CITROËN AMI CARGO CONFIRMED FOR UK LAUNCH IN 2022

 

CITROËN AMI CARGO CONFIRMED FOR UK LAUNCH IN 2022
  • Citroën’s commercial version of Ami – Ami Cargo Electric – will go on sale in the UK in 2022.
  • New Ami Cargo Electric is a practical mobility solution for delivery drivers and business operators in urban areas, with a payload of up to 140kg and a maximum load capacity of 400-litres.
  • UK versions of Ami Cargo Electric will remain left-hand drive and will feature a seven-part cargo module in place of the passenger seat (in Ami).
  • Ami Cargo addresses future urban mobility needs, and like Citroën Ami, boasts a 100%-electric range of up to 46 miles.
  • From today (Wednesday 27 October, 2021), businesses across the UK can secure their very own Ami Cargo Electric with a £250 refundable reservation fee – click this link to make a reservation.
  • To date, over 1,400 private customers have reserved the passenger version of Citroën Ami for UK delivery.

 

Hot on the heels of the announcement that Citroën AMI will come to the UK in Spring 2022, Citroën UK is pleased to confirm that the commercial version – Ami Cargo Electric – will also launch in the UK during 2022.

 

Ami Cargo will be adapted for the UK market, but will remain left-hand drive. The extremely compact Ami Cargo is designed to allow fleet and business operators to deliver packages and run services in urban areas. New Ami Cargo Electric features a 5.5kWh Lithium battery pack, connected to a 6kW electric motor for 100% emissions-free driving. The vehicle can be fully charged in just three hours and is capable of up to 46 miles of range. With zero CO2 emissions in use, Ami Cargo is exempt from current and future Congestion and Ultra-low Emissions Zone (ULEZ) charges.

 

New Ami Cargo Electric has been designed to provide maximum load capacity, whilst maintaining the model’s compact and agile build. The model is 2.41m long, 1.39m wide and 1.52m tall, and has a tight turning circle of just 7.20m, ideal for city driving, manoeuvres and parking.

 

The interior has been re-designed for even greater practicality. The passenger seat found in Ami has been replaced by a seven-part polypropylene module that can hold up to 260-litres and 140kg of cargo or goods. This extends the interior storage already available, giving Ami Cargo a total load capacity of 400-litres.

 

New Ami Cargo Electric prioritises driver comfort with the addition of a vertical partition between the driver and cargo area. Positioned to provide optimum space behind the wheel, it ensures the driver is always protected when out on the road. The vehicle is also fitted with a secondary modular shelf unit capable of holding up to 40kg, which can be converted into a desk when parked. There is also a two-way adjustable floor allowing the vehicle to carry larger items.

 

Ami Cargo Electric will join the brand’s existing 100%-electric ë-LCV line-up when it arrives next year. Citroën UK already offers all-electric versions across its entire LCV range in the form of the compact ë-Berlingo Van, the multi-award winning mid-size ë-Dispatch and the larger ë-Relay. Citroën will offer electrified variants across its entire model line-up by 2025.

 

Eurig Druce, Managing Director of Citroën UK, said: “I am incredibly excited to see the Ami Cargo arrive in the UK next year. With more cities across the UK introducing restrictions for conventional vehicles, Ami Cargo Electric will provide businesses and fleet customers with the opportunity to continue their urban and last-mile operations in a practical, sustainable and cost-efficient way.”

 

Launch timings, pricing, specification details and supply arrangements will be communicated in due course.
