We tested the Citroën Friend, the small electric city car which drives itself from 14 years old

Small, agile, electric and inexpensive, the Citroën Ami creates the event. For urban and driving courses without a license, it is displayed from € 6,000, bonus included.


By its size and curves which give it a malicious air, the friend immediately attracts the benevolent attention of pedestrians like motorists in the city. The city is precisely its favorite field since it has been designed to compete with public transport and two wheels, while evolving in complete safety unlike these.

With its 4 wheels and a closed interior, sheltered from bad weather and heated, The friend can accommodate two passengers in acceptable comfort with a driver barely 14 years old !


75 km of maximum autonomy

The friend is driven by a 6 kW electric motor powered by a 5.5 kWh lithium-ion battery block housed under the floor. It recharges in just 3 hours on an electrical outlet of 220V thanks to the cable stored on the passenger side.

The friend can also be recharged on a wallbox via an appropriate cable (optional) or a public terminal. Its autonomy is maximum of 75 kilometers and its speed is bridled at 45 km/h.

Citroën therefore did not consider it necessary to offer him a lighthouse commodo, the friend always moving the codes on.

Perfect visibility

Philippe Lacroix

By settling behind the steering wheel, we appreciate the incomparable brightness of the friend thanks to the large glass surfaces associated with standard panoramic roof. Visibility is optimal.

On the left side of the driver’s seat, three buttons command the car: front, zero and rear.

Its featherweight and low speed do not require assistance or steering (with a short -term steaks of 7.20 m), or brakes that are drums.

Rolling trains from the 208 offer a handling without problem, but suspension comfort is rudimentary and the nonexistent soundproofing lets you perceive the noise of the electric motor.
