The Citroën ë-C4 Electric with ‘Shine Plus’ trim – top of the range and the current best-seller in the Citroën ë-C4 Electric range in the UK – costs £34,995, and includes extra equipment such as heated front seats – one of the most important items of equipment for an electric car to help to preserve its battery range in cold weather.
The Citroën ë-C4 Electric gained up to 18 miles of range in October 2021 thanks to changes to the heat pump and transmission system.
