What should I be paying?
Prices start aggressively low, and the base spec isn't too grim. But from launch, you get a free step-up to the next trim level if you buy on PCP.
From the mid-level Shine trim the existing auto-brake is refined with better sensors so it works for pedestrians, and at night, and that pack also uses the sensors for adaptive cruise control.
On PCP that's £197 a month over four years with a £6k deposit for the 130bhp auto. Whereas for the electric version it's £6k and £282 a month. You could probably find that in fuel saving, parking and, if London, congestion charging.
The final payment for the electric version is nearly £4k higher, so Citroen is obviously confident of EV residuals.
WLTP consumption for the 1.2 auto we tested is 44.7mpg.
For the electric, WLTP range is 217 miles, so that's about a real 190, and 140 on 70mph motorway in summer. It'll recharge at 100kW on an ultra-rapid charger, for 0-80 per cent in just half an hour. Citroen is offering a free home wallbox.
