Citroën announces the market entry of its new Citroën Ami Tonic 2022, a new, high-end, elegant version with options.
Citroën continues the success of its electric vehicle without a license, AMI. After selling more than 20,000 units, the brand with the chevrons has announced the launch of the Citroën Ami Tonic 2022, a stylish top-of-the-line version with additional options.
THE SUCCESS OF THE CITROËN AMI ELECTRIC CAR
In February 2020, Citroën launched the AMI, a small electric city car without a license accessible from 6900 € or 19,99 €/month. Despite its limited performance, namely a maximum speed of 45 km/h and a range of 70/75 km, the Citroën AMI quickly found its public.
In April 2022, the brand with the chevrons announced having exceeded 20,000 sales. These promising figures have prompted the Stellantis Group (Citroën’s parent company) to think about AMI equivalents for other manufacturers in the group. Projects have already been launched at Opel with the Opel Rocks-e and at Fiat with the Topolino.
