Stellantis executives recently put a stop to Peugeot's planned American comeback. Instead, they will use the supergroup's roots in the US to sell Citroën's smallest and cheapest car on our shores. There's a catch: the golf cart-style American electric car will only be available in Washington, DC, and you won't be able to purchase a car.
Free2Move, the car sharing service that Peugeot brought under the Stellantis umbrella, announced on its official LinkedIn page that something new is coming to Washington, DC soon. The name of the car was not given, but the preview image it published shows a silhouette that clearly fits the Americans; nothing else looks like this.
Reading between the lines tells us the pocket-sized Ami will be joining the Free2Move fleet in the country's capital. We don't know how many units are being shipped from France via Morocco where they are being built, but we are not expecting a tidal wave of two-seater electric vehicles. Chances are that few cars will be sent initially for Free2Move, Stellantis and Citroën to get feedback from users. Details like how much it costs to rent one are also up in the air.
Across the pond, the Ami is available through car sharing programs, rental agreements or Citroën dealers. Power comes from an eight horsepower electric motor, which doesn't sound like much until you factor in the Ami's 1,070 pounds weight. Citroën cites a range of 43 miles from a 5.5 kilowatt hour lithium-ion battery and a top speed of exactly 27.9 miles per hour on level ground. It was developed exclusively for short city trips at low speeds.
Further details will be announced in the coming months. When it lands, the Ami will be the first Citroën to be officially brought to the US since the company left in 1974. It won't be America's first American, however. The two-cylinder Ami 6 on a 2CV basis was sold in the United States in the 1960s with headlights with a sealed beam and larger bumpers.
