“The e-C4 is another really useful, practical pure electric car that feels a little bit expensive when you compare it to its traditionally powered stablemates. But that doesn’t stop it being really very good at what it does. It’s a lovely place to spend time.”

“I like the fact that Citroen has managed to build a sensible five-door hatch but give it a really stylish feel inside and out. The range is good and the driving experience is wonderfully relaxed. This would make a fine family car.”

Unsurprisingly, the Citroen e-C4 is more expensive than its combustion engine relations, but it’s competitive against its plug-in rivals.

​Pricing

That the e-C4 is at the top end of the C4 pricing spectrum comes as little surprise, really, that is pretty much the industry norm presently. Starting at £30,895 for the Sense Plus model it’s close enough to the range-topping Shine Plus model for us to recommend you stretch to it, because it comes with the most comprehensive list of standard equipment. Specifically, that Shine Plus brings things like premium audio equipment, the whole host of safety kit, including, usefully, Active Blind Spot Detection, as well as some nice touches like a heated steering wheel and front seats. 

Unsurprisingly, too, the e-C4’s pricing pitches it against its Peugeot e2008 relation, as well as against what’s likely to be its most formidable competitor, the VW ID.3. It’s worth noting that rivals like the Kia e-Niro and Hyundai Ioniq Electric are also around the same price, and, potentially, offer greater range. 

Running costs

With 1% BIK it’s a wise buy for a business buyer, electric is the way to go if you’re intent on spending as little on your company car. Retained values aren’t likely to be as strong as those for its key rivals, though in every other area the e-C4 is as similarly inexpensive an ownership proposition as its plug-in alternatives.
