Britain’s cheapest electric ‘car’ that maxes out at 28mph now available for £20 a month

Between rail strikes and record-breaking fuel prices, commuting to the office has become one of the most arduous parts of the workday.

Electric cars are cheaper to run but still command a hefty upfront price, which rose this week as the Government scrapped its £1,500 grant.

If you don’t want to brave the elements by bike, you can take the new Citroen Ami to the office and back with just one charge for the price of a mobile phone contract. It just won’t get you there very quickly.

Technically more of a four-wheeler than a car, the Ami’s tiny 6kW engine and top speed of 28mph mean the Ami is now available to lease in the UK for just £19.99 a month, with a £2,369 upfront payment.

Described by the Telegraph’s auto correspondent as a “tiny electric hum” and reminiscent of the post-war 2CV, the Ami has been available in France since 2020, where it can be driven without a license from the age of 14.

There it’s popular with middle-class teenagers driving it to school, as well as older drivers who for some reason may not have a full driver’s license (no danger of speeding here).

In the UK you must be 16 and have the equivalent of a moped license to drive the Ami. Britain’s cheapest electric ‘car’ that maxes out at 28mph now available for £20 a month
