And on the sidelines of the 2022 World Cup…

Et en marge du Mondial 2022... - Citroën Ami Tonic, un haut de gamme à 8 990€

“And on the sidelines of the 2022 World Cup”…

Why this section? Because there are many new products this fall, and you certainly expect to see them all on our mini site “Auto World” in which you traditionally find new models from all manufacturers.

However, several manufacturers having chosen not to be present at this edition of the Paris Motor Show 2022, a certain number of new products will not be exhibited at Porte de Versailles in Paris, and in particular the one presented in this article. In order to give you an exhaustive vision and meet your expectations, we have nevertheless chosen to publish them in the mini-site Caradisiac dedicated to the Paris Motor Showbut in a special section “And on the sidelines of the Mondial de l’Auto”.

Unfortunately, Citroën’s small electric heavy quadricycle is not immune to inflation. This funny little urban machine cost €6,900 when it was launched in the summer of 2020. On the strength of a great commercial success, it now starts at €7,790 in its basic version (ecological bonus of €900 not deducted). And if you’re ready to put even more money into a vehicle that can only go 45 km/h and cover 70 kilometers on a single charge, the chevron brand now offers the “Tonic” version which plays the top of the line. range. The Ami Tonic takes up some style elements from the very funny My Friend Buggy sold in a limited series a few weeks ago (at a price of €9,790 all the same).

Benefiting from a colorful exterior presentation thanks to the reinforcement of a few fluorescent stickers, the Ami Tonic is also making efforts inside. There are three storage bins, a smartphone mounting system, door nets, a central separation net, a bag hook, floor mats and a “dongle” for connecting your smartphone to the car. On the other hand, there is no mechanical modification, the Ami Tonic remaining motorized by a small electric block of 8.2 horsepower.

The price of the Ami Tonic climbs to €8,990, reduced to €8,090 once the ecological bonus of €900 has been deducted. This brings the modest electric quadricycle without a license from Citroën dangerously close to a real car like the Dacia Sandero (€10,990 without air conditioning). And if you find it way too expensive, remember that the Renault Twizy now starts at €11,600.

Caradisiac, partner of the Paris Motor Show

As in 2018, Caradisiac is once again a partner in 2022 of the Mondial de l’Auto which will take place in Paris from October 17 to 23. The Caradisiac editorial team will thus be relocated to its own stand for the duration of the show to analyze, dissect, photograph and film all the new models.
