The electric answer to city travel.
The cute and compact Ami is packed with joie de vivre. Smaller than a smart car and infinitely cooler, it’s basic price of £7,000 makes it an ideal second car choice for city dwellers.
In its native France, you can order an Ami in supermarkets (whilst buying your baguettes) and licence-owning French moped riders can get behind the wheel from the age of 14.
Whilst it might not be possible to buy this for your teen when the Ami arrives in the UK, this nippy little EV still definitely has the “ooh la la” factor.
