Citroen has launched the e-C4 X which is an all-electric version of the C4 X, a four-door fastback with some SUV attributes. The e-C4 X is built on the same CMP platform as the C4 and C5 X.
The Citroen e-C4 X offers sedan car space with a large trunk, quiet operation and modern SUV-inspired styling. In terms of dimensions, the Citroen e-C4 X has a length of 4.6 meters, a width of 1.8 meters, a height of 1.52 meters and a wheelbase of 2.67 meters. Unlike the C4, which has a luggage capacity of 380 liters (13.4 cu-ft.), the e-C4 X has a luggage capacity of 510 liters (18 cu.ft.).
The Citroen e-C4 X is available only in a 136 hp version, with front-wheel drive. This car focuses on comfort rather than sport. In WLTP standards, the Citroen e-C4 X has a range of 223 miles (approximately 360 kilometers) on a full charge of its 50 kWh battery.
The Citroen e-C4 X battery can be charged from a 7.4 kW wall box, which will take seven and a half hours from a single-phase supply to a full charge, or five hours from a three-phase supply.
When using a DC charger, the e-C4 X can generate up to 100 kW of energy. Citroen claims to charge from 0 to 80 percent in just 30 minutes.
There are three driving modes available for the e-C4 X: Eco, Normal, or Sport. To change the driving mode, the driver uses the selector located on the center console.
Like just any other electric vehicle, the e-C4 X uses an internal regenerative braking system that can partially recharge the battery to save as much distance as possible, while reducing the need to depress the brake pedal.
Stellantis will build all e-C4 X and C4 X models in Europe, at its facility in Villaverde, near Madrid, Spain. Sales will gradually start from Fall 2022, and the new e-C4 X and C4 X will only be available in Europe.
