CITROEN'S tiny Ami electric car will be coming to the UK in 2022 as the French car maker accelerates its drive to deliver affordable clean mobility solutions.
With a range of 46 miles, a recharge time of three hours and a top speed of 28mph, the Ami is a zero emission urban runaround that is just 2.41 metres long.
Prices are still to be announced but are expected to start from around £6,000 when the car arrives next spring.
Despite its diminutive proportions it is a two seater that is surprisingly roomy inside and ideal for daily commutes or local shopping trips.
It measures 1.52 metres high, is 1.39 metres wide, a small turning circle of just 7.2 metres and weighs in at only 485kg.
Eurig Druce, managing director of Citroen UK, said: "I am absolutely delighted to announce that CitroÃ«n AMI is launching in the UK.
"With cities and urban areas introducing stricter limits for vehicles, and people demanding new mobility solutions, AMI shows once again how Citroen is adapting to meet the demands of the times. Citroen AMI is a new all-electric mobility solution for the UK that's totally unique - fun, exciting and accessible to all.
"After thousands of UK buyers have already registered their interest in Citroen AMI, we are very excited to confirm that the AMI will arrive in the country in spring 2022."
The UK model will be left-hand drive and already Citroen has had more than 12,000 inquiries from people wanting to know more about the car which joins Citroen's other all-electric models including the e-C4 hatchback and electric SpaceTourer MPV.
Citroen says it will be offering an electrified variant across its entire model line-up by 2025.
