The one behind looks smaller 🤔 An illusion or do they come in size S and XS? :lol:
Yes exactly Jim the body-kit just gives it a bigger 'beefier' look ...very customisable (imo) :wink:
Ahh gotcha :D And there was me about to make an appointment with Specsavers :lol:

Citroen Ami getting plenty of coverage as they launch the Ami Cargo. There is more buzz about this small quadricycle than the rest of the Stellantis offerings put together.

And hardly surprising - it's cute, different, electric, and something that Citroen once had a real panache for producing.
The Arrival and Rivian designs tell us something too.
Makes such a refereshing visual change from yet another, another, another lookalike saloon or SUV.

Another video just released: I find this presenter a total idiot, trying to be clever all the time and failing miserably. Why do these twits insist on likening everything to the fastest 0-60 and trying to copy Jeremy Clarkson?

With a 45 mile range and speed limiter, it's a city car for goodness sake, designed for flat roads and nipping out to the shops.

Worse than you thought Steve, and Marc you are spot on with your comments.

Excruciating! Room101able! Like the light quadricycle though :-D

The New Citroen Ami is an Opel Rocks-E

Post by NewcastleFalcon »

In the enlightened continent of Europe, it would appear that selling a French badge to the Germans is a step too far so out comes the German Market Version in a good strong German Sounding name.

Gallery here....its just a Citroen Ami in new clothes.

But you'd have to be a total dimwit not to see that is the same car regardless of the badge - not fooling anyone there.... they must think the public are idiots.

Sadly Marc, many of them are. I have two mates who wouldn't be seen dead in Renault Trafic vans, so they both have Vauxhall Vivaros!! #-o

I mean at least the shared variants of the Nemo / Fiorino / Bipper and the C1 / Aygo / 107 and others like the vans at least have styling differences both externally and internally to give people some reason for wanting a specific brand, but the Ami is just an Ami - the front the same as the back / reversible doors - it will look the same whatever badge they put on it most likely. An utterly awful shoebox on an Duracell Eveready.
