Citroen and teamwork together to make e-mobility easier in Europe’s cities | Citroen

• Citroën and Ubitricity begin cooperation with the launch of Citroën Ami in Great Britain
• Early AMI buyers can be charged for free when they are present for three months
• More than 5,500 charging points in London and the UK
• Plan: to expand cooperation to other cities in Europe

Paris (FR) and Berlin (DE), September 21, 2022: Citroën and Ubitricity, a member of the Shell Group, have signed a cooperation agreement to make electric mobility more accessible to drivers in European cities. This collaboration aims to encourage drivers to switch to electric vehicles (EVs) and help more cities provide on-street electric vehicle charging for their residents. The goal is to raise awareness of alternative mobility options that support the energy transition by collaborating with innovative solution providers to deliver a complete service package for motorists and municipalities.

The collaboration will start in London and will help Citroën Ami buyers charge their vehicles in street parking when it goes on sale in September 2022. Drivers who purchase a new Citroën Ami get 3-month free shipping on the Ubitricity EV charging network of more than 5,500 charging stations EV in Greater London and a growing list of other UK locations. To start a free recharge session, AMI drivers can activate their discount with a unique code in the Shell Recharge app.

In Europe, the collaboration will focus on enabling the shift to electric vehicles with more chargers in lampposts in more cities. Electric vehicle chargers will be available in a growing number of markets across Europe for Citroën’s growing electric fleet and the partnership will aim to further accelerate this growth. Using existing infrastructure such as street lamps provides a quick and easy way for urban areas to create a dense charging network without long planning stages. Street charging options for electric vehicles allow drivers who do not have a private driveway or garage to purchase an electric vehicle. Because charging electric cars on the street is just as convenient – say overnight, when the cars have been parked for a long time anyway – like charging at home.

Aside from collaboration, there are two ways to use the Uubitricity charging network: Either scan the QR code attached to the charging station with your smartphone and follow some instructions on the access page – no subscription or app is required for this. Or use apps from any provider like Shell Recharge, which offers additional functionality to keep track of all your recharges and your monthly payment plan.

“The visions of Citroën’s Ami charging stations and Ubitricity lantern charging stations are identical – simple, space-saving, simple, space-saving, resource-efficient and affordable for everyone,” says Daniel Konkel, CEO of Ubitricity. “Space is a premium in many European cities, and for electric vehicle drivers who are not They have their own parking lot, Ubitricity’s lamppost charging solution provides convenient and affordable access to street charging right at their doorstep.”

“We are very excited to be working with Ubitricity on this project,” says Laurent Barria, Citroën Director of Global Marketing and Communications. “Ami offers a comprehensive urban mobility solution, and our goal is to make freedom of movement easier and convenient for as many people as possible.”

Jörg Dross, Managing Director of Citroën UK said: “Through this partnership, we want to offer UK buyers a hassle-free and affordable solution to charging their Ami. This is in line with Citroën’s philosophy of offering electric vehicles with a customer-centric approach, where they are The care is very present.”

More details about the joint projects under the partnership will be announced on the Ubitricity and Citroën channels in the coming months.
