The PSA Group and Barid Al Maghrib have just signed an agreement to develop a version of the Citröen AMI (100% electric) for the benefit of the fleet and mail-package distribution network. This vehicle, which represents the first electric car produced in Morocco, in the PSA plant in Kénitra, is one of the 6 models of the electric offensive launched by the chevron brand in 2020. “An original and accessible means of urban locomotion to all”, summarizes PSA Maroc.
The agreement between PSA and Barid Al Maghrib was signed in the presence of the Minister of Industry, Moulay Hafid Elalamy. “Citroën Ami 100% electric is a first step in the urban electric mobility industry in Morocco. The newborn is part of Morocco’s vision to develop a high added value industry guided by the principle of sustainable development”, underlined Minister Elalamy, on the sidelines of the signing ceremony between the two groups. For Elalamy, “this agreement reflects government policy, making public procurement a lever for the development of industrial ecosystems creating jobs and developing exports”.
According to Samir Charfan, Executive Vice-President of Groupe PSA for the Middle East / Africa Region, “this vehicle is the result of collaboration between the central and Moroccan teams of PSA for design, engineering, purchasing and production. Citroën Ami is one more stone in the building of our group in the Kingdom of Morocco and in the Middle East / Africa region”.
With this new icon of clean and sustainable mobility, Citroën offers an innovative vehicle accessible to all.
