Citroën ë-C4 Sense review

Featured in:
March 2024

The ë-C4 is a crossover that combines a coupe’s sleek lines with a hatchback’s practicality.

But is it any good to drive, and does it make sense as an electric car? Let’s find out.

The ë-C4 is powered by a single electric motor that produces 136PS and 300Nm of torque, which propels the front wheels through a single-speed automatic gearbox.

Its battery has a capacity of 50kWh, which gives the car a claimed range of 219 miles, while charging the battery from 0 to 100% takes around 7.5 hours on a 7.4kW home wallbox or 30 minutes for a 0 to 80% top-up on a 100kW rapid charger.

A burst of torque from the electric motor delivers instant acceleration, making it feel nippy around town.

There are three driving modes to choose from: Eco, Normal and Sport, with Eco limiting the power output and maximising the regenerative braking, which helps to extend the range.

The suspension system is one of the highlights, as it features Citroën’s Progressive Hydraulic Cushions technology. This means that hydraulic bump stops at each end of the suspension travel absorb shocks and vibrations from uneven roads.

On the inside, the ë-C4 is spacious, with a minimalist dashboard and a digital instrument cluster, which looks stylish. There is plenty of headroom and legroom for front and rear passengers. The boot space is decent too, offering 380 litres with the rear seats up and 1,250 litres folded down in a 60/40 split. The infotainment system is easy to use, with clear graphics and intuitive menus. The only downside is that some of the settings are buried in submenus. If you’re looking for an electric car that’s different from the rest, the ë-C4 is certainly worth looking at.

Price: £31,995
