This is the “off-road” concept of the Citroën AMI: robust and aggressive design in small dimensions

Do you feel that the Citroën AMI needs a more adventurous touch? Without problem, the French company has thought of giving its little “object of mobility” a much more country style. We are talking about Citroën My Ami Buggy Concept.

The urban version of this 100% electric car that we have been able to test on the streets of Madrid is an interesting alternative for anyone over 16 years of age to move around the city at a 45 km / h top speed and with a range of 70 kilometers.

But Citroën has given free rein to its imagination by creating a concept of a version with a more intrepid and adventurous personality. In the words of the company, “a recreational vehicle for weekends, holidays by the sea or in the countryside.”

As you can see in the images, the Citroën My Ami Buggy Concept sports wider wheels and a redesigned front and rear, with a sturdier bumpers and grille-protected headlights.

The sides, meanwhile, have with new fenders and tubular protections along the bottom of the doors. And to show its true adventurous spirit, Citroën has fitted a spare wheel to the roof rack.

In a clear nod to the classic Mehari, as recognized by the company itself, The Citroën My Ami Buggy Concept does not have doors. In their place were removable transparent fabrics that are stored behind the seats and can be easily placed, for example, if there is rain.

The company has also redesigned part of the interior of its little adventure car. This has interchangeable and washable seats memory foam. In addition, numerous storage areas and a holder to place the mobile phone.

If you were thinking of buying one of these vehicles, we have bad news: The Citroën My Ami Buggy Concept will not reach the public. The company has created it as a design exercise that “illustrates one of the many faces that could be developed for the MAI.”
