From the article:

The Moroccan government signs a new agreement with Stellantis, a multinational automotive group founded on January 16th, 2021, resulting from the merger of the French group PSA and the Italian-American Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. This is the expansion of an existing partnership between the kingdom and PSA which has enabled the construction of a Peugeot 208 and Citroen Ami assembly plant in Kenitra, 53 km from the Moroccan capital Rabat.

The Kenitra plant will also produce the Opel Rocks-e, an electric car recently launched on the international market by German carmaker Opel, a subsidiary of the Stellantis group. It is a short two-seater of 2.41 metres, which can be driven by young people from the age of 15, especially in Germany, with an AM1 driving licence. The Opel Rocks-e is actually a rebadged Citroën Ami dedicated to the Moroccan and international market.

I posted this for two reasons:

1) Stellantis is putting a lot behind these small, no license needed, electric vehicles.
2) Most do not know that, as a group, we have a plant in Morocco.

Stellantis is also marketing the Ami as an urban delivery vehicle.

It bridges the gap between cycle couriers, and the smallest, B-segment, vans like FIAT Fiorino / Peugeot Blipper / Citroën Nemo.
Clever. Y'know small electric vans were the last electrics to be dropped in the UK. They were used to ferry items from the train deliveries to small businesses. Made a lot more sense than big trucks. The UK has working trains that reach most of the population, unlike some countries I could mention.
