New Citroën ë-C4, Inaugurating Electrification for the Compact Hatchback
In 2020, Citroën introduced the program “Citroën goes Ëlectric for all” with the launch of six electric cars – one of which was the fully electric Citroën ë-C4. Its introduction marked a new stage in Citroën’s increasingly spirited electrification strategy as a reinvented compact hatchback. Today, ë-C4 makes up 40% of all C4 units sold in Europe.
New Citroën ë-C4 is a strong step forward in Citroën design, offering a raised stance on large diameter wheels that are seemingly ready to pounce. Designed with an energetic, aerodynamic and mixed silhouette, it incorporates SUV standards and an assertive design that provides numerous possibilities for customization.
Similar to New Citroën C3 and C5 Aircross, New Citroë-C4 is fitted with Citroën Advanced Comfort® which offers modern all-round comfort for all, with a focus on every aspect of onboard well-being. It is also equipped with the Citroën unique suspension: Progressive Hydraulic Cushions®, Advanced Comfort seats, and Citroën Smart Pad Support™.
The comfortable riding experience is elevated with 6 driving assistance technologies, including Adaptive Cruise Control, City Stop, Active Lane Positioning Assist, Driver Attention Alert, Traffic Sign Recognition, Blind Spot Detection and six connectivity technologies. These qualities are amplified in the New Citroën ë-C4, with a 100% electric engine, delivering all the advantages of the ë-Comfort: silence, smoothness, ease and pleasure of use, which is enjoyed by both driver and passengers in the car.
New Citroën ë-C4 has an efficient engine with zero CO2 emission and offers a driving range of up to 350 km (WLTP measure) for smooth electric riding comfort. Its electric motor has a power of up to 130 HP and torsion of 300 Nm immediately available for clean, linear acceleration. Citroën ë-C4 uses a 50 kWh battery with high voltage of 400 V Lithium-Ion.
The electric car has a braking mode that amplifies deceleration without pressing the brake pedals and increases range. This system enables energy recovery during the braking and deceleration phases.
ë-C4 drivers can choose from three modes – Eco, Normal and Power –. Each mode regulates various parameters including AC and power, as well as effective power and performance. This enables the driver to select a combination of optimal dynamic driving or eco-driving. To provide assurance to the owners of New Citroën ë-C4, the traction battery is under warranty for 8 years or 160,000 km.
“The New electric Citroën ë-C4 offers an emission-free driving experience, with premium Citroën style comfort. Embodying the Citroën DNA through extraordinary innovative design and comfort, we believe that ë-C4 will become one of the best EV technology cars for our consumers in Indonesia,” explained Stefan Hutahayan.
