Lidl goes electric!

For more than a year now, Citroën has been a hit with its mini electric car AMI, for which a new commercial model had been imagined. The AMI is indeed on sale in Fnac and (only in France) at Darty. At Lidl, we obviously found that there was an idea, and we decided to follow suit.

“Real” car

First of all, it should be noted that Lidl does not really get into the car. No scenario for Lidl sneakers, a real fashion phenomenon that has seen said sneakers resell at incredible prices on the Internet. The car offered is not a Lidl brand. This is an Elaris Finn, electric car made in China. Major difference with the Citroën AMI, which is in fact a motorized quadricycle, limited to 45 km / h, the Elaris is a car strictly speaking, comparable to a Smart. It measures 2.8 m long, weighs 930 kg, is driven by a 45 hp engine authorizing 115 km / h at peak, and the electric range is some 300 km. Two people can take place on board, where they will find a beautiful 12.3” touch screen, and a multimedia system compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Two formulas

So this is the car that Lidl offers, according to two commercial formulas. You can either buy the Elaris cash for €20,300, or subscribe to a subscription of €222 per month, including 10,000 km per year. Now the bad news: this novelty is currently only available in Lidl stores in Germany. But there is no doubt that if the formula works, it will be extended to other European markets…
