As per French legislation, the Ami falls into the category of a light electric quadricycle and can also be driven by 14-year-olds without the need of a driving licence. The vehicle's features will also likely appeal the tech-savvy Gen Y.

Recently, Citroen also turned the Ami into a delivery vehicle by removing one of the two seats, giving it a luggage space of 260 litres and a load capacity of 140 kgs. The mini cargo model can be used as a means of transportation for courier and service companies.
