Here at Planetauto, we certainly think so! Everything about it is quirky, so even if we didn't know much about it, we'd have to take a closer look...

Powered by a 5.5kWh battery, it charges to 100% in three hours - and no, it doesn't have the capacity for rapid charging. You don't really mind though, as you charge it at home after you've used it, leaving it ready for your next adventure. With a range of around 46 miles, it can certainly get you to the shops or to the school and back, and at £7,695.00 on the road, it might just be what you are looking for.

Ideal for city landscapes, it's top speed is 28mph (do you think Citroen will believe me that I managed to top it out at 29mph?) and with so many built up areas now having a max speed of 20mph, means it's ideal for most cities and towns.

Also, it's small size means it's nippy, as it's less than two and a half meters long -talk about small. That's the thing - it's exactly what it looks like - a small, cute little electric runabout that's perfect for family errands, or regular short work commutes, and quite a lot in between. There's even a cargo version up here in The Lakes being used as a fish and chip delivery van. 

Also, don't be put off by the fact that it's left hand drive. It was the first left hooker I've ever driven, and it was really easy to get used to, in part thanks to the massive windscreen providing excellent visibility. 

All in all, the Ami does exactly what is says on the tin, and to top it off, it does it in a rather cute and quirky fashion - how many other small electric cars can say the same?
