Fewer doors for more adventure. Citroën has unveiled a new version of its license-free car, the Friend. Arriving on the roads in June 2020, the Friend can be driven from the age of 14. This quadricycle is rather intended for the macadam of the cities. But with this “buggy” version, Citroën wants to get it off the road.
Inspired by construction games
First observation, the new Friend is rid of its doors. Fortunately, the builder has thought of rainy days and muddy soils by providing transparent and waterproof canvases. A spare wheel was placed on the roof of the vehicle, a strange choice since the Buggy’s roof is also panoramic.
Protective grilles have been added to the headlights as well as roof bars. The accessories have been 3D printed. “We looked for inspiration in the world of construction games”, says Citroën in its press release.
Waiting for returns before it goes into production
The Buggy is currently not intended to be marketed. “This decision will be made according to the reception received by the concept”, informs a Citroën spokesperson at L’Usine Nouvelle, referring to the feedback from the press and social networks.
Assembled at the Kenitra plant in Morocco, the Ami sold 13,000 copies for its first year of marketing, including 9,000 in France and the rest in Europe (Portugal, Spain, Italy, Belgium and United Kingdom) .
