The quirky Citroën Ami has to be one of the most polarising cars we've tested, and its price and intended use must be factored into any verdict. Although it’s slow and has a tiny range, it costs less than half the amount to buy than the cheapest proper electric cars, while offering far better protection from the elements than a motorcycle. For a small niche of city dwellers with specific requirements, it's a great buy – but the obvious compromises mean it will be a far harder sell for most drivers.

You don't get much standard equipment, although there are ways to personalise your Ami to make it stand out, including exterior graphics and orange detailing.

The Ami’s relatively low weight and the instant availability of torque from the electric motor means you can zip out of junctions and through slow town traffic with much the same ease as in a Smart ForTwo EQ. The 28mph limited top speed will be a big issue for many, though.
