Citroen has launched a new version of its Ami electric car specially designed for people with disabilities. The Citroen Ami for All is a compact, two-seater vehicle that can be driven without a license and offers easy access and operation for people with reduced mobility.
The Citroen Ami for All is based on the standard Ami, which debuted in 2020 as a low-cost, urban mobility solution. The Citroen Ami has a boxy shape, a symmetrical design, and a 5.5-kWh battery pack that provides a range of 43 miles and a top speed of 28 mph. It can be charged from a standard household outlet in about three hours.
The Ami for All adds some features that make it more accessible and comfortable for people with disabilities. For example, it has a sliding door on the driver's side that opens 90 degrees, allowing easy entry and exit. It also has a swivel seat that can be adjusted in height and depth and a retractable ramp that can accommodate a wheelchair or a scooter.
The Citroen Ami for All also has a simplified driving system that can be operated with one hand. It has a joystick that controls the vehicle's acceleration, braking, and direction, as well as buttons for the horn, lights, indicators, and windshield wipers. The dashboard has a digital display that shows the speed, battery level, and driving mode.
The Ami for All is available in two versions: one for private use and one for car-sharing. The private version can be customized with different colors and accessories, such as stickers, roof bars, or storage nets. The car-sharing version is part of Citroen's Free2Move service, which allows users to rent the vehicle by minute, hour, or day using a smartphone app.
The Citroen Ami for All is currently available in Italy, where it costs €8,900 (about $10,000) for the private version and €0.26 (about $0.30) per minute for the car-sharing version. Citroen plans to expand the availability of the vehicle to other European countries in the future.
The Citroen Ami for All is an innovative and inclusive mobility solution that aims to improve the quality of life and autonomy of people with disabilities. It is also an environmentally friendly and affordable alternative to conventional cars. By offering this vehicle, Citroen hopes to make mobility more accessible and sustainable for everyone.
