Electric cars are cheaper to run, but still carry a hefty upfront price tag, which grew this week as the Government scrapped its £1,500 grants.

Technically a quadricycle rather than a car, because of its tiny 6kW motor and maximum speed of 28mph, the Ami is now available in the UK for just £19.99 a month to lease, with an upfront deposit of £2,369.

In the UK, you will need to be 16 and have the equivalent of a moped licence to drive the Ami.

I Call Bull: Well we called bull on this not needing a license over 3 years ago when the concept was released https://bit.ly/3HtgBa0 and it looks like we were right

Calling BULL now as this isn't just £20 a month to lease you need to stump up a deposit of £2,369 as well or buy it for £7,695

Oh and it is a left hand drive with a tiny range and tiny speed so no real use for 99% of the population

TBF I can imagine quite a few of these being shifted at that pricing point

Seems like a waste of time, money and space to me!

An ultra niche market that I can see certain people wanting one but at that cost (plus charging) surely a bus does a better job as there is no storage space in the car either
