INNOVATION: The Affordable Electric Tiny “Car” From France

Sign us up for an Ami. please!

“It’s been roughly two years since the scooterpocalypse, when scooter startups shelled our cities with zippy, dangerous, rentable e-scooters, and consumers took the bait—proving that demand for last-mile transportation is real.

But scooters are an imperfect solution: They’re tricky to ride, especially if you have limited mobility, and they don’t really let you carry more than a backpack. These shortcomings leave room for other ideas to take hold. Segway proposed a supercharged wheelchair “S-Pod” earlier this year. And now, the auto manufacturer Citroën has come up with a radical idea of its own: A tiny, two-seater electric vehicle called the Ami (which means “friend” in French). It looks a whole lot like a car, but legally and practically it’s not. Heck, the Ami is only about 9 feet long, a foot shorter than a comparable Smart Car (the most iconic tiny car, which launched in 1998 only to cease most production in 2019). And it’s headed for the streets of France this summer.”
