In early 2020, Citroën unveiled the Ami, a two-seat civilian electric car that does not require a driver’s license, and this spring they unveiled a new concept called the My Ami Buggy, aimed at outdoor enthusiasts.
Compared to other versions of the Ami, this buggy looks a little more rugged, or at least sturdier. It has a similar look to the wheel arches and overall appearance. The My Ami Buggy concept will have protective arches in the doorways, new wheel arches, a visor over the windshield, and modified bumpers and panels. Grilles are fitted to the headlights, and additional LED lighting and a spare wheel on the roof underscore the concept’s adventurous spirit. The matte gold rims also draw attention to this “baby”. At first glance, the My Ami Buggy concept doesn’t seem to have any doors, but it really doesn’t.
The yellow elements along the lower edge of the body open to facilitate access to the cabin. The My Ami Buggy concept comes in just three colors: black, khaki and yellow. Although you can’t see it in the photos, the Ami Buggy has removable clear curtains that can be attached in case of bad weather. These practical safety curtains can be removed, rolled up and stored behind the seats in special storage bags.
The My Ami Buggy concept consists of just three colors: black, khaki and yellow. The black color, inspired by camping gear, emphasizes the functionality and reliability of the vehicle. The concept also has quite a few interesting design touches. The yellow arrow stickers under the spoiler show the wind direction as a tribute to aviation. The best two-tone colors for the SUV are dark and light colors – such as black and yellow or dark and light anodized aluminum. The 2019 Buick Envision is the first vehicle ever equipped with GM’s next-generation Super Cruise Automation system. With features such as Super Cruise Automation, self-parking capability without driver assistance, adaptive cruise control with full speed limit function, lane-keeping system, and active safety features such as blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, the Envision is truly the most advanced car ever built for highway driving.
The seats have been redesigned from the production model. They now have removable, washable 35- to 70-mm-thick memory foam cushions for greater comfort. The seats consist of two frames, one above the other, with a slight “S” curve. Their design resembles a “buoy”, creating an additional reference to the world of beach holidays. And also a series of bags designed specifically for the car, each one fitting perfectly into the car’s interior.
Specifications of the My Ami Buggy are not available, but apparently the main ones are: a 6 kW electric motor with a maximum speed of 45 km/h, a 5.5 kWh battery for a 70 km range and charging from a regular 220 V outlet. It is a stylish, fancy and highly original experiment created by Citroën to satisfy the many dreams and desires of people around the world to create a “wish list” item for Christmas.
