Citroen adds entry-level e-C4 models to beat government grant cut

11 Jan 2022

Citroen has revised its line-up of the e-C4 electric hatchback adding two new lower-spec variants that remain eligible for the recently reduced UK government grant for EVs.

Last month the Government reduced the maximum price of electric cars eligible for a grant to £32,000, while also reducing the grant by £1000 to £1500.

From January Citroen will offer a new entry-level trim level called Sense, with prices starting from £29,995 or £28,495 after the grant has been applied. 

The Sense variant includes an array of standard features such as LED headlights, 18-inch alloy wheels, power folding mirrors, rear parking sensors and Keyless Entry & Start.

Sense models also gain safety equipment including Active Safety Brake, Speed Limit Information and Lane Keeping Assist. 

Inside the e-C4 infotainment system is operated via a 10-inch touchscreen which features Bluetooth and audio streaming as well as Apple Carplay and Android Auto. 

Citroen will also offer a new Shine Edition costing £30,495 after the Government grant has been applied which gains further standard features over the Sense variant. 

It includes a head-up display, Active cruise control and a Safety Plus Pack. Citroen Connect Nav is also available with front and rear parking sensors, reversing camera and more. 

Topping the e-C4 range remains the Shine Plus variant which starts from £34,995, which excludes it from the Government discount. 

Shine Plus models add wireless smartphone charging, a HiFi speaker system and leather seats. 

All e-C4 models have a 50kWh battery which can achieve a range of 217-219 miles of range depending on which trim level you select.
