Citroen e-C4: what would you like to read next?

Is the Citroen e-C4 a good car?

Citroen might be a little late to the EV game, but it’s catching up fast if models such as the new Citroen e-C4 are anything to go by.

The new Citroen e-C4 is a family hatchback similar to the Volkswagen Golf and Ford Focus, but as with many models in the Citroen range, it’s not as traditional as those cars. It has a few elements of SUV styling, for example, and there’s even a coupe-like roofline at the rear.

There’s a new set of LED lights that have a different look from previous Citroens – it’s sharper and bolder than before. It also has a much more sporty shape than other Citroens, which tend to have a softer, more rounded look. It’s more in line with other sharp-styled models that are a similar price, such as the SEAT Leon.

The Citroen e-C4’s interior isn’t as unusual as the one in the old Citroen C4 Cactus nor the C3 Aircross. It’s more traditional, with dark, soft-touch materials and a large 10-inch media system with sat-nav and smartphone connectivity.

The dash has a more dramatic design as well, with sweeping lines rather than the flat and practical set-up in other Citroens. There’s also a digital dial display and wireless smartphone charging available as part of the infotainment system.

The Citroen e-C4’s SUV-like styling means it’s a bit larger than alternatives such as the Volkswagen Golf, but it has a boot capacity of 380 litres, which is average for this size of family car.

However there is also a lower section of the boot that’s ideal for storing the e-C4’s charging cable.

The e-C4 looks good but its 217-mile range is merely competitive, not earth-shattering.

There are three trim levels: Sense Plus, Shine and Shine Plus.

All models come with LED headlights, 18-inch alloy wheels, a 10-inch infotainment system with smartphone connectivity, autonomous emergency braking, lane keep assist and dual-zone climate control.

On Sense Plus you get a head-up display, sat-nav, a tablet holder on the dash, an auto-dimming main mirror and a reversing camera. Shine models get more safety kit including traffic sign recognition, adaptive cruise control and blind spot assist. You also get keyless go on this model, and e-C4 versions have a heated steering wheel.

Shine Plus is the top-spec model and features a premium stereo system leather seats with electric adjustment and heating, four USB sockets and wireless smartphone charging.

The e-C4 has a 136hp electric motor with a 50kWh battery, which means it will go from 0-62mph in 9.7 seconds and has a top speed of 93mph. Its relatively small battery pack gives it a range of 217 miles from a single charge.

You can charge at a rate of 100kW on public chargers, for a 30-minute top-up to 80 per cent battery.

The Citroen e-C4 will go on sale in early 2021, and prices start at £29,180 (after the government grant for EVs is applied) and go up to £31,330.

We’ll be getting behind the wheel of the new Citroen e-C4 very shortly, so check back soon to find out what it’s like.
