New Citroen Ami Buggy: UK allocation limited to 40 units

Citroen’s all-electric quadricycle will go on sale 20 June

The Ami quadricycle spawned an off-road inspired version last year called the My Ami Buggy. The wild design has stayed true to its concept-car form, but if you want one you’ll have to be quick, because just 40 examples are coming to the UK.

Pricing for the Ami Buggy starts from £10,495, with sales orders specifically opening at 2pm on 20 June. In France last year, the initial 50-strong production allocation of the Ami Buggy sold out within 18 minutes.

Technical details remain the same as those of the regular Ami. There’s a 5.5kWh battery allowing a top speed of 28mph and a maximum range of 46 miles.

Based on the even tougher-looking My Ami Buggy Concept revealed in 2021, the production version retains several elements of the one-off show car. Though its stance and ride height revert to mirror those of the regular Ami.

The most obvious visual cue that you’re looking at the Buggy version is the removal of the Ami’s doors, in favour of metal tubing. A detachable soft-top also features - a nod to the Citroen Mehari - which can be rolled up and stored behind the two seats. The chunky off-road tyres of the concept version have been replaced though, with new 14-inch steel wheels finished in gold taking their place. 

The production version does without a front bullbar and protective grilles for the lights, but the My Ami Buggy features extended black plastic wheel arches and black tinted front and rear protective skid plates.  

The concept’s strong yellow interior scheme has been toned down, but many exterior and interior yellow touches remain, and the seats are trimmed in black material with contrasting yellow stitching.

Do you prefer the Citroen Ami with or without the off-road add-ons? Let us know in the comments...
