This is not a bike upgrade. The Citroen Ami is much more than that. Before you ask yourself, “Why would I spend money on a mini car?”, think about the huge benefits. If the sleek, modern, and very clever use of the same panels all over the fully customizable design doesn’t pique your interest, then maybe the fact that you can be mobile while being protected from the weather will, which is a huge plus when considering a bike that doesn’t have that option. It has a passenger seat for a companion, cargo space for your belongings or groceries, and the fact that it’s electric and has all the permit benefits that come along with that would sell to anyone.
What people aren’t talking about is how the Citroen Ami prepares the youth to be better drivers. Because you only need to be 14 or older to drive this car and there’s no license or permit needed, teens can start practicing safe driving before they even get behind the wheel of a full-sized car. Making the roads safer with smarter and more prepared drivers behind the wheel, the small size is a huge plus on cramped roads.
Looking at this car, you may seriously believe it could replace your car for 95% of its trips, at least the local ones. No more dangerous scooters or public transportation. The best part is that by simply driving your new Citroen Ami around, you are reducing your carbon footprint and helping the planet. Cars with zero CO2 emissions reduce air pollution considerably. They emit fewer greenhouse gasses and air pollutants than gasoline or diesel cars. And this takes into account their production and electricity generation to keep them running.
All in all, if you are looking for an affordable way to get around locally and in style, all while making the environment a better place, look no further. Even if you think the Citroen Ami is not worth the $6k price tag and don’t want to own one yourself, Citroen gives you the opportunity to rent one for only $19.99 a month. That is the price of a premium Netflix subscription, which you will no longer need because you are too busy riding in style!
