Citroen's unique and compact Ami electric vehicle has managed to secure an impressive 43,000 sales in just two years since its launch, demonstrating that speed is not the primary concern for all car buyers. The micro EV boasts a modest 8 horsepower (8 PS) and a top speed of merely 28 mph (45 km/h).
Despite its modest performance, Ami buyers have shown a desire to maintain a sense of style and individuality. To meet this demand, Citroen has introduced the Ami Pop trim, which includes four alloy-look wheel trims, a black graphic strip under the windshield, black front and rear bumper sections, a rear spoiler (albeit with minimal aerodynamic impact), and a set of door and quarter panel graphics.
This year's Ami Pop continues the same design concept, retaining these features while updating the stickers with a more vibrant look that introduces a touch of yellow. This yellow accent is also carried over to the interior, featuring a yellow bag hook. While the changes may not be groundbreaking, there is one styling tweak that has a significant impact on the Ami's appearance.
The latest Ami Pop now boasts a pair of dark headlamp bezels, designed to complement the other front-end trim elements. A similar design was previously seen on the door-less Ami Buggy and Ami Tonic, but it's the first time these bezels have become available on the Ami Pop. This alteration to the vehicle's appearance highlights the importance of details in creating a distinctive character.
In addition to the cosmetic updates, Citroen has made functional changes to the Ami. The driving selector, previously located on the door sill, has been shifted to the center console to enhance ergonomics. This adjustment places the selector alongside essential components like the USB socket and ventilation controls, and this change is set to be introduced to other Ami versions in early 2024.
