Need to know
The new Citroen C4 will be launched in 2021 and comes with petrol, diesel - and, for the first time, EV power. It's based on the Peugeot 2008 and the outgoing C4 Cactus, which it effectively replaces. The electric Citroen C4, badged e-C4, is expected to use the same tech as the Peugeot e-2008 - meaning it can cover up to 193 miles on a single charge according to WLTP tests. The e-C4 is expected to feature a 136PS electric motor and 50kWh battery, and can support 100kW rapid charging. The petrol range will be made up of the 1.2-litre three-cylinder PureTech petrol engine with 75, 100 or 130PS outputs. The only diesel offering will be the 100PS BlueHDi engine. The 2021 C4 sports a new crossover coupe look, morphing from a hatchback as the crossover SUV market gets increasingly more popular with UK buyers. Citroen has confirmed that all C4s will focus on comfort, offering Advanced Comfort seats and Progressive Hydraulic Cushions. Information about boot space and dimensions is set to be released soon. Inside, the new C4 looks like a modernised C4 Cactus. There's a new digital dashboard and a redesigned centre console, along with a heads up display. The new C4 and e-C4 will go on UK sale at the start of 2021 and will be more expensive than the £22,190 starting price of today’s C4 Cactus. The e-C4 is likely to cost more than £30,000, but will qualify for the Government's £3000 plug-in car grant.
