2.5-meter long Citroen EV to debut at the Geneva show
Car manufacturer Citroen has revealed further details about its upcoming supermini EV. The car is called Ami One Concept, is 2.5 meters (8.2 ft.) long and will premiere at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.
More specifically, the company will be bringing along two versions of the same city car, one of which will sport an open-top body design. Citroen believes that the Ami One will be able to offer a better alternative to other means of transportation, whether public or private.
The entire car weighs only 425 kilograms (937 pounds) and tops out at 45 km/h (28 miles per hour). Once fully charged, it can cover up to 100 kilometers (62 miles). You can replenish the battery using a regular wall socket or a dedicated car charging station, but you will have to wait for 2 hours for it to reach full charge.
Other features listed for the Ami One Concept include a sound warning system for making pedestrians aware about the approaching electric car, a 5-inch infotainment display, and a multi-function joystick that manages to combine the honker, the gear selector, the volume knob and the engine start button in a single unit.
Citroen expects the Ami One Concept to be especially popular in car sharing, where it will be available for rental periods ranging flexibly from a mere 5 minutes to 5 days. You will also be able to lease the car and eventually buy it out completely.
