What should I be paying?
Citroen has recently revised its e-C4 trim, in line with updating the available powertrains. The cheapest e-C4 is ‘Sense’ at £31,995, the ‘C-Series Edition’ is £34,495, and the top spec ‘e-Series’ £36,295, or £37,195 if you want the bigger battery/e-motor, which is only available in this trim level.
On a four-year PCP allowing for 10,000 miles a year and a £5k deposit, you’ll be paying around £500 per month for your e-C4 Sense. Add £50/month for C-Series Edition, and around £35/month for the top spec e-Series, or £55/month if you want the bigger battery/e-motor.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE IN KIT?
Base-spec Sense models come with 18-inch alloy wheels, body coloured bumpers, tinted windows, LED headlights, auto headlights and wipers, keyless entry and start, rear parking sensors, cruise control, and Citroen’s advanced comfort suspension. Inside you get a 5.5-inch digital instrument display and 10-inch central touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. And there’s a whole suite of safety systems too, including active safety brake, speed limit information, forward collision warning and Citroën’s emergency assistance system. What more could you need?
Well, C-Series Edition models up the style with an anodised bronze colour pack and bespoke C-Series badging. Inside, the 10-inch touchscreen features My Citroën Drive Plus, which gets you connected navigation and a three-year subscription to real-time traffic and speed camera alerts, and heated driver and front passenger seats. And there’s yet more safety features including video and radar-assisted active safety brake, which can detect cyclists and pedestrians.
Top spec e-Series models get a black roof, 18-inch black aeroblade alloy wheels, and a dark chrome colour pack. Because stealth, presumably. Inside, there’s an upgraded hi-fi, wireless charging, and an Alcantara finish to the seats.
WHAT'S THE BEST SPEC?
The Citroen e-C4 isn’t a sporty car, and nor is it designed to be so, instead putting comfort first and foremost. Which means the smaller battery/electric motor pairing is just fine, particularly considering the uplift in price.
Base-spec Sense trim is really all we reckon you’d need too, given the already impressive equipment list as standard. All in that’s £31,995, or £500/month on lease.
