Green Transportation: Citroën's EV. Rent & Buy If You Dare

by: Citroën
green transportation  citro n s ev  rent   buy if you dare | Breaking News

Citroën has launched a new electric vehicle that's a tiny car and an enclosed scooter at the same time. It's called the ‘Ami’, a two-seater vehicle made for city transportation that's so small, it doesn't even require a license. Citroën's new EV is a tiny two-seater that only costs $22 a month.

That is, so long as you're at least 14 years old in France or 16 in other European countries. The automaker seems to have based it on the Ami One Concept it unveiled in 2019 with a few changes to its final design.

Where is Citroen founded?
Citroën is car manufacturer based in France. It was founded by André-Gustave Citroën in 1919 and it became the first mass-production car company outside the USA and pioneered the modern concept of creating a sales and services network that complements the motor car.

Citroën's Ami One EV: Range

It has a 5.5kWh battery under the floor that can run for 44 miles or 70 km on a single charge. You can simply plug the EV into any standard 220v outlet and wait three hours to fill its battery. You can also only drive up to 28 mph or 45 kmh. Yes, you can't replicate Fast and Furious stunts with it, and it doesn't have a lot of range, but the Ami was designed for city driving and narrow streets anyway.

When did Citroën start developing electric vehicles?
Citroën's history of electric production began in 1989 with the C15 C25 trucks. These formed the base of the inspiration for the first mass produced electric car AX Electrique in 1993. Since then a number of models including Saxo Electric, C-Zero and Berlingo Electric Van have been developed.

Citroën has various purchasing options to choose from if you're interested. You can pay €20 (US$22) per month for a long-term rental of two years if you make an initial payment of €2,644 ($2,900), though you can also buy one outright for €6,000 ($6,600). In case you want to try it out first before buying, you'd also be able to rent one from the Free2Move car-sharing service in Europe for €0.26 (29 cents) per minute.

Citroën will start accepting orders for the Ami on March 30th 2020 in France, followed by Spain, Italy, Belgium, Portugal and Germany a few months later. The first deliveries are expected to arrive to French buyers in June.

What is the oldest electric car?
The first working electric motor and electric vehicle, a small locomotive that used two electromagnets, a pivot and a battery, was built by Thomas Davenport, an American from Vermont, in 1834 or 1835.

Citroën's EV Emi One: History

Citroën is perpetuating 100 years of innovation and boldness dedicated to the freedom of movement with the presentation at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show of Ami One Concept, a disruptive all-electric object that places digital technology at the heart of a new experience of urban mobility affording more freedom and peace of mind.

  • Faithful to the Brand baseline 'Inspired by You', Ami One Concept is the response to new customer behaviour and the challenge of the energy transition in the city.
  • The concept illustrates Citroën's vision of freedom in the city expressed by: #LibertyElectriCityMobility

The Ami One electric car concept gives you...

  • Freedom of use for everyone: accessible without a driving licence, Ami One Concept is accompanied by an innovative global digital ecosystem fostering a modern, cheerful and broadly accessible mobility experience. The ecosystem rethinks the customer journey and offers customers 'on demand' use ranging from 5 minutes to 5 years and spanning carsharing, rental and purchase.  It includes a special mobile app that motorists use to manage their relationship with the object, providing access to a portal of services that simplify each journey.
  • Freedom of movement: city-centre access with an ingeniously designed 100% electric mobility solution that is ultra-compact and agile, offering mobility freedom for two people in an intuitive and connected object.
  • Freedom to be modern: an assertive, bold and colourful personality, and a virtuous and symmetrical design for a hip and protective object, for enjoying the city in style and comfort.

Before you go!

Electric or no, unless it is Solar Powered it burns Coal or other fossil fuel to recharge the Batteries. Vladimir Putin was asked during his Yearly 4 hour Q&A with the Russian People either in '19 or '20 (the live audience is around 2,000 or so and there are SM questions from the entire population) "Why don't we make Electric Cars in Russia". He responded immediately, "Because they burn Coal".

Sounds like an excellent way to make electric cars radically unpopular! 28mph max and too wide to overtake easily means you will always be the bottleneck.

Yes, average speeds are lower, but sometimes we go faster. It's average, not maximum.

For safety, in the UK, these need a max speed of 45. This will mean you can keep up with traffic in a 40 limit, uphill.
