French automotive company Citroën caused quite the stir in the car world with its tiny all-electric Ami, and now the marque has announced a new take on the vehicle: the Ami Cargo.

In standard form, the two-seater costs just $22 USD a month and it’s so small that you don’t even need a license to drive it around town (in France at least). It comes with a floor-mounted 5.5kWh battery that’s good for 44 miles on a full charge and a top speed of just 28 MPH, making it the perfect car for getting around congested cities.

Now, Citroën wants to tackle the world of delivery systems. Roads are often full of supersized courier vans, but the Ami Cargo is here to solve that problem once and for all. At just $29 USD a month, people in sectors including local service companies, delivery services, tradesmen, craftsmen, self-employed professionals, local authorities, and administrations can opt-in for the monthly service to own one of these cars to deliver their goods around town.

As the Ami is tiny, Citroën had to remove the passenger seat to make it a one-seater with cargo space. There is now a modular storage compartment that packs a volume of 400 liters and a payload of 140kg, and this can be customized for different uses such as needing a desk to work on or if you need to lower or raise the floor height to get parcels in the Ami Cargo.

The Cargo version now comes with a 6kW electric motor paired to the standard 5.5kWh battery, pushing range up to 47 miles on a full charge and offering the same top speed of 28 MPH. The Citroën Ami Cargo is expected to launch in June in France, costing just $7,821 USD or $29 USD a month.
