The electric Citroen e-C4 and e-C4 X get a bigger electric motor and battery for improved performance and range.
The electric versions of the C4 launched with a 50kWh battery and 134bhp electric motor, promising range of around 220 miles on a full charge.
Now, Citroen has decided it’s time to boost power and battery size for the e-C4 and e-C4 X and, useful though the improvements are, they’re not exactly a million miles away from what’s already on offer.
The latest updates see the e-C4 and e-C4 X get a more powerful 154bhp motor as well as a new 54kWh battery, combing to add around 40 miles of range and promising to be more efficient too, with a heat pump to maximise energy efficiency.
But the new motor and battery for the e-C4 and e-C4 X aren’t an upgrade to the current models, but an addition to the range. Which seems a bit odd.
As well as announcing the upgrades, Citroen says it’s decided to offer the C4 X (the ICE-powered versions) in the UK to meet fleet demands and offer a lower entry price for private buyers.
