New Citroen My Ami Cargo compact courier van unveiled
Citroen has introduced a modified version of its electric Ami city motor vehicle, designed precisely for use as a compact courier van for the city landscape.
It’s known as the Citroen My Ami Cargo and it’ll go on sale in France this June, with price ranges setting up from €6,490 (all-around £5,600), which includes a €900 subsidy from the French govt.
From the outdoors, the Ami Cargo seems to be equivalent to its passenger-carrying sibling, conserve for the company branding and some undecorated metal wheels for the most primary types.
Inside, Citroen has taken off the regular Ami’s passenger seat and equipped a storage pod in its spot, which is separated from the driver by a reliable partition. The cargo compartment has a ability of 260 litres and can carry a payload of 140kg.
When coupled with the relaxation of the Ami’s new interior storage cubbies, Citroen claims the Cargo has a maximum ability of 400 litres. Which is a little bit additional house than you get from the boot of the fourth-technology Skoda Fabia.
The cargo location also has a couple tie-down factors and a top-adjustable flooring, which lets the driver to transportation goods up to one.two metres long. Mounted on major of the box is a modular hinged shelf, which can hold up to 40kg and double as a cellular desk.
Citroen has also included an added protected storage bin at the rear of the cabin, which it claims is designed to retain valuables these as smartphones, sun shades or wallets out of sight.

Like the regular Ami, the Cargo makes use of a five.5kWh battery pack, which feeds an 8bhp electric motor. Major speed stands at 28mph, and Citroen claims it’ll go over 47 miles on a single demand.
Charging the battery can only be finished via a regular a few-pin plug. On the other hand, because of to the diminutive measurement of the battery pack, it only normally takes all-around a few hrs to attain a hundred percent ability.
Citroen is however assessing regardless of whether there is ample desire for the Ami to be brought to the British isles but, if it does ever make it throughout the Channel, there is a opportunity this new Cargo variant will come with it. On the other hand, equally would likely only be available in left-hand generate.
