  • Fun fact, I managed to get a 40 or so year old tractor through a McDonald’s drive thru and by god did I get dirty looks

  • J’aiiiiiimmmmmme ❤️

  • Any smaller and it would be a bicycle.

  • This is literally made for secondary students in France. When you go to school you can see up to twenty of these in front of the school

  • How is an electric car with rare earth metals good for the environment

  • Honestly? I understand the concept. And it is a great town car. Especially for the narrow continental city streets.

  • A shopping trolley which doesn't need a drivers licence, a recipe for disaster......??

  • 7200€ wtf its a cool but expensive toy

  • No airbags?

  • In Romania this would last top 5 months, due to the paths we have, ohh sorry, roads we have.

  • The back wheel looks like it’s about to shit the bed @ 13:33 😆

  • Lot of risk driving this toy.

  • Very interesting car!! Grettings from Chile

  • Well... Atleast its fugly

  • There is some Christians watching your programme, do not mention the Lord's name in vain, you lost me.

  • Buen concepto y mal diseño. El coche es tan feo que daña a la vista, la caja que tiene por carrocería parece balancearse demasiado en las curvas, no parece cómodo. En definitiva, no te lo van a lo bueno.

  • Sorry I love the car but I don't live in your country I live in America that would be great over here . But you know it just won't happen . Typical

  • How much the price ?

  • The design uff. ... Emmm.. uhm.... Designers must be effort for the electric one .maybe an 1920 retro look?

  • My grandmpa on wheelchair is faster than this car,and he’s more highly chance to get laid than this car’s owner

  • "like parkour but in a car, car car!" 🤣 Probably should have went with parkcar or carkour lmao

  • Citroen Amı güzel isim bulmuşlar

  • Shitroën

  • 12:40 VW Up! looks like quite a big car... I have never thought I'd say that

  • I am sure I am not the only one that clicked on this video because of the supermoto in the thumbnail

  • This shit is completely useless, its just a golfcart without a damn radio.

  • LOL an armchair on wheels, but how about dropping out for beer in time of match break :) Should come in handy xD

  • The Ami is moped quad with canopy. Like a scooter, but with more stability and rainprotection.

  • The concept car was smashing, but this (expletive, deleted) thing is just butt ugly.

  • Excellent review. Coventry is indeed a shit hole.

  • If you think you need another mirror, just get one and glue it to the windscreen. Wouldn't this be legal and practical?

  • "Sorry if you live in coventry" Not only do I live there, thats whitley where I live, hahahaha

  • Wait. WHAT? You don't need a drivers license? Take my money.

    • Oh.. . you can't get one in the UK. Sorry son. I think I will have to do the drivers license test. L

  • ❤️👏👏👏

  • Zero Street Cred embarrassing to drive typical weird Citroën French design that doesn't work.

  • i would buy one if it could do 65 mph and has at least 120 mi range

  • Imagine a 1/100 model of this "car"

  • Imagine being hit from a G - Wagon with let’s say 30mph.

  • So in your mind because the car is so small you feel you are justified in parking in the "Trolley Park"? Since the car is electric I'm surprised you didn't just drive in to the store, expecting everyone to step out of your way. Or just park it on the sidewalk and let everyone walk around.

  • If it prevents teens dying on the road with their 50cc motorcycles, it's all good.

  • If only normal cars could be this cheap. 45kmh is too slow for many roads.

  • Best test but in France should 14 year for 5 horse power without nothing and 16 year for 8 up to 15 horse power with traffic code.

  • Much needed for India

  • this is a tall electric caterham,yes

  • 13:29 first time someone made the wheels of a citrin Ami smoke

  • I like it ! Perfect City Car!

  • stick a hayabusa engine in it....should be fun :D

  • Someone has woke up one morning and said: I have an idea, let’s put some wheels on portable bog and sell it as a vehicle.

  • ahahah une citroen ami dans un autre pays, je ne l'aurais pas imaginé ! Mais pourquoi pas… si ça se trouve on va exporter ce bousin x)

  • It's a goddamn enclosed golf kart. Garbage.

  • If you get hit by a truck in that 😱 it's going to be like an elephant kicking a football

  • I have to admit I really enjoyed my time in Coventry when I worked for JLR from 2018 -2020. Living on the Binley Rd near Stoke Green it was quite handy to walk to City Centre. But careful, they caught me on the bus lane with my Austin Mini near Far Gosford St in the roundabout...lovely memory!

  • The car is shit, just admit it.

  • Holding up traffic !, can be embarrassing 😀😎

  • If tata nano is designed perfectly it would be tis car

  • If you were in Cambridge, you'd be using an electric cargo bike. Open topped 😁

  • Everyone in Germany knows Coventry. "Coventrieren" means completely ruining/destroying something, not so sure about the Origin of that word...

  • Nice space inside for 2 people

  • To get one: Order from your LEGO online shop.

  • The overtly glorified French quadracycle. If this is made by a motorcycle company located outside Europe, chances are ppl would look down on the Ami even more.

  • fengshui lol

  • No UK? Don’t think so

  • I want to see a race across London between this and a Twizzy

  • But really now, imagine if the people who have the space would use this car for city transit while having a real car for real business. that would be dope

  • Stupid car for stupid people.. wait for dacia spring a real cheap car.

  • It's got an 3 pin socket.....that's 🤪

  • You want comfort and safety, you buy a CAAAAR. This is abattery with 4 wheels, maybe 5 (steering wheel)

  • Please, metric system, just please.

  • Fucking love it.

  • Same the Bajaj Qute 😅

  • Subscribed! Awesome video! I love how you are able to bring out all the positives in this wonderful little car without making fun of it or the people who would potentially use it. Kudos.

  • I know how you can increase the range put a petrol generator somewhere and plug the cord in still the same speed but much more range could go quite far but idk if it’s street legal anymore lol

  • You do need a license to drive it.

  • The fact the car costs 6000£ is crazy expensive for that little trashcan with wheels

  • 🤗 👍 ☝️ 😎 🇵🇭 Niceone 🤩

  • What a nice phone booth!

  • I wish it had a 20 horsepower premium version with radio and all the amenities

  • Having to leave the door open to charge is my biggest gripe. I give it a day before someone puts some extra battery's and an upgraded controller in it. Its made for Boring Tunnels.

  • Why does an English speaker need to have English subtitles???

  • I got stuck in Coventry once for 8 hours went to pick a car up for a company wasn't ready for collection. Then had to wait for a lift back. Coventry is a shit but lots of shopping do to there luckily 🤣🤣🤣

  • Typical of Citroen to resurrect the 2CV

  • Przecież to jest jak fiat Multipla tylko trochę brzydszy

  • Does it has ac?

  • What licence do you need, how much does it cost?

    • 6K€ with no licence in France and >14 yo!!!!

  • When he said "0-60 never happens because it has a top speed of 28MPH", I literally laughed so hard I started coughing.

  • Hey, Jesus Christ!!! As in Jesus Christ has anything to do with any malfunction on this vehicle 😂😂😂😂😊

  • « Ami » means « friend » in English. So you should say Citroën Friend. 😂

  • I think the obvious evolution would be a model with a second set of driving wheel and pedals for the other seat... pointing the other way! Think of it! You go into your garage in forward drive, and the next day You come out of Your garage in forward drive! Brilliant!

  • In Sweden when youre 15 you can drive a mopedcar, it’s almost fully plastic and really tiny, (almost like this Citroen) and it can go 45km/h. And then we’ve got “epa traktor or a-traktor” they could we a whole Volvo or Mercedes and so on, (even big trucks), but they can only go 30km/h.

  • Citroën? Did he just say citrun? Is that how you say it in english? That just sounds stupid

  • Can I get a clarification on legislation of having a 3 year old kid on the front passager side of this, in a baby seat? As I saw this is not registered as a car, but as a scooter. Can a mother take her kid from kindergarden or go shopping with her kid with this or not? Germany relevant info. Tnx

  • It'll be problem if you live in asia

  • 6:42 my girlfriend talking about me with her friend

  • My dream " car"💛

  • It look pretty thoo. Styling is different. I love it

  • Can agree with you about living in Coventry. Even though I'm just outside of Coventry city, it's still a hellhole that I don't really like very much

  • 😍🥰

  • Filmed in Coventry :D

  • I want one of these

  • The price is to high for that. The twinge electric can be bought for 10.000€ and it has 80 hp and goes 200km and more than 100km/h and has everything a car needs to have. Airbag, central locking, heated seats, 5 seater and so on
