Citroen Ami
Europeans may drive the Citroën Ami from the age of 14 years old, even without a driving license.
Finally may we behold, not just an electric car, but a four wheeled vehicle legally drivable by everyone… even without a license.

At least, that is… in France.

Yes, according to Citroën, their revolutionary new vehicle, the AMI, is not only 100% electric, but because it is classified as a “light quadricycle”, a loophole in modern laws means it can be driven by 14 year olds in France and by 16 year olds in the rest of Europe, as long as they have passed Compulsory Basic Training for riding a moped.

Yet you guessed it. Here in Britain where even the most basic luxuries such as PETs are outright banned from public places, we can expect a similar heavy handed restriction on the Citroën Ami.

Following the anti-celtic BREXIT recently, Britain is no longer a member of the EU and so… “whallah!”, this vehicular freedom will never be grantable to British citizens.

Whilst current UK law states a 17 year old may drive a car providing they have a license, there is no guarantee the Citroën Ami will be accepted as a regular vehicle.

Let alone will we be entitled to drive the thing without a license.
