The Citroën ë-C4 Electric has gained a new entry-level ‘Sense’ version, with prices starting at £29,995. As it is eligible for the OZEV Plug-in Car Grant (PiCG), this results in a price of just £28,495 after the grant is applied.
The 2022 ë-C4 range now includes ‘Sense’, ‘Shine Edition’ and ‘Shine Plus’ models, with the ‘Sense Plus’ trim no longer being offered.
The Citroën ë-C4 Electric ‘Sense’ trim includes LED headlights, 18-inch ‘Crosslight’ alloy wheels, power folding mirrors, rear parking sensors and Keyless Entry & Start. Safety equipment included as standard includes Active Safety Brake (video assisted), Speed Limit Information, Lane Keeping Assist and Forward Collision Warning.
Infotainment includes a 10-inch touchscreen featuring Bluetooth telephone and audio streaming, DAB digital radio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The front passenger also benefits from Citroën Smart Pad Support, which provides an integrated mount for tablet devices without distracting the driver.
The Citroën ë-C4 Electric ‘Shine Edition’ is another new trim level, which replaces the outgoing ‘Shine’ trim level and offers the same specification for £30,495 (after the PiCG). ‘Shine Edition’ features Citroën Connect Nav (with a free, three-year subscription to real time traffic updates), front and rear parking sensors, colour reversing camera, heated steering wheel and a two-position boot floor, as well as a head-up display, Active Cruise Control, Active Blind Spot Detection and the Safety Plus Pack.
The current best-seller in the Citroën ë-C4 Electric range in the UK – the ‘Shine Plus’ trim (£34,995) – remains in place at the top of the range. ‘Shine Plus’ models add extra equipment including heated front seats – one of the most important items of equipment for an electric car to minimise use of the battery for cabin heating.
To improve the efficiency of all ë-C4 Electric models changes were made in October 2021 to both the heat pump and transmission system resulting in a range that can be increased by nearly 18 miles depending on usage conditions.
