A few months ago, Citroën launched its (very) small electric car Ami. Today the French manufacturer is trying to seduce professionals with the same friend that was converted in cargo mode. The new My Ami Cargo is in fact “an innovative solution for electrical delivery that combines all the advantages of Ami with a total usable volume of over 400 liters and a payload of 140 kg”.
The friend of Citroën also in cargo mode (for the professionals)
Thus, this cargo version of the small Citroën Ami of course retains this atypical look, but with a completely redesigned interior. Indeed, the passenger compartment has been converted into a 260 liter storage space that can accommodate a payload of 140 kg by replacing the passenger seat with a modular and protected box made of 7 polypropylene partitions.
“Mein Ami Cargo offers an ingenious answer to the new challenges of professionals who express the need to transport objects in an intelligent, functional, electric and economical vehicle. It offers a practical and modular loading volume and benefits from an agile, safe electromobility solution with a unique character. It is a vehicle that offers a concrete answer to last mile delivery and especially to small parcels, the number of which has grown exponentially in recent months, ”explains Laurence Hanson, Product Director at Citroën.
There is thus a partition between the driver and the loading area, a modular shelf with a load capacity of 40 kg, a flat floor that can be adjusted on two levels, and closed and independent storage in the rear area.
Of course, this little Citroën My Ami Cargo also retains its electric character. The 5.5 kWh lithium-ion battery can be charged in just 3 hours as easily as a smartphone from a simple 220 V household socket. It has a range of up to 75 km and a 6 kW motor that can travel at a top speed of 45 km / h.
