Stellantis Is Bringing A Baby Citroen To America

Industry News / Comments

But you can't buy one.

Volkswagen is showing us that electric cars don't have to be expensive or extreme to be fun or fast. It just released the GTX version of its ID.4, and we're quite impressed. But not everyone cares about performance. Not everyone needs a car capable of carrying five people. And not everyone wants to buy. As a result, Stellantis is working on its Free2Move mobility solution (which is essentially a car-hire service), and the latest offering in the service's range comes from Stellantis' European fleet. Like the ID.4, it's electric, but that's pretty much where the similarities end. Meet the Citroen Ami.

As you can see from the images above, we Free2Move hasn't officially confirmed that it is the Citroen Ami, but the silhouette and window bars make it clear that this is not a Smart fortwo Electric Drive. The car will be offered in Washington DC where Free2Move has been operating since its launch back in 2018. As for the Ami, it seats just two and is more of a quadricycle than a car. It's claimed to offer up to 47 miles of range but has a top speed of less than 30 mph, so this is definitely only meant for city centers.

So when can you take one for a drive? Well, as we mentioned, Free2Move hasn't officially confirmed the car's arrival in the US, so we can't give you an exact date. However, if fees don't change with the Ami's introduction, then it will cost you $349.99 to drive the car for a week, or roughly 50 bucks a day. Keep in mind that Free2Move's service agreement includes a 500-mile limit with $0.45 charged for every mile you do over that. And if you don't live in DC, the Free2Move service is expected to open its doors in Portland, Oregon very soon. Just don't leave the Ami unattended - you may return to find that the car has been carried down the road by delinquents.
