The affordable electric car is here: Citroën ë-C3 prices start from £21,990, and it has a 199 mile range. Order books open for the ë-C3 in July.

The Citroën ë-C3 is the first model from Stellantis to feature the new and cost-efficient ‘BEV-focused’ ‘Smart Car’ platform using a 44kWh LFP (Lithium Ferro Phosphate) battery pack to deliver up to 199 miles of driving range (WLTP combined cycle).

Standard AC fast charging from 20% to 80% takes around four hours and 10 minutes using a 7.4kW charger, or two hours and 50 minutes with the optional 11kW on-board charger. The 100kW DC rapid charging capabilities allow charging from 20% to 80% in as little as 26 minutes.

The 113hp (83kW) electric motor enables acceleration from 0-62mph in around 11 seconds, and a provisional top speed of 84mph. 

The ë-C3 is available in two trim levels, PLUS (£21,990) and MAX (£23,690).

PLUS versions feature a new 10-inch central touchscreen which enables wireless smartphone mirroring compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and offers voice recognition. All versions also feature Advanced Comfort front seats and Advanced Comfort suspension.

The ë-C3 offers driving aids including video-based active safety brake, Active Lane Departure Warning System, speed limit detection and recommendation, driver attention alert, hill start assist, cruise control, and a speed limiter. 

On top of the features offered in PLUS versions, ë-C3 MAX variants offer a rear parking camera, automatic air conditioning, LED rear lights, dark-tinted windows, as well as a heated steering wheel, heated windscreen, and heated front seats. MAX versions offer even more connectivity for drivers with real-time traffic updates and speed camera awareness, through ‘Citroën Connect PLUS’ services.

Owners will also be able to plan journeys as well as monitor their charging status and battery level in real time, and enjoy a complete navigation experience, thanks to the new e-ROUTES app. This app is specifically for Citroën electric vehicles as part of the brand’s ‘Connect Plus’ connected services subscription. 

Using the MyCitroën smartphone app, ë-C3 drivers will be able to manage charging schedules, check the battery level and location, as well as precondition the cabin of MAX versions.

Prices for the petrol C3 start from £17,790.
