ami Cargo makes it safer in a collision than motorbikes and other three-wheel options.
The My Ami Cargo will be available to order in France later this year, starting from €6,490 (£5,600), or will cost just €24.18 (£21) per month to lease from Citroen. For fleet orders of less than 10 My Ami Cargos, companies can have their logos added to the vehicles; larger orders from businesses can request bespoke modifications, like having their vehicles wrapped or painted in specific company colours.
