Up until now, the cheapest e-C4 you could get your mitts on started at around £30,895. But now, thanks to a range shuffle from Citroen, this new ‘Sense’ version begins at just £28,495 on the road, after the Plug-in Car Grant (PiCG) is applied.
And that should also translate to lower monthly leasing costs, too.
A spokesperson for the French firm tells us:
“Citroen UK has revised its New e-C4 Electric line-up for 2022, in response to customer demand for more accessible vehicle specifications and trim levels.
A new entry-level ‘Sense’ version joins the all-electric New e-C4 range from January – helping more customers to make the switch to electric.”
Don’t be fooled into thinking that ‘entry level’ equates to ‘no frills’ - because the Sense e-C4 still comes with a surprising amount of goodies as standard.
You get LED headlights, 18-inch ‘Crosslight’ alloy wheels, power folding mirrors, rear parking sensors and Keyless Entry & Start.
When it comes to safety equipment, also included as standard are video-assisted Active Safety Brake, Speed Limit Information, Lane Keeping Assist and Forward Collision Warning.
Inside the cabin lease customers will find a 10 inch infotainment touchscreen with full phone connectivity, Citroen’s trademark comfort suspension and plush seats, as well as dual zone climate control.
And the good news doesn’t end there.
Citroen has also unveiled a new ‘Shine Edition’ which replaces the outgoing ‘Shine’ trim level - which was formerly the base model.
For your monthly leasing fee you’d enjoy an e-C4 with a head-up display, Active Cruise Control, Active Blind Spot Detection and the Safety Plus Pack - which boasts Extended Traffic Sign Recognition and radar-assisted Active Safety Brake night-time and cyclist detection.
The ‘Shine Edition’ variants also benefit from sat nav, front and rear parking sensors, colour reversing camera, a heated steering wheel and a two position boot floor.
If that still doesn’t give you everything you crave, you’ll need the top-rung ‘Shine Plus’ trim.
Here you get everything from an uprated sound system to wireless phone charging, leather seats and ambient interior lighting.
What’s more, across the entire e-C4 range, Citroen says it has been able to eke out more miles from the 50 kWh battery before it needs to be recharged - taking the maximum range from around 217 miles to 235 miles.
A Citroen spokesperson adds:
“These changes add yet more versatility and further peace-of-mind for everyday use and longer journeys.”
The new models are available to order now.
