Citroën has released Ami, an electric car that will be available on a subscription service to city-dwellers as young as 14 years old as it doesn’t require a driving license.
Described by the French automobile manufacturer as a “non-conformist object”, the Ami car is classified as a fully electric quadricycle, and can therefore be operated without a driving license.
This means that people as young as 14 in France, and 16 in other European countries, will be able to drive the car, granted that they have passed a road safety certificate – a short course offered in some European countries that does not require a test.
