The Citroen AMI was a (lightweight) electric quadricycle that was an immediate and good commercial success. A model that then gave rise to several interpretations, distinguished by their particular appearance. Let us recall, for example, the Italian designer Massimo Alba, who in 2022 interpreted AMI, signing a unique example.

The equipment also includes an under-dash lamp, tinted side and rear windows, a Bluetooth audio system and a hands-free calling system. There are also exclusive accessories covered in leather and houndstooth pattern, as on the 1980 2CV Charleston.
