The Citroën AMI, an electric car without a license, is manufactured in the Groupe PSA plant in Kenitra, Morocco. It costs 6,900 euros and already attracts a lot of customers.
Already a thousand orders registered. The price of the Citroën explains the multiplicity of orders. The automaker says 56% of buyers were drawn to its price. The production capacity of the Citroën AMI is 20,000 vehicles per year.
“We are trying to offer an alternative to public transport, and to electric scooters. You arrive in an environment where the logical budget for one person is around 70 euros per month . This is the price of a Navigo pass -pass for public transport in Ile-de-France-, it is overall the monthly cost of a scooter”, explains Vincent Cobée, CEO of Citroën.
And to continue: “We defined a solution that seemed suitable to us: four wheels, doors, windows, something protective, two seats, a lot of interior space, something that makes it possible to make 90% of urban journeys completely electric. In our opinion, this solution should be found between 20 and 50 euros per month following the initial deposit or in a purchase value of 6000 euros”.
