In case you thought Citroën’s diminutive EV couldn’t be any more adorable, prepare to meet the My Ami Buggy. It explores the idea of a more adventurous variant of the quadricycle to show off its outdoorsy and practical traits. It joins the passenger and cargo version of Ami, but this rugged interpretation is solely a concept for the time being.
It rides on chunky tires, complete with a spare wheel mounted on the roof and black plastic body cladding on the wheel arches. The off-roader imitation is accentuated by metal grill covers for the headlights and taillights, plus bull bars at both the front and rear. The My Ami Buggy has lost its doors to make room for tubular protections with storage bags attached. Inside, there are rainproof canvasses to offer some degree of protection in case the weather takes a turn for the worse.
Used as a police car in Greece, the diminutive EV in its leisure-oriented guise has also received an LED light bar on the roof and striking neon green accents. Look closer and you’ll notice what Citroën refers to as the roof cap to provide extra protection from the elements. The French automaker with the double chevron logo has fitted four anchoring points to install a camera holder while the side mirrors can be removed.
Even the interior has been subjected to a couple of changes to make the tiny cabin more comfortable thanks to new seat cushions. The foam has been increased from 35 mm to 70 mm, with memory foam being added to make the seats softer. A neat feature is the possibility to simply yank out the interchangeable seats from the shell to wash them.
Although the cabin is extremely small, there are quite a few storage areas, including in the rear-hinged doors at seat height. It inherits the dashboard-mounted storage bins from the standard model, albeit with a few changes for the My Ami Buggy, which also gets a matte gold metal storage rack above them. Many of the interior components have been made using 3D printing.
As a final note, it’s worth remembering Opel will be selling its own version of the Citroën My Ami, known as the Rocks-e.
