New Citroen C4 offers choice of petrol, diesel or electric

Published 18 June 2020

Citroen has unveiled the all-new C4 crossover. It will go on sale in early 2021 and be offered with petrol, diesel and electric powertrains, with prices starting in the region of £24,000.

Citroen is keeping full technical details of the new C4 under wraps until its official debut at the end of the month, however, the car is based on the underpinnings as the Peugeot 2008 and will replace the C4 Cactus

The electric Citroen C4, badged e-C4, is expected to use the same tech as the Peugeot e-2008 - meaning it'll be capable of covering 193 miles on a single charge according to WLTP tests. The e-C4 is expected to  feature a 136PS electric motor and 50kWh battery, and can support 100kW rapid charging.

The petrol range will be made up of the 1.2-litre three-cylinder PureTech petrol engine with 75, 100 or 130PS outputs. The only diesel offering will be the 100PS BlueHDi engine.

The 2021 C4 sports a new crossover coupe look, morphing from a hatchback as the crossover SUV market gets increasingly more popular with UK buyers.

Citroen has confirmed that all C4s will focus on comfort, offering Advanced Comfort seats and Progressive Hydraulic Cushions. Information about boot space and dimensions is set to be released soon. Inside, the new C4 looks like a modernised C4 Cactus. There's a new digital dashboard and a redesigned centre console, along with a heads up display.

The new C4 and e-C4 will go on UK sale at the start of 2021 and will be more expensive than the £22,190 starting price of today’s C4 Cactus. The e-C4 is likely to cost more than £30,000, but will qualify for the Government's £3000 plug-in car grant.

The electric C4 is the sixth electrified Citroen vehicle set to be launched in the next 12 months - with the C5 Aircross plug-in hybrid, the Ami quadricycle and three vans rounding out the line-up.

I like that they’re being different by offering comfort as a priority. There’s a bit too much emphasis on sportiness these days, especially for typical UK roads.
