RAY MASSEY and the new all-electric Citroen e-C4 X

‘Does my boot look big in this?’ is a fair question to ask of the new all-electric Citroen e-C4 X, says RAY MASSEY

‘Does my boot look big in this?’ is a fair question to ask of the new all-electric Citroen e-C4 X. 

The French marque has given a distinctive derriere to its 4.6m-long, four-door fastback alternative to mid-sized models.

With a 510-litre boot and roomy interior, the 100kW powertrain offers a range of up to 224 miles, fitting in between the existing C4 hatch and flagship C5 X.

It’s being sold in the UK and many European markets only as a pure electric car. 

Expect prices from £33,000, with first deliveries by spring 2023.

Citroen says its ‘capacious’ 510-litre boot volume, roomy interior, and ‘outstanding rear knee room’ makes it the ideal for everyday use in cities by families, and by professional drivers or chauffeur businesses.

Citroën CEO Vincent Cobée said: ‘Many customers have told us they want an affordable, responsible and elegant alternative to the mass of hatchback and SUV offerings in the volume compact car segment, and this is our best interpretation of that need.’

Hyundai’s newly revealed all-electric Tesla-rivalling Ioniq 6 

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Citroen should be greatly pleased by Korean car giant Hyundai’s newly revealed all-electric Tesla-rivalling Ioniq 6.

It’s the stylistic spitting image of the French marque’s classic curvaceously sweeping C6 saloon sold from 2006 to 2012. 

And there’s just a hint of Mercedes-Benz in the rear tail. Expect prices from around £40,000 when order books open later this year ahead of deliveries in 2023.
