The Ami family is expanding with the arrival of the LCV model, My Ami Cargo, an innovative economic solution on the market, fully electric, ultra-compact and designed to meet the new needs of professionals, from delivery of small packages over short distances in an urban setting, to travel between sites.
«My Ami Cargo offers an ingenious solution to the new challenges of professionals who are expressing a need to carry goods in a vehicle that is clever, functional, electric and economical. It features a convenient and modular cargo volume, while offering an electric mobility solution that is agile, safe and unique. It’s a vehicle that provides a concrete solution for last-mile delivery, particularly of small packages, the volume of which has increased exponentially in recent months.
«My Ami Cargo represents a true business potential, as the first promising contacts made with a variety of commercial partners have confirmed. This offer completes Citroën’s utility vehicle range, and each model now offers an electric version», says Laurence Hansen, Director of Citroën Strategy and Product.
THE SOLUTION ADAPTED FOR NEW USES BY PROFESSIONALS
In My Ami Cargo, Citroën has created a modular cargo space next to the driver’s seat, to transport packages, mail, tools and items of all kinds in complete safety. My Ami Cargo thus offers functional storage combined with the benefits of an electric vehicle. It offers greater protection than a two- or three-wheel vehicle and proves to be more agile than a LCV vehicle from a higher segment, thanks to its ultra-compact shape and its easy handling.
My Ami Cargo is suited for urban delivery services, which have multiplied, in particular with the growth of e-commerce and home food delivery. It’s also a useful solution for many other uses, including local service companies (plumbers, electricians and locksmiths), self-employed professionals such as nurses, or administrations, local authorities and associations. My Ami Cargo is also intended for industrial sites, where certain employees make multiple trips from one structure to another to deliver documents, tools, small equipment, etc., for leisure and tourism infrastructures, such as camp sites, which make a significant number of very short trips daily to inform or assist their customers.
MORE CAPACITY IN A VERY COMPACT SHAPE
The “individuals” version of Ami surprises everyone by its interior space. It’s still one of the essential features of My Ami Cargo, ingeniously “small on the outside and big on the inside”. My Ami Cargo retains the atypical appearance of Ami, which inspires liking at the very first glance. It’s on the inside that things change, with layout of the passenger area into a 260-litre storage space that can accommodate a payload of 140 kg, thanks to replacement of the passenger seat with a modular protected box made up of 7 polypropylene parts.
Overall, My Ami Cargo has a useful volume of over 400 litres.
«Inspired by the version designed for individuals, My Ami Cargo retains the idea that guided the design of Ami (can be driven from age 14 up, economical, agile and suited for urban use, with peripheral visibility and electric engine). This is why we created an innovative interior space, allowing us to make an offer that’s unique on the market, while retaining the simplicity and clever design of Ami.», says Richard Meyer – Stellantis Commercial Vehicles Strategy and New Mobilities Manager.

And for fleets of more than 10 vehicles, Citroën workshops will be able to work on My Ami Cargo before delivery and can paint the bodywork a chosen colour, affix a logo in the form of a sticker or install a covering to represent the company.

Available 24/7 from a smartphone, a tablet or a computer, professionals can discover, configure, order and pay for My Ami Cargo online, without going anywhere.
A new feature lets you explore My Ami Cargo in all its finest details, a 3D video shows how the cargo box can be adapted and focus points describe its various features in detail.
