Citroen's versatile electric beach buggy, My Ami Buggy, is set to make a comeback with 1,000 units available for order starting June 20. This unique electric car offers a creative and enjoyable driving experience while maintaining affordability and sustainability. Designed for beach and open road enthusiasts, the Ami Buggy will be priced at $11,300 (£10,495), and deliveries are expected to commence by the end of summer.

Responding to popular demand, Citroen produced 50 Ami buggies in 2022 after showcasing a concept version, which reportedly sold out within 18 minutes. The automaker claims that the new edition of My Ami Buggy will be "full of character, both fashionable and robust," inviting users to play in the urban jungle and embrace a different way of living in the open air, especially near the sea.

Since its launch in late 2020, Citroen has sold over 30,000 vehicles from its Ami series in nine countries. Alongside My Ami Buggy, the series includes the standard Ami and My Ami Cargo.

A practical offering for short city runs

The new edition is based on the compact Ami, measuring 2.41 meters in length, 1.39 meters in width, and 1.52 meters in height.

With a total weight of 1,069 lb (485 kg), including the battery pack, the EV is equipped with a 5.5 kWh battery, providing a range of 43 miles (69 kilometers) and a top speed of 28 mph (45 km/h), catering to the basic needs of users.

My Ami Buggy is a two-seat buggy featuring door bars instead of conventional side doors. Optional accessories include zipping clear coverings and a waterproof canopy, which can be removed or peeled back on perfect weather days.

A preferred choice for many

Citroen touts the affordability and practicality of My Ami Buggy, making it an attractive choice for urban residents, students, and individuals seeking an eco-friendly option for short-distance travel. In addition, as a quadricycle, certain European countries do not require a license to drive such vehicles, making them popular among teenagers.

Citroen reports that the Ami has contributed to adopting greener transportation in Halki, Greece, where the police and coast guard utilize the Ami for their patrolling needs. Similarly, the island of Maddalena in Italy has added seven Ami vehicles to its fleet, used by the police and port teams to promote clean mobility.

As the demand for these fun and environmentally conscious vehicles continues to rise, Citroen may again witness a swift sell-out of their limited offering within days.
