Citroën’s Ami is coming to the US as part of a new EV subscription service. The small EV costs around $6,000.
Free2Move is a car-sharing and subscription service the PSA group launched in Europe, it now falls under the Stellantis Group following a merger with FCA. Basically, for a monthly fee, you get access to their vehicle fleet, including some Citroën and Peugeot EVs. Free2Move said its monthly price includes insurance, assistance, and maintenance, and said it offers a flexible contract without commitment on duration. The service is available in Washington, DC, and will be in Portland and Los Angeles soon. Free2Move plans to service five other US states before the end of the year.
“We’re bringing some Amis to DC and Portland for testing via our Free2Move car-sharing service,” a Free2Move official who spoke to Autoweek. said. “It’s a six-month test, and is restricted since the vehicle is not homologated for the US.”
Citroën’s Ami is just 94 inches long and 60 inches high. It has a 5.5 kWh battery pack and a 6 kW electric motor for about 44 miles of range. The little tike tops out at 28 mph, clearly limiting its use to city traffic. In fact in France, it qualifies as a quadricycle and 14-year-olds can drive it. Renting it through Free2Move could be a hoot
