Citroën have revealed the all-electric New ë-C4 X. Following in the footsteps of the stylish New Citroën C5 X, the design of New ë-C4 X offers customers a cross-segment design that combines the elegant silhouette of a fastback with the modern attitude of an SUV, whilst maintaining the timeless refinement and spaciousness of a four-door model.
With a 100kW powertrain, New ë-C4 X is capable of a range up to 223 miles (WLTP-certified), whilst allowing drivers to benefit from advanced ë-comfort – thanks to the virtual silence of electric powertrain – and saloon car spaciousness, with a 510-litre boot that is ideal for everyday use, especially for families.
Vincent Cobée, Citroën Global CEO, said: “Many customers have told us they want an affordable, responsible and elegant alternative to the mass of hatchback and SUV offerings in the volume compact car segment, and this is our best interpretation of that need – a forward-looking, distinctive cross design that delivers all the comfort, technology, safety and value you expect from Citroën, but also outstanding roominess and limousine versatility, with the benefit of zero-emission, all-electric power”.
The 100kW full-electric drivetrain is powerful and energetic, with 136hp and 260Nm of torque that is instantly available, a 0-62 mph time of 9.5-seconds in Sport mode and a top speed of 93 mph (where legally permitted). Furthermore, regenerative braking enables the driver to partially re-charge the 50kWh battery pack and increase range while on the move.
Three driving modes are available – Eco, Normal or Sport – activated by a mode selector on the centre console. Eco mode offers the highest levels of efficiency, Sport mode offers the highest levels of performance, while Normal mode balances the two.
Drivers can charge New ë-C4 X at public charging stations and at home. From a 7.4kW Wallbox, charging takes 7½ hours with a single-phase supply or as little as 5 hours with a three-phase electricity supply and the optional 11kW onboard charger. From a 100kW rapid public charger, the battery can charge from 0% to 80% in just 30 minutes.
Vehicle charging and pre-conditioning can be pre-programmed using the car’s MyCitroën Drive Plus touchscreen interface or via the MyCitroën app. For added customer peace of mind, the battery warranty for New ë-C4 X is eight years or 100,000 miles, for 70% of the original charge capacity.
