Since its launch in 2020, the Citroën Ami has gone from strength to strength, with more than 30,000 orders in France and more than 13,000 orders in Italy. But wherever it is launched, the small Citroën Ami is causing a stir, even in markets where it was not initially planned, such as Turkey.
From December 2021, the Citroën Ami was initially sold in Turkey only to companies. Sales to private individuals began in June 2022, with a first batch of 50 units sold in less than 25 minutes, a success that surprised the brand's Turkish management. .
This success was repeated in June 2023 when Citroën put on sale the 100 My Ami Buggy units reserved for Turkey out of the 1,000 produced, which were also sold very quickly, with one My Ami Buggy sold every 40 seconds. In total, around 2,752 Amis have been sold in Turkey since the launch, including 1,900 to individuals, a figure that should exceed 2,700 sales to individuals by the end of 2023.
This data is important because it makes Turkey the third market for the Citroën Ami, after France, of the nine markets where the brand's little chip is sold, which shows the excellent reception the Ami has received on the Turkish market.
It's quite a destiny for this Citroën Ami, whose success no one could have predicted at the time of its launch in 2020 and which has now spawned two derivatives under the Stellantis brand, but which remains unique because of its price positioning. accessible and the favourite of young people who use it to get to secondary school.
