Citroen e-C4 X priced from £31,995

Citroën is now accepting orders for its fully electric e-C4 X fastback in the UK.


Priced from £31,995, the new e-C4 X will be sold exclusively with an electric powertrain. 

The car has a range of 222 miles, while its motor will deliver 138PS and 260Nm of torque, making it capable of 9.5-second acceleration to 62mph and a top speed of 93mph.

From launch, the e-C4 X is available in three trim levels: Sense, Shine and Shine Plus.

Sense models come as standard with 18-inch alloy wheels, Advanced Comfort Seats, Keyless Entry and Start, as well as a 10-inch touchscreen equipped with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. 

Shine models gain My Citroën Drive Plus – Citroën’s next-generation infotainment and navigation system with integrated natural voice commands. Shine variants also benefit from a head-up display, a reversing camera, Automatic Intelligent Beam Headlights, as well as a heated steering wheel. Shine variants are priced from £34,495.

Range-topping Shine Plus adds Alcantara seats that are heated for the driver and front passenger and Highway Driver Assist, which includes Adaptive Cruise Control. Shine Plus versions start from £35,495.

With an overall length of 4,600mm, the e-C4 X slots into the Citroën line-up between the C4 hatchback at 4,360mm long, and new C5 X at 4,800mm. Its wheelbase at 2.67m, is the same as a C4 hatchback, both use the same ‘Common Modular Platform’ (CMP).

Along with the 510-litre boot, additional space below the floor is provided for carrying extra items, and for housing the charging cables.

The rear seat backrests also fold forwards for additional carrying capacity, and a ‘ski hatch’ in the fold-down armrest allows for loading of particularly long objects so they can extend into the cabin.

The e-C4 X’s EV drivetrain offers three driving modes – Eco, Normal or Sport – activated by a mode selector on the centre console.

From a 7.4kW Wallbox, charging takes seven and a half hours with a single-phase supply or five 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 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.

Up to 20 Citroën advanced driver assistance systems are available on the Citroën e-C4 X, including: Active Safety Brake; Collision Risk Alert and Post Collision Safety Brake; Highway Driver Assist: Level 2 semi-autonomous driving aid, which combines adaptive cruise control with stop and go and active lane positioning; and adaptive cruise control with stop and go.

Additionally available technologies include blind spot monitoring; active lane departure warning; coffee break alert; driver attention alert; intelligent beam headlights; and extended traffic sign recognition and recommendation.

Citroen's new model unveiling follows sister brand Peugeot's unveiling of its forthcoming 408 model, which is set to exit a saloon segment in decline with a new fastback style.
