Buying

What should I be paying?

Prices start at £21,990. That’s for the cheapest entry-level Plus trim, with range topping Max models starting from £23,690. A cheaper, 124-mile version with a smaller battery will arrive in 2025 too.

A quick comparison with rivals proves that the e-C3 is very competitively priced too, with a Vauxhall Corsa Electric starting from around £27k, a Mini Cooper Electric from around £30k, and a Peugeot e-208 from around £31.5k.

WHAT’S THE KIT LIST LIKE?

Plus models get 17in alloy wheels, black wheel arches, two-tone paint, roof rails, electric heated and folding door mirrors, head-up display, advanced comfort seats, advanced comfort suspension, a 10.25in colour touchscreen with smartphone mirroring, rear parking sensors and cruise control.

Top-of-the-range Max versions additionally get front fog lights, LED rear lights, heated front seats, steering wheel and windscreen, rear privacy glass, Citroen Connected Navigation, wireless charging, and a rear camera.

Standard colour is light blue, white is an extra £275, black, grey and metallic blue are £595, and metallic red is £695. And for heaven’s sake, we beg you to not be that person who gets it in white, black or grey.

WHAT’S THE BEST SPEC?

We reckon Plus trim brings with it enough goodies, though we’d likely add the heated front seats, steering wheel and windscreen (which will help the range go further in winter), plus the wireless charger. Job done.
