Garden chairs and a sunroof: Citroen revives the iconic billigbil

A small, French billigbil with deck chairs as seats, spartan interior and a large sunroof which can be folded away by hand.

It might immediately sound like the key words for the classic Citroën 2CV, which first saw the light of day in 1948. But it is in fact the last new scream from Citroen, we are talking about. Ami One called the car, and provisionally is a concept and must be displayed for the first time at the upcoming motorudstilling in Geneva.

the Parallels to the 2CV is quite deliberate. For at Citroën will once again make a car that everyone has access to, write the manufacturer in a press release. In 1940, the France, it was the peasants who lacked a car, and now it is the young people who are opposite a small motorized revolution - at least according to the French.

The old 2CV was in his time also called a studenterjaguar, and Ami One suitor to the same audience with a simple structure and power. The car can according to Citroën to run up to 100 miles on a charge, while top speed is manageable 45 km/h.

This means, in turn, that the car in some countries will be able to be run by persons without a driver's license. The idea is that the car is in the higher degree to be an alternative to the bus than for the car, writes Citroën.

the Manufacturer has gone to yderlighederne to make the car as cheap as possible. A wide range of parts - including the doors - are, for example, made completely identical, the Citroën logo is painted on and excess fat as the ability to close the window halfway up is cut from. According to the media Autocar is either completely open or closed.

at The same time, the 2.5 meters long French only weighs 425 pounds.

Despite the anguish to lower the cost of production is the Ami One, however, not conceived as a car to be sold in the traditional sense. According to Citroën, there is a higher degree that the car must be included in the delebilsordninger and kortidslejes of young city dwellers.

the Concept of a sovereign byløsning, why an ultra-compact design with room for exactly two people and no luggage is selected, writes Citroën in the press release.

the Manufacturer has so far no plans to put Ami One in production. Across from Autocar points out, Citroën boss Linda Jackson, however, that the future of mini-Citroen may very well be something similar.
