The Citroen My Ami buggy at the beach

Citroen has launched a new off-road version of its Ami electric city car, and it’s so cool it sold out in under 18 minutes.

Dubbed the My Ami Buggy, just 50 examples of the tiny off-roader were offered exclusively to customers in France.

It took just 17 minutes and 28 seconds for all of them to sell.

One eager customer even managed to complete the whole order process in 2 minutes and 53 seconds.

The Citroen My Ami Buggy was released in a small batch after a concept was revealed in December 2021 and people flooded the brand with interest.

It certainly looks the part with its khaki paint, black bumpers and fender flares, and yellow highlights.

There’s also a removable soft-top to let you enjoy the sun – a neat throwback to the 2CV.

It also features metal tube gates instead of conventional doors, meaning the tiny two-seater offers unbridled access to the great outdoors.


That’s assuming you can get there, though.

All versions of the Citroen Ami feature an 8hp (6kW) electric motor and 5.5kWh battery.

That’s only enough for a top speed of 44.9km/h (27.9mph) and 74km (46mi) of range.

That’s fine for use around the city, but not quite enough to go adventuring.

Although only offered in France for now, there is a chance the UK could also receive it “if there’s sufficient interest from customers”.

Each of the 50 French-delivered units will bear a numbered plaque, indicating the exclusivity of the tiny off-roader.

Across nine countries, 21,000 examples of the tiny EV have been sold so far.

Prices start from $9,395 (£7,695) for the base model, and go up to $10,860 (£8,895) for the top-spec Ami Pop.
